The sun is bleeding through the sky as if the day depended on it.
It is pushing so hard that its colors are taking over.
It is so supernatural
that seeing it
is like it is the first time.
And then the sun will take over
and the sunscreen will be put on
and the sunglasses will cover the eyes
as its beaming light will erase the darkness.
And then before you know it
the sun will start to pull its colors away
so that the moon will have the stage.
But the sun & moon are working together
as they provide the light that never goes out.
What if the sun wanted to take center stage at night
and said to the moon,
"I am the light".
What if the moon wanted to stay up all night
so that it could be the main attraction and greet the world in the morning
and respond back to the sun,
"I am the light".
I bet there would be no light.
But what if another VOICE
broke through the sun & moon's
bled all over the earth~
“I am the LIGHT of the world..."
Would the sun stop & would the moon stop
striving to be
when their role
was oh so important
as there is only one sun and only one moon
and only one you
who are all part of something so big
that when they step aside
and when you & I step aside
we become so enlightened
because we are
part of a bigger story.
As it isn't about
who casts the most light
because there is ONLY ONE who is the LIGHT
that does so much more
then making day day
or night or night~
"Whoever follows ME will not walk in darkness,
but will have the LIGHT of life" (John 8:12).
Because IN CHRIST there is no darkness
and HIS LIGHT
never goes out.
Oh step aside sun.
Oh step aside moon.
Oh step aside you & me & everyone else
and take the place of second,
for we are all part of a bigger story,
yet all play a part~
because if we all
made it about ourselves
would there be any room
to RECEIVE the LIGHT
that LIGHTS up our hearts
one by one by one
so that we become
HIS little beacons
just because we embraced the
that never goes out
as it pushes out the darkness in us.
Who is willing to take
so HE can shine through us
as HE continues to LIGHT up our hearts
the sunrise & sunset
the moonrise & the moonset
continues to light up the day and night
so that we continue to
let HIM shine from us,
because there is only one true LIGHT
that ignites the world.
"BE A LIGHT" (listen to the song below)
