Be Enlightened

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


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


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

second place

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)
