When the Light Comes

Revel in the Scriptures:
Genesis 1:3      Ecclesiastes 11:7,
Psalms 27:1     John 1:4-5
John 8:12       Revelation 22:5

The Light —
sharply focused,
piercingly shoots straight from its Source
and penetrates the Waiting: revealing, enfolding, consuming.

The Light–
irresistibly exploding
forcefully reaches every concealing corner
and uncovers the Hidden: exposing, bathing, purifying.

The Light–
gently reflected
caressingly heals all that it touches
and beckons the Weary: soothing, calming, refreshing

The Light —
purposefully aiming
powerfully nurtures creative compassion
and consumes the Willing: inspiring, energizing, clarifying

The Light is
and powerful.

The Light is
sharply focused,
irresistibly exploding,
gently reflected,
and purposefully aiming.

The Light invades
the Waiting
the Hidden
the Weary
and the Willing,
thus fulfilling its purpose.

The Light–
and consumes.

When the Light comes,
all is held – exposed – healed – inspired.

Light sets the darkness ablaze and explodes into more LIGHT
And there is no more HEAVINESS!
