Light in the Darkness

It's dark now; snow begins falling.  I flip on the flood lights, and the porch lights, so now, there's this light in the dark.  How differently we see with the turn of a switch, as the moon is barely making it's mark on the sky this particular evening.

As the lights shine into the night, let us allow Jesus to shine into our night and drive our dark away.  He alone can and will do it.









Shine Into Our Night

We are not what we should be
We haven't sought what we should seek
We've seen Your glory Lord, but looked away
Our hearts are bent our eyes are dim
Our finest works are stained with sin
And emptiness has shadowed all our ways

Jesus Christ, shine into our night
Drive our dark away
Til Your glory fills our eyes
Jesus Christ, shine into our night
Bind us to Your cross, where we find life

Still we often go astray
We chase the world, forget Your grace
But You have never failed to bring us back
Reveal the depths of what You've done
The death You died, the vict'ry won
You made a way for us to know Your love

Jesus Christ, shine into our night
Drive our dark away
Til Your glory fills our eyes
Jesus Christ, shine into our night
Bind us to Your cross, where we find life
(Sovereign Grace Music 2011)

Always Experiencing Him,
Jody
