"Be Thou my Sun, my selfishness destroy,
Thy atmosphere of Love be all my joy;
Thy Presence be my sunshine ever bright,
My soul the little mote that lives but in Thy light."
On such a day as this, with our Land facing such inner turmoil,
my own heart is choosing to look up,
to remain in that place of
Stillness before my God.
He is the ruler I will cling to,
when all else might feel shaken,
He remains constant
and ever loving.
"The Lord is God, and he has made his light shine on us."
And, thanks to the encouragement of my dear blogging friends
I have taken another "poetry plunge"
and taken on a new challenge
issued by poet and author, Ronovan Hester,
for his weekly Haiku Challenge at
This week the word prompts are
Flame & Kiss,
and the challenge is to use both words in a Haiku,
and then link back to his site to read
the writing of many other wonderful
poets and bloggers.
So, while I am praying for my Country,
and Resting in the Place of Stillness
that Jesus has called me to be,
These words have dropped like dew
to bring me encouragement.
Candle kisses Flame
Light sparks over darkened room
Softly falls the heart--Bettie Gilbert
May your own heart find encouragement
in the light of Jesus
