The Light

Spoken Word piece I performed at the Grace Covenant Church 2014 Re:fresh Women's Conference

I am the light
You are the light
We are the light

Illuminating the darkness
Providing hope to the hopeless
Igniting the power of change
Testifying about the great exchange

Joy for pain
Forgiveness for sin
Death for life
Darkness for light

But do you live in the light?
Find it hard to live in the light?
Something blocking your light?

Is it sin?
Is it unforgiveness?
Negative thoughts?
Feelings of inadequacy?

No matter what don't hide your light!

Because if you don't shine, who will guide them?
Let me say that again, if you don't shine who will guide them?

I mean if YOU don't shine who will guide them?
Those in fear, hurting and walking darkness

Though you may feel like a tea light: weak and and barely capable
To someone you are a searchlight: God's best and surely able

Could it be
That He
Has trusted these imperfect vessels to carry and reflect His perfect light?

Yes, that's right!
We are the ambassadors of His love and Daughters of His light!

The true light
Drawing all men to the truth, to the light

Not like those neon lights on Broadway
Where they say
That dreams can come true...

But the true light
Of the only God who gives men true life
and reveals true dreams that DO come true

I am the light
You are the light
We are the light

Refresh and rekindle your flame
Fan the embers
Spark the fire


Shine, shine, shine
By living in the light

Shine, shine, shine
Tell of His Goodness
Share your journey

Because we bring glory
To His story
With our story
Reflected in His light


I am the light
You are the light
We are the light

So
Be the light
Be the light
Be the light
