Know the Light

Updated on July 31, 2013

Tending to my hearts garden .. pulling out the weeds..

sowing ..nurturing the fertile ground

planting the Lords...loving seeds


The light in my heart shines

although many times...it has gone dim

but.. through the test of time

I persevere because...of him


Whatever the cause..of your light to dim

the Lord is always there

to give you strength we all sometimes need..

and lift you up .. into the air


Know the light ..you have in your heart

is placed there for a reason

as for the changes of life

they are just...the changing seasons

      A lovely poem than can be an inspiration to everyone - and how true that we need to pull out the weeds in our hearts and make sure that we only sow good seeds.

      Michael,

      This is so beautiful, uplifting, inspiring and very much needed!

      You had me at 'Tending to my hearts garden .. pulling out the weeds..'

      So fitting! We always have a garden to tend, don't we? For every weed we pull there are two seeds to sow!

      Up and others ~ Sharing too!

      My beautiful Faith....my friend, my Muse, thank you for the wonderful comment ..

      wow... would you say my timing was perfect writing this poem and posting just in time for my muse to see... I felt a certain feeling to finish it before this afternoon .. Hmm... the Lord does work in mysterious ways .. I felt so good after writing this .. and I waited for a comment .. and I waited ... (crickets)... then I had to leave to go to work and just got in .. when I clicked on the hub .. it went straight to your reply ..instead of the others before yours ... Hmmm... strange indeed.

      I am so happy that you needed this write Faith .. it must have needed you too... when the lord gave me the words , I felt that you were going to love this as much as I do ..

      Love and special Hug ...

      Michael

      Oh, Dearest Michael,

      This is a beautiful gem here of a poem! The beautiful light that shines so brilliantly in us reflecting His glory.

      I am so blessed by reading this on this day. Thank you dearest Michael for writing such beauty from your heart. I needed to read this this day. I believe God placed this in your heart and you were meant to write it on this very day. He is sweet like that, you know? And thank you for writing this to His glory.

      My notifications stopped this day at 2:48 p.m. for some reason I noticed, but this beauty here popped in before they stopped. And I did not want to wait to comment so late this evening.

      You have caught His eye this day, and I know He is well-pleased, and I now have a smile on my face.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      Bless you real good. In His Love, Faith Reaper
