Follow the Light

Dwelling in darkness,
Overcome with despair,
And a world in need
Of major repair.

Then came the birth
That changed the outlook;
The birth of Jesus
Explained in God’s book.

His story of a Savior
To set us free
And help us be
All we can be.

So get involved
In His story
And celebrate
All His glory.

By being ready always
To follow the Light
And receive the gift
Of a future so bright.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    The poem “Follow the Light” was inspired from a sermon of my pastor Ryan Barnett. The Christmas story begins with people dwelling in darkness; overcome with despair and all hope lost until the birth of Christ. He was born to be our Savior who came to wage war for our freedom. We need only prepare because the King is coming to set us free. We gather to celebrate. We prepare our hearts to be messengers so others will turn their attention to the Light. To become transformed into the likeness of Christ and get ready for Christ’s coming again. He will not be stopped … it’s a guarantee and our Savor will come for all.
