Our Hope

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

For the world can be
A corrupted place
Like a cancer
On the human race.

Awful relationships,
Neighbor against neighbor,
Child against parents,
Much to belabor.

But with the Light,
Old ways are wiped clean
And new improved ways
Come onto the scene.

Bringing more hope,
Optimism,
More believers,
Less atheism.

Bringing success
Over sorrows,
Providing for needs,
Brightening tomorrows.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    Inspired after reading Micah 7, this poem gives hope because even if things are at their worst, the change process starts and the old ways are wiped clean so that the new improved ones can develop. This day with God, gain more optimism and hope because of what the Light … Jesus Christ has done on the cross.
