I wanted to feature this poem by my friend Heather Joyes. Her beautiful story tells us about how God leads us from darkness into the light. Share with Heather your comments. She’d love to hear from you.


Darkness Into Light

Deep in the dark
Where shadows hark,
Lost in sin
He walks.
Too blind to see
The everlasting Light
That belies his plight.
The still small voice,
Calls and convicts
Right to the marrow.
Christ’s love infuses the spirit
Like rain permeates the soil
Before the harrow,
Prepared to bear precious fruit.
Repentant and humbled,
The call is answered
To walk in the Light.
Rejoicing in salvation.
darkness to light
