Embracing the Light

Oil Slick photo showing light and darkness

Power of darkness is broken

Broken are the heavy chains

Chains that kept me accepting darkness

Darkness that now no longer remains

God in rich mercy sent His Son to deliver

Deliver me from the power of darkness

Darkness flees the embracing light

Light of the Kingdom I now possess

Child of God

As I ride the World’s Roller Coaster,
Each day offers different emotions.
One day I am “King of the Hill”,
The next I find myself at the “Bottom of the Barrel”,
Often I feel like I am “The Man in the Middle”.
But when each day’s ride is over,
I make time to talk with my Father,
And His words bring me comfort.
I find my true identity
In the truth of His words.
I am a Child of the King,
But His Kingdom is not of this world.
