When your lamp begins to dull,
before it grows cold and dim
look for God in the darkness
and reignite, your trust in Him.
When your lamp looses its luster,
before it fades into the night
look for God in the shadows
and put your faith, back in His light.
When your lamp starts to flicker,
before it goes completely out
look for God in the flutter
and surrender to Him, all your doubt.
When your lamp is running low,
before it goes bone-dry
look for God in the flickering
and He will draw you, to Him nigh.
When your lamp barely shines,
before it loses its brilliance
look for God in the last glimmers
and rekindle for Him, your resilience!
“For thou art my lamp, O Lord:
and the Lord will lighten my darkness.”
King James Version
Deborah Ann Belka
