Hope in the Light


He is my sustenance.

He is my light.

There is hope in my heart.

He can make the darkness bright.


The nights seem so long,

And are hard to go through.

Rest in the assurance,

That the light shall come too.


The grace of God’s favor,

Is waiting to shine on you each day.

Start your day in thanksgiving,

As you go to Him and pray.


Trust in God’s perfect love.

Look for His Holy Face.

Feel the showers of His mercy,

And the abundance of His grace.


Give your time to others,

And the blessing will flow back to you.

It may be their day of blessing.

Your day will come too.


Give because you love others,

Not for what you can get back.

Give because you represent God.

In Him there is no lack.


Your needs will be covered,

As you help others in need.

God is watching your steps,

He is watching your every deed.


He is your sustenance.

He is your light.

You will have hope in your heart.

He will make the darkness bright.


TRW 6-01-17


Deuteronomy 15:10


Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.


There is joy in giving because there is joy in God. God is the greatest giver of all because He is perfect love. Giving is a way to show love. Giving is not only of things, but more importantly of your time. A value cannot be placed on time. We can never get time back, so when we give of our time, it is not taken lightly by God. Take time to pay attention to a child. Take time to listen to a friend. Take time to pray for others. Give of your finances. Tithe first and then pay bills. Always be aware that God may place someone in your life, who He wants you to bless. Thank God for those who bless you as you walk through life. Thank Him for faithful friends and family that help you in your daily walk. Ask Him to show you opportunities to be like Him and to share His love with others. His light will shine upon you as you do His will.  He is the Way, the Truth and the Light.
