Light Inside My Heart

Sometimes, there is a cloud that hangs over me
Blocking the light of the joy I am meant to walk in
The cloud robs me of the strength for each day
Until I push it away
Not letting it stay
And darken a day that's meant to be bright
I'll push it far away and if it tries to come back
I will turn the other way and
Keep walking in the light I am meant to walk in 
The Light that came into the world
Is the Light inside my heart

John 14:26
I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.

Sometimes, that dark, hovering cloud is an attack of worry, fear, anxiety, and/or doubt, and sometimes it is looking at troubling circumstances through my own eyes instead of eyes of faith and what God can do.

The cloud that tries to rob us of our joy, that tries to weaken our faith – forces us to make a significant choice. Will we choose to stay under the cloud? Or, will we wisely decide to step out and push it away? We need to remind ourselves of the Light inside our heart as believers and children of God.

When this cloud comes over me, and when it comes over you, I pray we will make the wise choice, and use the strength of our faith to step out from under its darkness and step into the light of what God has for us. He is that Light and He wants to shine through us.

For this to happen, the joy robbing cloud has got to go. I want my light to shine! 

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
