Only in the darkness can you see the stars


“Only in the darkness can you see the stars”. – Martin Luther King Jr.

From experience, I know that we all experience struggles and challenges in life, and at times we may feel like giving up, that all hope is lost.  Yet, all we have to do is look up and see the stars through the darkness.

“Jesus Christ is the light that keeps shining in the darkness. True light and life comes only through faith in Him. Expect to receive from God more than you ask or imagine as the Holy Spirit gives you understanding and brings light into your life.”[1]

Lord, the Light of Your Love is shining,
In the midst of the darkness shining,
Jesus, Light of the World, shine upon us,
Set us free by the truth You now bring us,
Shine on me. Shine on me.

Shine, Jesus shine,
Fill this land with the Father’s glory.
Blaze, Spirit blaze,
Set our hearts on fire.
Flow, river flow,
Flood the nations with grace and mercy.
Send forth Your word,
Lord and let there be light.

Lord I come to Your awesome presence,
From the shadows into Your radiance.
By the blood I may enter Your brightness,
Search me, try me, consume all my darkness.
Shine on me. Shine on me.

As we gaze on Your kindly brightness.
So our faces display Your likeness.
Ever changing from glory to glory,
Mirrored here may our lives tell Your story.
Shine on me. Shine on me.

– Song lyrics “Shine Jesus Shine”,   Cliff Richard
