The days come, the days go and still I remain
the same, ever and always.
Laughter, tears, I Am there
when you spill them all
as you mourn, as you rejoice
never alone are you.
I strengthen your legs to stand
and I, yes I, weaken those legs so you fall into Me.
I give you My heart
will you carry it as tenderly as I do yours?
Will you allow Me to teach you to see Me
as well as I see you?
Transformed, bearing My mark
will you walk as light, as love?
Shine. Breathe Me in and shine.
Here's another way to put it: You're here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We're going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don't think I'm going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I'm putting you on a light stand. Now that I've put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine!
