LET ME BE A LIGHT


 LET ME BE A LIGHT © 2009 Pashena T. Casimire


Several years ago I was part of a book club that met every Saturday morning. The first book we read was You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. Each Saturday was a well-spring of new ideas and our ability to create grew immensely. Two of us started businesses [www.themegodsees.org and www.deval-designs.com] as a result of opening ourselves up to the omnipotent presence of God. During this time Holy Spirit started downloading songs to me and we often started our book club sessions with one of the songs. LET ME BE A LIGHT is a very simple song with simple request to God. The lyrics are as follows:

Chorus: 
LET ME BE A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD. LET YOUR RADIATING LIGHT SHINE SO EVER BRIGHT FOR ALL TO SEE.

Verse I: 
I BELONG TO YOU AND I AM SET APART, YET MY FLESH DESIRES TO FLEE FROM THE SAFETY OF YOUR LIGHT AND YOUR LOVE.


Chorus:
LET ME BE A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD. LET YOUR RADIATING LIGHT SHINE SO EVER BRIGHT FOR ALL TO SEE.


Verse II:
SOME DAYS I'M  SO ALONE. MY MIND IS IN CONTROL. I TRY TO QUIET MY MIND, YET MY RACING THOUGHTS CONSUME MY WHOLE BEING.

Chorus:
LET ME BE A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD. LET YOUR RADIATING LIGHT SHINE SO EVER BRIGHT FOR ALL TO SEE.

Verse III:
I RECONNECT TO YOU. THE ALL-SUFFICIENT GOD. IN THIS SPACE I'M SAFE, HIDDEN FROM THE CARES OF THIS WORLD.

CHORUS:
LET ME BE A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD. LET YOUR RADIATING LIGHT SHINE SO EVER BRIGHT FOR ALL TO SEE.

Be a light today in the midst of any darkness.

  1. I thank God for that time. Because we were open to the move of God, we were blessed with the presence of Holy Spirit and creative ideas are still being manifested (this blog is evidence). Let Me Be A Light was our way of surrendering to God's will(He must INCREASE, while we decreased).
