Lord of light … #pauseforAdvent

Lord of light,
transform the darkness of my heart,
the apathy in my veins,
the busyness of my mind,
the worries creating a heavy blanket –
distorting my ability to see.

Lord of light,
illuminate the shady corners of my life
the murkiness of my thoughts,
the muddy tendencies of selfishness –
so easy to see and to forget
that which you want me to remember.

Lord of light,
bring healing to the wounds of hurts long past,
the scars of words and actions,
the sting of insecurities,
the clouded sadnesses
that no one else can understand

Transform; illuminate; heal,
that I may better bring
your light to the world.
