I Left the Light On

I love that I can meet with You,
Within my humble home,
And as I bow and pray to You,
I need no steepled dome.
I only need a tiny space
Where I can find Your presence
Where I can bring my heart to rest,
Within Your calming essence.
And when I turned that tiny space
Into Your Holy Ground,
I meet with You throughout the day
Your heart, my only sound.
It has a chair, and Your Word
Upon a tiny table,
And a little lamp to light the dark,
These Are my only staples.
Today I left the light on Lord,
To shatter all the dark,
To welcome You into my home,
As You light up my heart.

With Love to Jesus

Thanks for that beautiful poem. Isn't it wonderful
how God caresses us with simple sweetness so
we can live in simplicity joyfully always in Him.
