Brighter Day

© by Tom Janicik

In the wake of dawn
The sun shines bright
Upon my sleepy eyes
Wondering what trials this day will bring

Shall I choose the seemingly attractive
Yet darker abyss
Or steer towards the challenging
Yet brighter path to glory

Struggling between
My own self-interests
Versus submitting
To pure obedience

Today’s choice
Is made from an eternal perspective
And the Holy Spirit fills
My heart and soul

I ask my Heavenly Father
To bless this day
So that I will honor and serve Him
Like His faithful son, Jesus Christ

As the sun sets
And its after glow fades away
The moon rises and shines
Softly on my face

I lie in a restful peace
Feeling His warm presence
Knowing His overwhelming love
Will never end

John 1:4-5 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. NKJV
