City on the Hill

Why do we hurt those we love most?

The answer is found in a boast.

Our strength and silence is our pride,

As day by day we choose to hide.

Our shallow conversations fail –

Just empty words both cold and stale.

So why not just take off the mask,

And in the Sonlight choose to bask?

You never know when life will end,

So find yourself some loving friends.

There is a reason we’re all here –

Embrace this season without fear.

Let’s live this life so full of love,

That there’s no doubt it’s from above.

Let’s be a light upon a hill;

With salt let’s give this world its fill.

As witnesses we will grow strong,

Despite the fact the days grow long.

For we possess eternal hope,

And it shall be our safety rope.

A watchful eye set on the sky,

Reminds us that the end draws nigh.

So be alert and do discern,

Await the day of His return.

And do your part to guard your heart;

Don’t let this world tear it apart.

Let’s choose to be all we can be,

For Christ who saved both you and me.

Verse Of The Week:

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. – Matthew 5:13-16

(Disclaimer: The great depths of my sorrow can only be justly compared to the impressive heights of my joy. If you stay tuned in long enough you’ll begin to see the silver ray of hope in even the darkest of my reflections.)
