Shine On Me

I’ve lost control. I am undone
Can’t fight the fight you already won

I put my faith in you alone
My God, my strength. Your light has shone

Shine on me to show me who I am
Shine on me to show my heart to me
Shine on me I do not know myself
Let me see who I should be

I lift my hands to give you praise
I cry Oh, Lord I need your grace

The light has come. The light has come
Into my heart. He overcomes
In all my sorrow and my shame
I fully trust in Jesus name

Shine on me to show me who I am
Shine on me to show my heart to me
Shine on me I do not know myself
Let me see who I should be

Shine, Jesus, shine
Search my heart, oh God
Shine Jesus, shine
Show me who I am

I love to walk early in the morning. It is quiet, there are no cars around and no one else is walking or running on the bike path on town. I can walk, raising my hands and singing along with my worship music and no one will hear me except God. It’s my quiet time alone with Him. Often this is when He speaks to me the words I put in my songs and poems. Other times, he speaks to me when I first get up in the morning. When the light hits my eyes and dispels the darkness in my bedroom, I am ready to sit down on my computer and type out His words. It is at this time I realize He has knees again brought the light of His Word into my heart and searched me. He ahs brought me to my knees once again as he has shown me who I really am. I am a sinner standing before the God of the universe, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. I have no right to be in His court because I have been walking in darkness. His court is full if light. There are no shadows, which seems odd to me. But then I realize that the shadows of my past sins are gone. They are no more. He has taken them away and I am standing in His pure light. There is no darkness at all. So I lift my hands to worship Him because he has brought me out of the darkness into His glorious light. I am a free man!

1 John 1:7 King James Version
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
