capturing creation’s attention
with the vivid colours of your presence
You transform the dull spaces
and the dark corners of the world
so that they shine with Your glory.
Conversations come alive
when encouraged by Your bright spirit
bold steps are taken
to offer friendship and encouragement.
Loneliness is cast aside
as the potential of participating in relationships
of compassion and trust
are offered within Your vibrant community.
With Your grace
poured into all of life,
the wonder of possibility
casts a rainbow over all
that had been thought abandoned or lost.
Finding us hiding our faces,
our cooried into corners,
Lord of light,
You shine into all that we seek to hid from You.
Remembering the dark moments
of the journey to this morning,
there are times and emotions
that are tinged with the greys and blacks
of doom and anger
that we would not wish You to see.
Yet with flickering interest
You open up each chapter
of our disappointment;
the angry words,
the resentful thoughts;
and the blissful ignorance.
Then leading our thoughts,
You offer us a new way to live in Your presence.
forgiven by Your
we are transformed beyond our recognition.
You invite us to walk in Your colour and light
and to carry this moment of change
into the lives of others,
that they might meet Your live
in Christ’s presence within us.
