I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Hope in a Culture of Darkness

So much darkness in the culture and in lives,
So many shadows of of the night,
Emptiness, arrogance, rationalization and pride
Obscure God’s path of light.

Instead of desiring the path of hope and right,
The culture clings to self-indulgence,
Telling itself pretty lies
To cover up the truth that deep inside and
Away from Jesus Christ,
We are poor in spirit,
Angry, miserable and blind.

Oh Lord, I pray Your transforming might
Enters in so all may find
In You, the way, the truth and life
That changes hearts and minds,
From deepest despair and darkest night
To hope and healing, love and light.
