Where is Your Light?

If therefore thy whole body be full of light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of light, as when the lamp with its bright shining doth give thee light.

Luke 11:36 (ASV) 
 

Where is your light?
Is it hidden under a basket
or has it become
subject
to doubt?
Does it fade in radiance
when deep shadows
converge in dark alleys?

Where is your light?
Does it glow
in the face of an enemy
or is it visible only to allies?
Are you a candle
flickering in the breeze?
Is your light struggling
to stay lit?

He is the light of the world.
He bathes us
in His radiance
that we might touch
the untouchable
and give strength to the weak.

So where is your light?
Is it hidden by sin
or complacency?
Is the world around you
a bit darker
because you decided,
today,
not to shine?
