My Lamp

There's a darkness in me, I'm sorry to say. It slipped in when I was a little girl, alone and damaged. But I'm happy to say, there's a Light in me also. And the Light in me is greater than the darkness. Praise God! "O Lord, You are my Lamp. The Lord lights up my darkness", II Samuel 22:29.


  1. Amen! The chorus of this song is playing in my head as I read your post:

    This spark is shot to the heart
    You are the hope that leads me out of the dark
    You let Your love shine down
    So that the world could see
    You put the light in me -
    The Light In Me by Brandon Heath

    God bless you sister!

  2. There is indeed light in you and you spread that beautiful light to those around you Peggy! God bless.

  3. If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
    even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
    If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
    even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.
    Psalm 139:9-12

    As you bask in His light, I pray that darkness becomes His abode.

    I so appreciate your candor; and I am so sorry that your youth was so badly marred by this hurtful thing.

    Huge hug.

  4. The light chases away the darkness. We just have to remember to always keep that light on my friend.
    You are a good lamp-carrier...thanks for that Peggy!

  5. Just dropped in to see how you're doing? Praying this is a summer of light & love, new memories & restful days.

    More hugs,
