Nobody can put out that light of the fire inside of you,
Your conscience will never seek to undermine you,
For you have given authority to the keeper of your soul
And not those that flock temporarily around you.
Your worth lies more in the strength of your faith,
Your joy doesn’t flicker one bit nor fade,
It flows from within and keeps overflowing outwardly and generously,
From that spring of life-giving waters that you chose to harness within you.
Walking in self-worth and self-assurance
Took many a battle that you fought quietly within the walls you built around you,
Fighting those wars inside your head,
Equipped with your spiritual armour,
Nothing could stand against the affirmations
that had long been engraved deep inside you.
When the whole world, even friend and kin,
seemingly turned against you,
When you felt cornered out and exiled even in your own space,
Little did you know then, that your hope and faith is actually the only reason you came through,
Unscathed and unburdened,
Stronger than ever before,
Left and Immersed in nothing but that Grace,
That found you right there,
In the bitter depths of your soul.
There was, is and will always be that light inside of you,
You may not perceive it’s greatness when all that you actually see is that blinding tunnel-view,
The light so faint yet almost right near you;
At that moment there are countless ways to get there to it,
Look straight ahead and find your resources,
Pick up that positivity, immerse yourself in His words of truth,
And fight those demons of fear, insufficiency, guilt and unworthiness with your spiritual gear,
For only then can you run the race with perseverance towards your goal.
As seen before in your periods of darkness,
He never failed to lead you towards His light,
He’s been ever-faithful,
He’s done it countless times before, in the smallest of ways
With every minute detail taken care of,
Do you now doubt that He would ever leave you?
As long as His Spirit of truth reigns in your life,
You’ve got nothing to fear,
You’ve found the lover of your soul,
The tamer of your fears,
The constant ignition to your joy, love and peace,
Which no mere being can ever prove to substitute.
There’s a reason you’ve got that fire burning inside of you,
For you’re a dear Child of God,
And nobody, absolutely nobody can ever
take that right away from you.
