lantern light

a lot of things, a lot of words. so much hurt and wounded hearts.
what to say, what to do.
God i pray. God i pray for the people who cry and the people who look up to find You; i pray You will take their hand and hold them.
to believe in You is to put my hope in You. to stop worrying about what i can and can't do and look at You, God, and give you my life.
to realize that i don't know anything and to just call Your name and know that You hear me.
to ask for mercy, for forgiveness.
to beg you will hold us, comfort us.

guide us by Your lantern light, O God.

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
pdslm 119:105 KJV

I read something just before, in Hollywood Nobody number three by Lisa Samson. 
I lie down on the pew, moonlight from a nearby window falling over the tip of my shoe. And here's something I'm learning about God: He usually only gives us enough light to make the next step, not enough to illuminate the entire room.
where You go i'll go
where You stay i'll stay
when You move i'll move
i will follow
who You love i'll love
how You serve i'll serve
if this life i lose, i will follow You
chris tomlin, i will follow


  1. Lovely writing and point Emii! (man I wish I could post like this *Sigh*) I just love that verse, song, book quote and what you wrote at the beginning. I am worrying about what I can and can't do. But the future is coming...I just need to focus on this step I'm taking right now. Thanks for this post Emii :) Sierra
    Keep Growing Beautiful♥ (Because You Are!)

  2. Beautiful post! Love all the quotes and verses and your photo! :) Thanks for sharing!

  3. people think that loving God is all about following rules or whatever... but we get to give God everything. EVERYTHING. we don't have to worry about stuff; Jesus promises He'll take it from us. it's the most wonderful thing. He'll take our burdens, our worries, our problems.

    ThankYou Jesus.

    Thanks, Emily and Sierra and Shelley. :)
