What the Bible says about light and seed

The True Light "In him, (the Lord Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world,…the world didn’t recognize him." John 1:4,9.

The Good Seed and the Weeds “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Matthew 13:24,25.

THE WOUNDS OF MY FRIEND JESUS

THE WOUNDS OF MY FRIEND JESUS
Written and posted by Jean-Louis http://theligthseed.blogspot.com 

"Better is an open rebuke than hidden love.
Faithful are the wounds of a friend."
Proverbs 27: 5,6.

To my friend Terry

Oh, Jesus my very best friend
Your love for me has no end
You prove it to me when
you open up a festering wound
with the sharp edge of your sWord
then wash it clean to make me holy,
without stain, wrinkle or blemish
cleansing me with the pure water of your Word.


When I gaze upon your face
 Eternity fills my soul’s empty space
Earthly sorrow becomes a gain
When grace and truth meet up close
And righteousness and peace kiss each other
I better understand your grand purpose
In the light of the truth of your Word.

Slowly, the needle point, holy piercing hurts
In your loving hand I trust
Stitches and knots, compassion’s handiwork
The ugly tear mending
With the painful truth of your Word.

The wounds you give me, gratefully I receive
My hopes fulfilled, your promises kept,
I rest in you, I need not fret
The wings of your wind bring healing
My fragmented life becomes whole and authentic
When I believe the eternal truth of your Word.


Your wounds were left open
But mine gently closed without blame
You poured on them the balm of Gilead
To cover up sin’s shame
With the healing truth of your Word.

I, like Ephraim was deceived
Without any hope of being free
In your mercy Father, you sent your word
With a command my chains you broke
Opening the door of freedom forever
With the powerful truth of your Word.

My head you anoint with your oil
Now sorrow turns into great joy
Mourning into dancing, darkness into light
The spirit of heaviness alight
All these hidden treasures are found
With the key you give to all your children
Who love and keep the truth of your Word.

Gen 32: 31; Deut 32:39;  Psalm 38:1,2,5;  85:10,11; 119:67-71; Prov: 27:5,6; Jeremias 8:21,22;10:19,20; 14:19; 15:18,19; Hosea 6:1
