Apologies for the delayed posting on this one! Today we have a guest post from Andrea, who operates her own blog as well as co-authors one with her brother. Both will be linked down below! I am super-excited for this, as Andrea will be contributing a post every first Saturday of the month either in the form of a poetic work or some other form of devotional/thought-provoking post pertaining to Christianity. Enjoy this great poem and be sure to check out her blogs and her book!

glass-heart

There is Light

And there is Darkness

And we are glass.

 

Purified

So Day can shine through us

Illuminating hearts,

Changing lives.

 

Or clouded

So only Night can glare

Shriveling flowers,

Darkening worlds.

 

We may be warped by our choices

Whether Light

Whether Darkness

Until we can no longer change sides.

Set for good

Of locked on evil

Until

We

Break

And the pieces still reflect an every growing gloom.

 

But there is mercy

For the Glassmaker knows

When what passes through us is not ours,

And hating the darkness,

He still does not hate our form,

Our crystalline hearts.

He still wishes

To save us

From ourselves.

 

There is Light

And there is Darkness

And we are glass.

 

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. 1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)
