In a world turned upside down, He is the light

And as if He could read all the questions she had, He gently whispered to her, “I’ll take care of mom and dad.”

Then He looked down to earth, the world far below. He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe.

Then He closed His eyes and He outstretched out His hand, “Let my power and presence re-enter this land!”

“May this country be delivered from the hands of fools. I’m taking back my nation, I’m taking back my schools!”

Then He and the children stood up without a sound. “Come now my children, let me show you around.”

Excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran; all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.

And I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight, “In the midst of this darkness, “I AM STILL THE LIGHT.”
