Drenched in Sunshine

 I spend my nights holding back my fears,
Thinking about all of those poor souls
Who are lost in indecision, depression, and gloom.
The empty idols of money, power, and sexual desires,
Hide the real truth from their dissonant consciences.
The conflict is in the choice to believe in God or not.
Devil inspired temptations lead people into mental obscurity,
Where the compromise seems to be simple but deadly,
"If it feels good, do it, and if it hurts, just avoid it."
Men search for a Rapunzel who spins straw into gold
Women hope for a husband with the touch of Midas,
But there is no king Midas and no lady Rapunzel.
They are just fairy tales and are not part of reality.
Wishful thinking alone cannot make dreams come true.
The way, the truth, and the life of Jesus Christ is the treasure.
He lives in the hearts of each and every person of good will
That loves Almighty God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth,
With their whole heart, and soul, and mind...AND,
Who loves their fellow human beings without exception.
Sunshine lives within me and I am drenched in spiritual sunlight.
Nothing's more beautiful under the sun than to be with the Son!
