The Little Flame

Sometimes, I lay in bed

and in the quietness of my mind

I see a flame.

It’s a tiny flame, surrounded by darkness.

Isolated.

I can gauge the strength of my spirit from this flame.

I remember, when I felt hopeless, that flame was small and flickering out

barely holding on.

Now, as I hold on dearly to the truth of my heart,

the flame is slowly growing.

The spirit needs nourishment just like our bodies.

It needs wood or good quality thoughts, ideas and beliefs

to grow big and strong.

You can’t stop feeding it. A fire needs constant tending.

But that fire protects you from the wild beasts,

keeps you warm

and enables you to see your environment.

The fire can help you make food,

as the fire is also a tool.

That inner flame inside of you, keeps you alive.

It’s a tool to be used.

When you keep that tool sharp, it can produce many useful things.

Don’t let your inner flame go out.

This Little Light Of Mine Hymn

This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Won’t let Satan blow it out.
I’m gonna let it shine.
Won’t let Satan blow it out.
I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Let it shine til Jesus comes.
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine til Jesus comes.
I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Hide it under a bushel – NO!
I’m gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel – NO!
I’m gonna let it shine, Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Let it shine over the whole wide world,
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine over the whole wide world,

I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
