The light within

After Philippians 2:12-18

The light within is
not a natural thing, or
a physical phenomenon,
but one deliberately
inserted and planted,
lit from without to light
from within, and so it
needs nurturing and care,
feeding and stimulation.
It is a light that must be
worked out in fear, trembling,
its purpose not warmth
for the lightbearer but
illumination in the darkness
for finding the way home.
The light is implanted
so that others may see.
