Clearer, purer prism
“Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, but instead let there be thanksgiving.” Ephesians 5:4
Several years ago a Sunday school student gave me a beautiful raindrop-shaped prism. I hung it on a clear thread in front of a south window, not sure what to expect. The following morning I was delighted to find sparkling little rainbows dancing around my living room.
The clearer and purer a prism is, the brighter the colors are when the sun shines through it. In our lives, also, God calls us to put aside coarseness and foolishness. He wants us to be pure and clear so that He can shine through us, creating rainbows of light in His name.
I need You, Lord to walk with me,
To hold me tight through all life's storms,
To shelter me and give me strength,
To keep me safe from harm.
But more than that, I want You, Lord,
To live Your life through me.
So like a clear and crystal prism,
I would like to be.
