I Held A Candle Flame

This is an old poem, from between 2017 and 2019, and it’s rather short for a blog post, but perhaps it’s still worth a read 🙂


I held a little candle flame,

Right in my hand; no wax or wick,

Just a glowing flicker.

It was a gift from God,

Given to me when I was saved

To help spread His light.

I tucked it away deep inside,

Afraid that it would go out in the winds of this world.

I knew that was wrong,

I should have let it shine unhindered.

That little flame nearly went out,


I brought it out only just in time,

And now it burns ever brighter.

God keeps it lit as I work to spread His light.

I hold a little candle flame,

Perhaps, I can use it to kindle the Lord’s fire in others.


“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.” Mathew 5:14 (KJV)
