He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.
- John 3:30
I was brilliant and white and perfectly smooth
tapered to perfection with a wick standing tall and proud
Never could I have guessed how being lit would change me
Drips of grief
Softening of tears
I disappear beneath the pain
the flame brings
I melt in sorrow
as my colors fade
and blend with the soot
of heartfelt offerings
Only the best for You
As I gather into a shapeless puddle
my only prayer is that I will still diffuse a pleasing fragrance
That the nub that I am
can still shine Your light
Light me up, Lord. Help me to burn until I am nothing and You are all. In Jesus' Name, Amen...
