Beauty of Lighthouses

060

Seems like a lot of people are fascinated with the beauty of lighthouses. Maybe its the scenery sounding the lighthouses or the symbol of what they represent. Lighthouses are one thing that the whole world has in common. From Brazil to America, from Ontario to Croatia, one can find a lighthouse sitting amongst the cliffs of the ocean.

There are varieties of lighthouses; some beautiful and stand out, while others may be withered from age. One thing they all have in common is that they shed a light so bright that it lights up the night sky. Lighthouses not only help with navigation to the right path, but they mark out the dangerous conditions to sailors traveling the seas.

If you look at a Christian as a lighthouse, they may seem not quite as appealing to some, but to others they stand out gleaming forth a luminous light of knowledge and truth. They don’t seem to move but are always there shedding forth their beaming light to admonish weary sailors toward a clear and easy path. They weather the storms and sometimes are surrounded by tumultuous currents and sheets of ice, but they still stand ready to shed forth their light without wavering.  Without lighthouses, this earth would not have lights to guide us through the stormy tides toward a safe and loving place of protection, in the arms of Jesus Christ.

There’s a lighthouse on the hillside
That overlooks the sea
When I’m tossed it sends out a light
That I might see
And the light that shines in darkness now
Will safely lead me o’er
If it wasn’t for the lighthouse
My ship would be no more

It seems that everybody about us says
Tear that old lighthouse down
The big ships just don’t pass this way anymore
So there’s no use in standing around
Then my mind goes back to that one dark, stormy night
When just in time, I saw the light
Yes, it was the light form that old lighthouse
That stands up there on the hill

And I thank God for the lighthouse
I owe my life to Him
Jesus is the Lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin
He has shown a light around me
That I might clearly see
If it wasn’t for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be?

I thank God for the lighthouse
I owe my life to Him
Jesus is the Lighthouse
And from the rocks of sin
He has shown a light around me
That I might clearly see
If it wasn’t for the lighthouse
Tell me where would this ship be?
