A New Day

Darkness overwhelms me / hide my face, for the night is long / Never losing hope / As I await Your coming dawn. / There – Light breaks forth ahead

Darkness overwhelms me

I hide my face, for the night is long

Never losing hope

As I await Your coming dawn.

There – Light breaks forth ahead

Bringing beauty to the sky

My gaze remains unwavering

On Your ever-faithful rise.

My sun, my light, my life

You watch as I dance in Your grace

Following wherever You lead

My eyes ever upon Your face.

For You, I bloom and grow

In this gift of a beautiful day

And as darkness approaches with another night,

I will never be afraid.

Tomorrow brings a new day.

‘Weeping may stay through the night,
but joy comes in the morning.’
Psalm 30:5

About the Author

Hello, my name is Sarah Camille Soltani Icely. I have been an artist since I can remember; always drawing and painting in my free time. Once I knew how to write, I began to journal and soon found a passion for poetry. I have always loved and believed in Jesus, but it wasn’t until my late teens/early twenties that I truly started to know Holy Spirit. This is where I say my true walk with God began. 
After this time, I began to hear the Spirit through my paintings, and the things I heard and felt in these times later became the poems I wrote to take people deeper into the meaning of each art piece. Painting is how I worship my Creator; Not only because He is the one who blessed me with these gifts, but because He is the love of my life; the one who gives me strength in every storm I face. In these times of painting and writing, where He speaks to me so deeply, my biggest hope is that my art can be used to bring others the same encouragement, faith, hope, truth, and love that this time with Him brings to me.
