Day 20: Pouring Sunshine

February 2021, the month my ailing heart landed me in hospital for the first round of many tests, leading to a definitive diagnosis eight months later. So often, God has used the sky to remind me that He is the God who turns the darkness of our night into light, by the power of His Word. All we have to do is lift our eyes up to Him, from whom our help comes from.

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

1 John 4:18 ESV

I bless us to gather around the Word of our God. I bless Jesus to lay our heart, our desire produce, bare. I bless the Word to uncover and leave no room. I bless Him to leave behind nothing lifted up, untouched and unattached to Him.

I bless our God to turn the darkness of our night into day, by the power of His Word. I bless us to run, hand in hand with Him, into the light of His Word. I bless our Messiah, Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ to be our portion and pure delight. I bless Him to turn our thoughts of fear and anxiety into affirmations and declarations of His perfect love for us.

Thick black clouds are gath’ring
Even so, I feel my feet
Treading here
Ever closer, ever brighter.

Hand in hand I’m running
His eyes are opening mine
Sunshine pouring
Light there pressing
The darkness away.

“Be not afraid,”
I hear His Voice
“I go before you
My Ray of Light the Truth.

“What they may say
What you may hear
What you may feel
Be still and know: 
Beloved, You are Mine.

“Go where I send you
Speak what I give you
Still where I ask you
I am Your Light
Awakening freedom.

“Watch the darkness fleeing
Watch my children coming
Knees there bowing
My Name they’re calling.”

Thick black clouds are gath’ring
Even so, I feel my feet
Treading here
Ever closer, ever brighter.

Hand in hand I’m running
His eyes are opening mine
Sunshine pouring
Light there pressing
Darkness full away.
