SONSHINE August 2023

The word SUMMER usually brings memories of vacations and long, warm days, but living again near the coast of California brings a different memory to my mind. I SEE a little girl running between rows of freshly washed, white sheets that hang neatly from a clothes line. I hear the soft sound of my Grandmother’s voice:

“Sing the clouds away; night will turn to day. If you sing and smile and pray…you’ll drive the clouds away!”

I really thought because she prayed those gloomy clouds away, the sun would shine and dry our clothes!

As years went by, I discovered she was singing a spiritual truth that could help me through life. God has “Sunshine” for us in His Son, Jesus. He is the WORD! Clouds of disappointment and fear may cover our days and hide JOY and HOPE from our hearts. But we can learn to sing and pray God’s Promises, and EXPECT Him to drive the clouds away! “If you sing and smile and pray… Jesus will drive the clouds away!”                

“Things that are impossible with men are possible with God.” Luke18:27

“Your lovingkindness, O Lord, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.  Psalm 36:5
