music monday// light up the sky

sometimes we go through some things, and we yearn for a sign from God to assure us that we are really not alone. and sometimes this yearning is a whisper in prayer, or a thought running round in our minds, hoping that He will do something, give us some sign that He is with us.
and the truth is, He is always with us. even if we don't see the 'sign' we ask for. He is as sure as the sun. He is the sunshine in your hair, the wispy cloud in the sky, the cool, afternoon breeze softly touching your face. God is everywhere. His beautiful creation testify that He is. something cannot come out of nothing, and creation attest to this that He is the Creator, He is the very breath within us. and He is always with us.

i've always loved this song. enjoy!

light up the sky~ the afters
when i'm feeling all alone, with so far to go,
the signs are no where on this road, guiding me home,
when the night is closing in, is falling on my skin
oh, God will You come close.

light, light, light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me You are with me
i, i, i can't deny, no, i can't deny that You are right here with me
You've opened my eyes, so i can see You all around me
You light, light, light up the sky, 
You light up the sky to show me, that You are with me

when stars are hiding in the clouds, i don't feel them shining
when i can't see beyond my doubt, the silver lining
when i've almost reached the end,
like a flood You're rushing in. Your love is rushing in..

so i run straight into Your arms,
You're the bright morning sun
to show Your love there's nothing You won't do.

have i not commanded you? be strong and courageous. do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." joshua 1:9

"...its truth is seen in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing and the true Light is already shining." 1 john 2:8

"when Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, 'I am the light of the world. whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." john 8:12

"the Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall i fear? the Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall i be afraid?" psalm 27:1

"those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame." psalm 34:5

"i lift up my eyes to the mountains- where does my help come from? my help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth." psalm 121:1-2

"...and surely I (Jesus) am with you always, to the very end of the age." matthew 28:20

He is not just with you, empathizing with you, but He is actively involved in weaving your pain and heartache into something beautiful. be encouraged, friend.
