I seek no other sunshine, than the sunshine of his face

Today was a long day. I really dislike working on sundays, because it turns what should be a day of rest into the most tiring day of the week (with getting up early and staying up late). But that’s where I am right now, and my job involves serving people’s most basic needs.

I’m coming to the time of year when I crave sunshine. And I mean really crave. Not the bright, white light reflecting off of the snow and clouds – but golden rays of sunshine. Warm, beautiful light on my face would make me extraordinarily happy. I was thinking today about how the sun is always there, even on the crappiest gloomiest day. It’s just right behind the clouds.

And that’s how it is with God (that wasn’t supposed to sound that cheesy, but ah well). I feel far away from him, I feel like he’s not there. But he is always there right behind the clouds – it’s only my perception that changes. He will never leave me, nor forsake me.

 

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
