This is one of my very favorite songs to sing in church. Okay – I truly like so many that it is not fair to say I have favorites but this one struck something in my heart today.
I thought about all those I know. Those who have been struggling under a load. Those whose worlds have seemed dim or have recently gotten dimmer from loss of a loved one. Those whose bright blue, sun-lit skies have been darkened for whatever reasons.
Whatever had made your worlds seem less bright, I want to offer you the encouragement from the words of this hymn. The second verse is what got my attention so that is what I am sharing with you.
