“Sunlounger on Seashore” by worradmu

“You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning;

my God turns my darkness into light.” Psalm 18:28


Clouds set in,

Blue gives way to gray:

Such is the scene

On this winter day.


Yet gray in my heart

I do not feel,

For the presence of God

Is vibrant and real.


Should the clouds loom

High in the sky,

I feel Son-shine of Jesus

To Whom I am nigh.


His rays shine brilliantly

In and through my soul;

His warmth envelops me,

Making me whole.


So today and every day

I feel it is spring,

As Son-shine never ceases

From Jesus, my King.


While snow covers the earth,

Flowers in my heart grow;

Birds sing of summertime

When on His way I go.


His warmth and light

Never cease to warm me;

Indeed He is the Sun

For all eternity.


Sweet joy and Son-shine

Forever I feel,

For God’s presence

Is vibrant and real.


Yes, although clouds come,

Although the sky is gray,

Eternal summertime I know

When I follow His way!

    Caroline, thank you for the very beautiful poem.
    I really enjoyed reading and needed to hear it.
    With over a foot of snow and below zero temperatures.
    I am going to remind myself of Son-shine.

    Jesus never abandons me.

    God bless you!
