7.22.2020 – “Light of a Clear Blue Morning”

When the battle is raging, and we begin to find ourselves growing weary, and we look around and see no light in sight…

We can suddenly find ourselves in the place of almost giving up and losing hope.

I’ve been there a time or two, have you?

But just when I find myself getting to this place of “almost giving up” and “almost giving in” and “almost losing my grip on hope”…

… just when I have to say, “God, I’m losing hope, I’m growing weary, I’m at the edge…. but I am choosing to keep on trusting You with everything that I’ve got!

This is often the place where the breakthrough comes. ☀️

I’m learning to recognize this in my life. ☀️ I know He’s taken me through “this lesson” a time or two so that I can learn to remember His faithfulness, to learn to keep trusting and to keep hoping in hard times as they come.

And whenever I feel all of this “stuff”… I know to just keep on keeping on, because I’ve learned that the breakthrough is just right around the corner.

I know that, as a child of God, the light of Jesus is just about to break through in my dark situation.

But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is Him. He is like a tree planted by the waters that sends out its roots toward the stream. It does not fear when the heat comes, and its leaves are always green. It does not worry in a year of drought, nor does it cease to produce fruit.…” —Jeremiah 17:7-8

Yesterday, somehow I came to this song written by Dolly Parton, performed by the Wailin’ Jennys. I thought it was fitting for this day…

Light of a Clear Blue Morning

Written by Dolly Parton, performed by Wailin’ Jennys

It’s been a long dark night
And I’ve been a waitin’ for the morning
It’s been a long hard fight
But I see a brand new day a dawning
I’ve been looking for the sunshine
You know I ain’t seen it in so long
But everything’s gonna work out just fine
And everything’s gonna be all right
That’s been all wrong’

Cause I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of a brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
Oh, and everything’s gonna be all right
It’s gonna be okay

It’s been a long long time
Since I’ve known the taste of freedom
And those clinging vines
That had me bound, well I don’t need ’em
Oh, I’ve been like a captured eagle, you know an eagle’s born to fly
Now that I have won my freedom, like an eagle I am eager for the sky

And I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
Oh, and everything’s gonna be all right
It’s gonna be okay

And I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of a brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
Ooh and everything’s gonna be all right
Everything’s gonna be all right
Everything’s gonna be all right
It’s gonna be okay

Thank You, Lord. ☀️ You’re so good to remind us of Your faithfulness.
