Clear Blue

Sunrise by Brandon Heath
You wanna sound off you can’t find the words to
Nothin‘ makes sense in the way that it used to
Can’t find the plus in the positive thinking
The well’s run dry and you’re not done drinking

Clouds start comin‘ and the sky will fall
Clock stares back from the bedroom wall
Now you’re breathin‘ just to make it through the night

All you need is a sunrise
Just a moment of dawn
If you’re lost in the twilight
Close your eyes and move on
When you’re tired in the waiting
Even though it’s gonna take you
A little more time
Just a little more time the sun’s gonna find you

Holding your days like a stack of paper
Then you’re chasing the wind as the pages scatter
You can save a few but you can’t get ’em all back
So get out fast with your heart in tact

Find yourself on the very edge
Lying awake in an empty bed
Now you’re breathin‘ just to make it through the night

All you need is a sunrise
Just a moment of dawn
If you’re lost in the twilight
Close your eyes and move on
When you’re tired in the waiting
Even though it’s gonna take you
A little more time
Just a little more time the sun’s gonna find you

Looking out on a clear blue Iowa sky without a cloud in sight, I’m reminded once again that there’s always hope for a sunrise…always hope.

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you…The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.” Isaiah 60: 1, 19-20

I don’t know your past hurts, present sorrows, or future fears…but I do know there is always hope…He who is calling you is faithful…
