Psalm 119:105-112 New International Version (NIV)
105 Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.
106 I have taken an oath and confirmed it,
that I will follow your righteous laws.
107 I have suffered much;
preserve my life, Lord, according to your word.
108 Accept, Lord, the willing praise of my mouth,
and teach me your laws.
109 Though I constantly take my life in my hands,
I will not forget your law.
110 The wicked have set a snare for me,
but I have not strayed from your precepts.
111 Your statutes are my heritage forever;
they are the joy of my heart.
112 My heart is set on keeping your decrees
to the very end.
When I think of sunshine, I think of a joyful heart. A person who carries a positive attitude and the joy of the Lord. The bible says that the joy of the Lord is your strength. Verse 111 above, speaks of his statues are my heritage forever, they are the joy of my heart. Serving God, brings a peace of knowing that God takes cares of us. He created us for purpose and as we serve him, we surrender our will in some cases to his will. Not everything goes our way, but I have learned over time that God gives peace in all circumstances of life.
Colossians 3:2 New International Version (NIV)
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Verse 112 above says: My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end. Colossians 3:2 set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. These are both scriptures to live by in life. When we set our minds and hearts on God, we know his ways keeps us in peace.
Philippians 4:7 English Standard Version (ESV)
And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
PURPOSE SUNSHINE ~
I'm speaking of the joy of the Lord inside of you.
I am a person who loves being outside and feel the warm of the sun. That same feelings comes when I think of God and his love has surrounded my life. I know he has helped me overcome my past, learn to live in my now and know he is able to handle my future. I look at life as a happy place to be, but deal with real life issues too. The joy of the Lord is my strength, but I must also purpose a good day.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
