Sunlight On Your Face

March 4, 2009
Psalm 112:4   Even in darkness light dawns{arises} for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous one.

Soon after posting Upright Dawn and thinking about light dawning in the darkness I heard the following song.

You Led Me
Good morning
The night is over and gone
I thought once
This dark would last for so long
Pre Chorus
Feel the sunlight
On my face
You have brought me
Through this place
Jesus, Jesus You found me
Through the long night you led me
You set me free

Do you see
Just what you’ve done in my life?

You gave me
More then I hoped for; now I

Pre Chorus
feel your sunlight
On my face
You have brought me
Through this place

It brought me such hope! There is no place so dark that the light of the Son can not reach.

If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, and the light around me will be night,”  even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You. –Ps 139:11-12

So if you find yourself in a dark place today, take heart, the Lord Jesus makes a way where there is no way. He cares for those who belong to Him. He leads His own out of the darkness into the light of dawn, into the rising Son.

Rejoice! Seek the Son! Feel the Sonlight on your up turned face leading you out of the darkness of night into the light of the full day. The upright WILL behold His face!

Keep your face turned towards the sunshine
And the shadows will fall behind you.


Psalm 11:7   The LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.

Numbers 6:24-26   The LORD bless you, and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn His face towards you and give you peace.”


Upright Dawn

February 28, 2009


Psalm 112:4
Even in darkness light dawns{arises} for the upright,
For the gracious and compassionate and righteous one.

Proverbs 4:18
The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
Shining ever brighter till the full light of day.


It’s only by the LORD’s grace, compassion and lovingkindness that we can stand upright before Him. Only when we have our faces turned toward the Son can we continue to walk uprightly on the path of righteousness.


The righteous & upright are commanded to rejoice and praise the LORD as they walk and stand! Rejoice and feel the Son shine rising on your up turned face! Let it fill you up!

Psalm 64:10    Let the righteous rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in Him; let all the upright in heart praise Him!


Be Lifted Up!

Psalm 146:8   The LORD opens the eyes of the blind; The LORD raises up those who are bowed down; The LORD loves the righteous.

Psalm 7:10   My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart.

All you who are bowed down, weary, faint
Lift up your head to the Son
Lift up your heads, O you gates of praise. –Isa 60:18

Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous ones; And shout for joy, all you who are upright in heart. –Ps 32:11

Be lifted up!
Open the door for the King of glory to come in.

Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is He, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty— He is the King of glory.
Selah –Ps 24:9-10

For its only as you lift up your head
And keep your face turned towards the Son
That you will be strengthened and revived
Lifted up to stand upright.

Psalm 12:5    “Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, Now I will arise,” says the LORD; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”
