What’s a day without sunshine?

Of course, the comedic answer is…night. Or maybe you remember how the Florida Citrus Commission used to say “a day without orange juice is like a day without sunshine” Either way, can you imagine a day without the actual sun? That would be weird beyond words. But what if I told you there might be a time like that in your future. In fact, every day might be like that.

A day without sunshine

How about a day without sunshine forever?

Imagine a pure “river of water of life, clear as crystal”. And then imagine a “tree of life” that yields twelve different fruits, one for each month. Wow. Cool stuff. You can probably sort of wrap your mind around those things. Especially if you’ve watched any superhero movies.

But it’s almost impossible to imagine a day without sunshine, much less an eternity without the sun. What in the world am I talking about?

Nothing in this world, actually. But I AM talking about the great I AM. And He says in Heaven there’ll be no need for the sun because He will be our light.

Just let that sink in.

That “day without sunshine” will be an age. A period of time without end. Also known as forever. And if you put your faith and trust in Jesus as Savior of Heaven and Earth, you’ll bask God’s own lightGod’s own light without the need for the sun. It’s gloriously unimaginable for our mere mortal minds. And yet, so cool.

Shine In Your Glory

My love for You, Lord,
Is like a river.
Your love is like…the infinite sky.
You guide my steps
Through this worldly desert,
And I will hold your name most high.

And I will shine in Your glory…
And I will raise my hands to the sky…
And I will shine in Your glory…
And I will praise my Savior on high.

My joy is flowing out
Into your ocean.
Your grace rains down…in my open heart.
You take my hand
When the road is narrow,
And you’re my Light when things get dark.

And I will shine in Your glory…
And I will raise my hands to the sky…
And I will shine in Your glory…
And I will praise my Savior on high.

Shine in your glory… Shine in your glory
Shine in your glory… Shine in your glory
