Light Up The Sky

This is an amazing and powerful song and video. The Afters CDs have long been music played in our home.

But this one song really captured my heart...




Last year when our life came crashing down and we filed bankruptcy because DH could no longer work due to his injury to his back and later the failed spinal fusion and we lost everything we owned--our home, RV, vehicles, respect of others, etc... it was a hard time for us.  We had presumed on the future--gambled on the ability to always go on as we were doing.  But we could feel the Lord's hand in it all. Such a dark time but through it all we were right where He wanted us.

On one of our trips to go load up stuff to move to the new place we were driving back to our old homestead and this song came on. It was a very low time for me. I had been taking pictures of a beautiful sky after a storm. Amazing scenery. And this song came on the radio and I knew that the Lord was speaking directly to my heart...

No fireworks but this was so beautiful and fitting.
You can read the blog post that I shared this picture originally here.



Light up the Sky
The Afters

When I'm feeling all alone
With so far to go
The signs are nowhere on this road
Guiding me home
When the night is closing in
Is falling on my skin
Oh God will You come close?

Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me You are with me
I I I can't deny
No I can't deny that You are right here with me
You've opened my eyes
So I can see You all around me
Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me
That You are with me

When stars are hiding in the clouds
I don't feel them shining
When I can't see beyond my doubt
The silver lining
When I've almost reached the end
Like a flood You're rushing in
Your love is rushing in

Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me You are with me
I I I can't deny
No I can't deny that You are right here with me
You've opened my eyes
So I can see You all around me
Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me
That You are with me

So I run straight into Your arms
You're the bright and morning sun
To show Your love there's nothing You won't do

Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me You are with me
I I I can't deny
No I can't deny that You are right here with me
You've opened my eyes
So I can see You all around me
Light light light up the sky
You light up the sky to show me
That You are with me

That You are with me
That You are with me

I was expecting a post about your turtle but found this one.
I have suffered several recent losses and have been feeling depressed.
This post helped me. Thanks.
