Shadow proves the Sunshine

I love this song. It describes so much of where I am and the feeling that things just aren’t the way they are supposed to be. I could wonder, “where is God in all this” when the trouble seems so big, but then if the trouble is the shadow of something out of place, something that is blocking the sun, well, that tells me where God is. He’s where He is supposed to be.

Isn’t the fact that I can judge that there is something wrong the same as seeing the shadow and the light that reveals it?

O, Shine on me!

The Shadow Proves The Sunshine
by Switchfoot

Sunshine, won’t you be my mother
Sunshine, come and help me sing
My heart is darker than these oceans
My heart is frozen underneath

We are crooked souls trying to stay up straight,
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light where
The shadow proves the sunshine

Oh Lord, why did you forsake me?
Oh Lord, don’t be far away away
Storm clouds gathering beside me
Please Lord, don’t look the other way

Crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light were
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Yeah Yeah, shine on me

Crooked souls trying to stay up straight
Dry eyes in the pouring rain
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Two scared little runaways
Hold fast to the break of day light were
The shadow proves the sunshine
The shadow proves the sunshine

Yeah Yeah, shine on me

Shine on me,
Let my shadows prove the sunshine

    This was definitely one of my favorites from their Nothing is Sound album. I love how he brought in some of the honesty of Psalms.
