What is joy?
Yesterday is Gone
A Cold Drink on a Hot Summer Day

During this time I was going through a really hard time. Depression was trying to overcome me, and there were many struggles in my family and my life. It was so hard to have faith at that time. But I held on and things did get much better.
When the sun is shining and the sky is blue
It's easy to trust Him and your faith feels brand new.
When the birds are singing and you have no pain
Faith rises up inside, and you can smell the rain.
Your life is full of joy, your needs are all being met
You look all around you and your world is all set.
Then comes the clouds, the storm lashes the skies
Darkness comes in over you, and the singing dies.
As the darkness swirls around you, and the sun never shines
The pain is so intense, and you yearn for the good times,
Now is the time for the testing
How deep is your faith?
Can you trust Him now when all you can do is wait?
Can you believe He is there, when you see no hope?
My friend, now's the time to hang on to that Rope,
The Scarlet Ribbon from the Cord of Love He holds
Because it's then youíll learn that's how your faith unfolds.
It fills your heart with joy because you can hold to the Light
Your faith grows in the test of the storm
All through the night.
