Walking in Sunlight by Stephanie Mabry




I am SO excited to have recently found this song! How could you not get in a good mood just from reading the title of the song, let alone the fun beat it has!? The message of this song is so simple.  So often I teach the youth (girls ages 12-13) in my Sunday class that if they live righteously, and strive to be like Jesus Christ, they will have the Light of Christ shining with in them. Not only is it the way our Heavenly Father wants us to live, but it is the way that will help us to feel good about ourselves. It truly is a beautiful feeling. It truly is like walking in sunlight. You know that feeling you have when you've been stuck inside all day and you walk outside to the warmth of the sun? That's what it feels like to have the Light of Christ, warmth, happiness, love. If we live the right way, others will notice it in us, and want us to show them how they can have the same thing. I know there is a reason I have always LOVED sunrise and sunsets. They fill me with so much joy, and remind me of the love my Heavenly Father has for me. I want to shine with that light and be a window to others of that light. It is human nature to long to be happy, feel loved, and show love to others. WE can walk in that sunlight, and help push the rain clouds away from others and share the light.


Walking in Sunlight by Stephanie Mabry 
(EFY, 2010)

It's a beautiful day, even though its dark out there
You've got sun on your face take it with you everywhere
And it warms your heart that's beating, it comes from believing
And it's a beautiful, a beautiful feeling
It's like walking in sunlight, when the whole world is covered in rain clouds
Your walkin' in sunlight, find the whole truth and living it out loud
Yeah when you know whats right, it's light walking in, Sunlight sunlight

Its amazing to me, how someone else can find
The light that they need, radiating in your eyes
Then it warms their heart that's beating
And suddenly your leading them to that beautiful,  beautiful feeling
It's like walking in sunlight, when the whole world is covered in rain clouds
Your walking in sunlight, finding the truth and living it out loud
Yeah when you know whats right, it's like walking in sunlight, sunlight

It's easy to forget how blessed we are
but life's better, when we remember, when we remember

It's like walking in sunlight, when the whole world is covered in rain clouds
We're walking in sunlight, finding the truth and living it out loud
Yeah when you know whats right, it's like walking in sunlight, sunlight
Sunlight, sunlight
Sunlight, sunlight
