These songs that have been in development for a number of years and are a natural progression from the last Songs of Deliverance project "Children of the Promise".
The concepts of sunshine and rain relate to an expression of God's love for his children. While they are different in form, both sunshine and rain are needed for growth and development.
"But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust." (Matthew 5:44,45 ESV)
"Sunshine" is a collection of songs that are bright and full of energy. They are full of hope and warmth and express the blessings God has provided for us.
"Rain" is a collection of songs about the blessings of God in times of reflection. They reflect on God's hand as seen in creation, and the hope and comfort he provides in times of difficulty.
Although not strictly kids songs, we believe that many families will enjoy the energy of "Sunshine" after receiving a lot of feedback from the song "Good News of the Kingdom of God".
Many of the songs contain the principles of sunshine and rain; the blessings of God designed to produce growth and a life of love. These blessings come during times of difficulty as well as times of great joy. We pray that these songs will help produce growth and help during all of these times.
"And He shall be as the light of the morning when the sun rises, a morning without clouds, when the tender grass springs out of the earth, through sunshine after rain." (2 Samuel 23:4)
