A Pocketful of Sunshine

This song by Natasha Bedingfield, A Pocketful of Sunshine, is a very upbeat song that seems to speak only about one thing – lots and lots of joy. But she isn’t the only one who has access to this kind of joy. In fact, we all are able to experience an even greater amount of joy through Jesus Christ.

Read 1 Peter 1:8 (

Joy isn’t something we feel, like happiness. It’s something we experience, even with all the other things we might be feeling – sadness, anger, worry and even happiness. Joy comes from Jesus. Seek Him for your pocketful of sunshine.




“I don’t believe you.”

“I swear, it’s true! I saw Him with my own eyes!”

“So did I. I saw Him when Judas betrayed Him with a kiss. I saw Him when He faced Pilate. I saw Him when He was whipped and carrying His cross. I saw Him hanging there. And I saw Him die! It’s not true.”

“But it is. I promise you it’s true. I really saw Him. So did everyone else.”

“You’re all just imagining it!”


“Peace be with you.”

“JESUS! You’re here!”

“…my Lord and my God!”

“Did they see you!?”

“No, they didn’t. Don’t worry, no one knows we’re hiding here.”

“I still can’t believe it. One minute He was praised as King, and the next they crucified Him!”

“If they find us, they’ll kill us like they killed Him.”

“They won’t.”

“I can’t sleep. I just keep seeing the blood, and hearing His voice. He said God had forsaken Him.”

“And those people kept mocking Him. Even while He was dying! WHAT’S WRONG WITH THEM!?”

“So, what do we do now?”

“Not sure Maybe in a few days people will forget and we can leave.”

“Wait, I see Him. He looks terrible!”

“I don’t want to look, how can all these people be cheering? Don’t they know who He is?”

“Oh no, He’s stumbled. All that blood must be causing Him to slip.”

“Why are they doing this? What’s He done wrong!?”

“You heard Pilate, He’s done nothing wrong. But these people wanted Him dead anyway.”

“You’d better look away and cover your ears. They’re about to nail Him to the cross. They always scream in pain when that happens.”
“PAH! Look at that sign: Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews. What a joke”
