Joy Comes In The Morning
I’m sorry I’ve been absent the last week – I had some health issues of my own to contend with, and unfortunately, my Salmon Of Knowledge series took a beating. However, I’m feeling significantly;y better now. The verse I chose for today is Psalm 30:5 …Weeping may remain for a night, but joy comes in the morning. This verse has been a favorite verse of mine for as long as I can remember. I learned it young and found it a great comfort to me when things were hard growing up.
All Cried Out
Do you remember a time when you cried yourself to sleep? For me, it happened more frequently than I’d like to admit. In fact, I remember my mother showing me this verse in the room we shared when I was a child. The sun was streaming through the south west facing window near her bed and the closet. I don’t remember what the crying was about – I just remember the comfort I felt in knowing that no matter how long the night seemed – no matter how exhausted or brokenhearted I’d been, sorrow only lasted for the evening. Joy would come in the morning. A new day. A new start. Renewed strength.
The promise isn’t that there will be no tears. The promise is that God will be by our side through the tears. He promises to be faithful to us. Joy comes in the morning.
