Joy Comes in the Morning
“For His anger lasts only a moment, but His favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” ~Psalm 30:5
Whenever I send a sympathy card, I really struggle with what to say. Nothing I can come up with sounds authentic. I want to be real and share my heart. The go-to of “thoughts and prayers” has become meme fodder. I’ll sit there, pen in hand with a blank card laying on the table in front of me, thinking, What do I write?
This proves to me that our thoughts are as important as our prayers, because almost every time, the Holy Spirit whispers in my ear, “My words….use My words”. Yes! Why can’t I remember this? Scripture can comfort and heal and bring peace to a grieving soul.
The second part of this verse is one that I often use - “Tears may flow in the night, but joy comes in the morning.” David is so poetic - he knows from experience that hard times are only for a season - that relief always comes. God is the ONLY source of true joy. Even during intense grief or agony, we can know that He is there with us. Jesus suffered Gethsemane - He won’t leave us alone in ours.
“I always remember that the LORD is with me. He is here, close by my side, so nothing can defeat me.” ~Psalm 16:8
Have a blessed day!
