Joy Comes in the Morning

13 08 2012

Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones!

Praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
but his favor lasts a lifetime!
Weeping may last through the night,
but joy comes with the morning.   Psalm 30-4-5

Joyful days are a blessing. I am so thankful that the Lord provides gladness that is based on the recognition of who He is in our lives. We may have “night” experiences where it seems that tears and uncertainty are the norm but our Heavenly Father is faithful to provide a new supply of mercy with the rising of the sun to allow us to experience His joy.   Joy is a powerful healer for hurt and pain. His Joy provides strength for us to endure despite difficult circumstances. I am thankful for His Joy, His goodness and His mercy toward me.

…for the joy of the LORD is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10b
