Joy vs Sorrow

I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. O Lord, you have brought up my soul from Sheol; you restored me to life from among those who go down to the pit. Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning. As for me, I said in my prosperity, “I shall never be moved.” By your favor, O Lord, you made my mountain stand strong; you hid your face; I was dismayed. To you, O Lord, I cry, and to the Lord I plead for mercy: “What profit is there in my death, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it tell of your faithfulness? Hear, O Lord, and be merciful to me! O Lord, be my helper!” You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, that my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever! (Psalm 30, ESV)

Have you ever had a bad day?

A bad week?

A bad month?

A bad year?

I think we have all been there where the world around us seems to be against us and everything is going wrong. So what do we do?

We cry out for help. Some of us will seek out a source of power we may have never went to before, or we may seek out God after a long time away.

We seek comfort in our times of trouble. That is our nature. We look for what is good for us. We are not usually worried too much with the world around us unless our lives are in order. We should always though sing the praises of the Lord and seek what is right and just for all of His creation around us.

You see the psalmist here tells us that God’s anger lasts only a moment, but His favor a lifetime, and even though we cry ourselves to sleep and mourn through the night His joy comes with the morning.

God helps us to turn around to Him and see the joy that is waiting for us. Take the joy Hi has for you and run with it. Even in the darkest times, Joy is always there to have from the one who created you and made you to help others see the love He has for them!
