Joy in the Morning

"...weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning."  Psalm 30:5b   Although this scripture is specifically talking about God's wrath, it really helps during any time of sadness.  Not only does joy come in the morning, God can give PEACE and joy in the midst of our mourning.

Right now I feel like this, but...

Joy in the Morning

Family, I can see that it is mourning time for you
So mourn, my heart does too

But with each tear that falls
I will say a prayer for you all

That one day you will see your loved one there
And that Jesus- your sorrow will bear

We are told to rejoice when life passes away
But that is harder to do than to say

So, take your time- all you need
Jesus will comfort you, for you are his beloved seed.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.
