Weeping may endure for a night…

But JOY comes in the morning!

I think we have all had those seasons in our lives where everything seems to go wrong. You don’t have a job or you’re stuck in a job you hate. You don’t have the spouse you want or, if you have one, he/she is riding your last nerve.  You can’t have kids or the kids you have are behaving every way but good. You can’t afford to go to school or your going to school but can’t stand your professor and are now starting to question your decision to go in the first place. I could go on an on, but the point is that all of these things are enough to, at times, make you want to cry. Understand, you are not wrong for having these feelings. They are natural and a part of living life. BUT, it is wrong and very detrimental to stay there.

5 For His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime or in His favor is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. -Psalm 30: 5

God can turn our situations around for our good! He says to cast your care upon Him! I don’t know about you, but this brings me peace beyond understanding. Sure, I can get upset and cry…I’m allowed to do that, but don’t get stuck! Don’t get so swallowed up in your situation that you forget the power of God. There is no mountain so great that He can’t climb and no valley so low that He can’t dig you out!

11 You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; you have put off your sackcloth and girded me with gladness -Psalm 30:11

Release your situation to God. Let Him handle it and walk into His perfect peace. Cry…scream…holler…shout (to yourself not at others) if you have to, but whatever you do, don’t stay there!  Let go and let God!

3 You will keep  him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. -Isaiah 26:3

Today I am thankful that I can cast my care, worry, depression on God and live in His Perfect Peace.
