Despite the Circumstance, JOY Does Come!

Mourning Turning to Joy (Joy comes in the Morning) 7-10-24

I am picking up where I left off a couple of days ago, to bring encouragement to the readers. I thank the Lord for being able to encourage each of my readers despite my own feelings. What I love is, this is not about me, but others need to be encouraged also. This helps me not to concentrate on myself but to consider what others are going through.

The Word of God tells us to esteem others more highly than ourselves. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or empty pride, but in humility consider others more important than yourselves (Philippians 2:3).

Someone is struggling with a situation that is beyond your comprehension, and you may not know how to deal with it. I want to encourage you with these words. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5b). You have turned 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 30:11-12).

I don’t know how long the night/s may be, but eventually joy does come in the morning. The night may be dark and gloomy for you, but daylight will come and the Son will shine on you to lighten whatever load you are carrying.

Are you experiencing some challenges today? I encourage you to consider what someone else is going through, and I have no doubt you will feel better, because you are not fully concentrating on your own situation.

Grace and Peace,

Betty A. Burnett ~
