And, there is joy in the morning! I think that sometimes the Lord makes us aware that we are just traveling through this world by giving us a glimpse of who we live among. He doesn’t want us to be too comfortable. We need to make the best of our time here, and surround ourselves with other soldiers in the ministry, our sisters and brothers in Christ. Who better to feel our struggles while dealing with the enemy’s attacks than our co-heirs. The older I get, the more I realize what little time we have to make a difference in this world, so don’t get stuck in pitiful misery, use your time wisely. Give the Lord the praise He deserves. Lift up your voice to Him in thankfulness and adoration. He sees us, He knows our struggle. Our joy is found in Him, not in this place.
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. Psalms 30:2-5
