Morning

…Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5)

 

Sometimes it feels like life only consists of nighttime, because is seems like your life is consumed with “weeping” (i.e. – hurts, disappointments, depression, etc). When you’ve been surrounded by darkness for so long, a brighter day seems far-fetched and somewhat fictitious. Believe me, I know the feeling, BUT let me offer you some encouragement…

Many people have a tendency to wait until things get better (i.e. until they see the “break of dawn”) to cheer up,  but why wait? Why not partake in joy now?  David, in the book of Psalms, said that joy comes in the morning. If you think about it, when it’s 1 a.m., it’s pitch black outside, but it’s still morning (“1 a.m. in the morning”). What I’m trying to say is although your situation has been dark for some time, you’ve got to have faith that it’s morning and invite joy to come into your situation. Regardless of how dark it is, have joy by faith! When you “employ” joy, daylight is soon to follow.

P.S. – Here’s a little “Word Wealth” for you:

In Hebrew the word for joy (in Psalm 30:5) is “rinnah,” which means “a shout of rejoicing, shouting; loud cheering in triumph; singing.” Rinnah describes the kind of joyful shouting at the time of great victory. A good illustration of this can be found in Zephaniah 3:17 where is says God will dance over His beloved people with singing (or a shout of joy)…Helpful Tip: I jumpstart my joy every morning by putting on some music and singing songs to the Lord. This is my way of declaring victory over my day before I leave the house, and it definitely gives my joy a boost! **G.I.G.**
