Joy Comes

Weeping may last through the night,
but joy comes with the morning.         Psalm 30:5 (NLT)

It’s a short devotion today. It’s come from my heart, short and sweet.

Have you ever noticed how things often seem so very large and dark at night? Babies wake up at midnight with fevers, not at noon time. Emergency Rooms are busier in the middle of the night, not so much in the afternoon. Have you ever not been able to sleep because of worry about a problem? And does the worry seem to help the problem? It never has for me.

Jesus asks that question in Matthew’s gospel (6:27). He tells me that the Father provides for the flowers and the birds of the air. The Father provides. It all comes down to trust, doesn’t it?

God sees our problems and how we worry and lose sleep over them. He sees how we try to figure them out for ourselves. He wants to guide us to the best path. All we have to do is call Him.

I hope with this short devotion that you will take the time to read all of Psalm 30. The writer will share his testimony about trusting God through the difficulties of life. It will be a blessing to you. I’m going to go read it myself again.
