Sadness to Joy
“Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!” Psalm 126:5 (ESV)
Sorrow may seem to show up with loneliness, but God sees and remembers every tear you shed. Life on earth offers plenty of reasons to grieve and many opportunities to cry, but it is during these times that we can take heart that our Lord sees, knows, and comforts. Our God is not unaware or untouched by your tears. God longs for the day when we will be far removed from our sorrow, when our sadness will turn to shouts of joy.
Let’s pray today that we may find comfort in our Lord’s presence and long for Heaven’s joy.
