Grief to Joy
“Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.” Psalm 126:5 (NIV)
Tears seem uncontrollable in a season of grief, but God remembers every tear we shed. Life on earth offers plenty of sorrows and many opportunities to cry, but it is during these times that we can take heart that our Lord comforts us in loneliness. God longs for the day when we will be far removed from weeping, when our sadness will turn to joy.
We can’t always see beyond our tears, or find hope beyond our hurt, but it is these times that we must lean on God though faith. The promise is sure and the day will come when we will forever trade our tearfulness for joyfulness.
Let’s pray today that we may find comfort in our Lord’s presence and long for Heaven’s joy.
