Songs of Joy During Sorrow

The amazing thing about God is He gives us songs of joy during times of sorrow. If we can continue to keep our eyes on Jesus, joy always comes in the morning. Though it seems dark an gloomy at times our Savior has promised to never leave us or forsake you and me.

Take a look at these great scriptures:

Psalms 126:5
Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.

In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]

Somehow the things we focus on get bigger. Choose to focus on things today that you can be thankful for. This will help to keep you from feeling gloomy.

Life sometimes is difficult, that is just the way life is. God will provide joy through and after the difficult times that we experience. Jesus is basically saying in this scripture, I know what you’re going through, I am with you, I am your protector, and I have a winning plan, trust me, smile and be cheerful, I am on your side. If we keep putting our trust in the Lord, God promises songs of joy will come.

Prayer: God help me today to keep my focus on your reality and promises for my life. I understand that even though times are tough, you can bring joy in the mist of the messes. God please put a new song in my spirit today. I cannot get through the sorrow without your touch.
