“Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy. They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.” Psalms 126 NLT
Am I focusing on the dead, dry places or His power to restore? How awesome that my tears can be seeds that are turned into joy.
“From the depths of despair, O Lord, I call for your help. Hear my cry, O Lord. Pay attention to my prayer. I am counting on the Lord; yes, I am counting on him. I have put my hope in his word.” Psalms 130:1-5 NLT
The Psalms help me to preserve. And remind me where my hope is.
“How joyful are those who fear the Lord-all who follow his ways!” Psalms 128:1 NLT
Dear Father, thank you for your faithfulness. For hearing my prayers. Thank you that you are with me. My joy is found in You. Amen.
