It’s Turning Around
Storms have come our way and the downpours of life have drenched us, and through it all it felt like it was only raining on our side of the street. We saw others seemingly basking in the bright sunshine of their lives, while we are contending with winds that were keeping us from moving forward. No matter what we are going through we must remember that The Lord is with us, and He will see us through every storm and difficulty we may face. The Scripture reminds us that, we shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and we shall be sorrowful, but our sorrow shall be turned into joy. I encourage you today to endure what you are facing now because The Lord will turn your sorrow into joy. The Lord knows what you are facing, and He knows what you are going through, so have confidence that through it all you will have joy in the end, because The Lord will turn it around for you. Do not give up or give in because it seems like you are the only one going through something, know that since The Lord is with you, joy is in your future. The Lord has promised you that He would turn your sorrow into joy, and because He will do what He said He would do concerning you, there is no need to fret or fear, just trust Him to work it out for you. Stand on His promises even with tears in your eyes, knowing that joy is on the way. I know that there are going to be some days that I will have sorrow, but I am excited that my sorrow will be turned into joy. Since I know that The Lord is turning it around for me, I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Thank you Lord for turning my sorrow into joy. Thank you for reminding me that you are always with me. No matter what it looks like now, I know that there is sunshine after the rain, and blessings in my future. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
