Though tears come through the Night...
Joy comes in the morning.
I bet that could also read Joy comes in the Mourning....grief gives way and births something amazing when we are married to God.
It literally JUST dawned on me as I was writing it!!! (No pun intended by using the word dawn 🤭)
I sent this thread to a friend who is grieving this morning. She replied that she has actually researched this and the word Morning. It is used both ways! So our Lord once again proves He has thought of everything. Every deep and marvelous Wonder is at our fingertips and all we need to do is:
- be still and drink in His Goodness
- explore His writings
- seek Him.
Revelation will find us even when we though we were sending an encouraging text to a friend who is hurting.
There is nothing like the beauty a true friend can bring. Sometimes when we have a good friend at our fingertips who is always there for us we take them for granted.
There are seven wonders of the world...
How many people who live near these marvelous destinations yet become so accustomed to their presence that they forget what a present they have?
God is greater than any wonder of the world. He holds sturdier than any pyramid or Roman Ruin. I was amazed by the structure of some Roman Ruins I recently visited in Caesarea, Israel. How much more must it be to witness those in actual Rome! He stands taller than any statue in South America. And he holds stronger and has fortified His love in our hearts chambers as The Great Wall protecting our life better than the Great Wall of China.
We don't have to travel abroad over seas or climb on any camels to travel to the very Throne of Heaven. Heavens Keeper is more than willing to set up residence within your heart. How marvelous and beautiful is that?
I encourage you. I am encouraging myself as well, to not take this love for granted. Wrap hold. Grab hold. His Joy is there for you every morning. On the days He feels close, He is. On the days He doesn't feel close, He's even closer. He will never leave you or forsake you and His Joy comes...hold on.
In modern day to be friendly to everyone is considered strange. Keep on being nice and friendly anyway. Your smile might be the only wonderful thing someone else's day offers. You can heal a heart with a smile and you never know who it will be or how God is using you. And the smiles you give just might be used to heal yourself as well.
"We often think our friends help us when we are weak. And they do. But it's also true that we become strong when we have friends to be strong for."
Display unmatchable kindness today!
For to our Lord, you are a Wonder in this World, too.
You were made to live a life Extraordinary! -Nicole

but joy comes with the morning." Psalm 30:5
