Coming Joy

Today's reading: Psalm 30:1-12

As I read through Psalm 30 today, the worship song "Trading My Sorrows" by Darrell Evans, which talks about turning over our sorrow, shame and pain for the joy of the Lord, came to mind. Both David's song and "Trading My Sorrows" deliver the message that when we go through times of trial and hardship, we can still be joyful because God is our helper, healer and restorer, and our dark times won't last forever.

"Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning" (vs. 5).

"You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness..." (vs. 11)

When and how has God sustained and walked with you through a trial or hardship? What encouraged you most from this psalm, and why? How might you use this psalm to boost someone's spirits? Tami
