“For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5

I’ve been writing about suffering for a couple weeks, and this passage starts out talking about sadness, unhappy things we encounter in life. But then we hear, “Joy comes in the morning”. No matter what you are facing today it will not last forever. Your life will turn around; God has been listening to your prayers and He will answer them when the time is right. Your life will suddenly be blessed.

Even if you are suffering an incurable illness and leave this life in pain and misery, you need to know that there is an eternal life that is better than anything you can imagine. There is joy in the knowledge that we have everlasting life with our Lord and Savior.

You will wake up someday, either in your own bed in your own house and things will be better for you. Or you will wake up in heaven where there is never any pain or suffering or worries at all.

It is all in God’s hands, and all we can do sometimes is wait until our own morning of joy arrives.
