Psalm 30 (Amplified Bible). In verses 1-4, whatever our downfall (hurt feelings, poor eating, depression, etc) God is there to bring us light, joy, and healing. He is so worthy of our praise.

(1) I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up and have not let my foes rejoice over me.
(2) O Lord my God, I cried to You and You have healed me.
(3) O Lord, You have brought my life up from Sheol (the place of the dead); You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit (the grave).
(4) Sing to the Lord, O you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.

Then comes the promise (Verse 5) we can be ever so grateful for when our God doesn't remain angry with us. How often do we hold on to an anger for far too long. I know people who still remember with regularity the pain caused them many years ago.-- Ouch! Praise God that we have such a merciful and compassionate God on our side.

(5) For His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime or in His favor is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

May we strive to be true and loving role models for Christianity, while making new disciples for Christ, so that others look at us and desire to want what we have -- the Love of a gracious and merciful God who brings salvation through His son, Jesus Christ.

Psalm 30 is filled with reasons for us to celebrate in God's great faithfulness and love for his people. Praise God!

Neh. 2:18 Then I told them of the hand of my God... so they strengthen their hands for this good work.

I got this message and it has got me through the day


"You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness" - Psalm 30:11

Have you ever felt sad and desperate? We all go through rough patches in life, but one thing we need to keep in mind is that God will turn our mourning into dancing and our tears into joyful song. It may take faith and patience, but it will happen. Don't despair, He is there for you. Always
