Five Minute Friday: Joy Comes in the Morning

 Psalm 30:5 – weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning

I am reminded of this verse and a song that I used to hear as a child at church.  I am reminded that each day ends often with sadness, hardship, feelings of overwhelming anxiety…but joy comes in the morning.  Each day God gifts us with grace for a new beginning…we can approach the new day with a joyful spirit….a new start

When working to push through and accomplish mundane tasks or pressures from all areas of life, I recall that the joy of the Lord is my strength.  He is the ROCK I can go to when I am overcome with grief, doubt, insecurity, troubles….

I can look around and be filled with joy just by remembering the blessing of family, the fresh ocean air, a reliable career, and HIS consistent promises offered in Scripture.

So,  by the end of the day when my heart is full of grief and mourning, I can rest in the Lord and be renewed through the joy that is mine for the taking each morning.

  1. I love the text about joy coming in the morning–it always reminds me that it takes time and isn’t a quick emotion like a happy meal. Sometimes, we have to wrestle a bit and work on our characters before joy can settle in for the long haul.

  2. It’s one of my favorite verses. It gives me hope when I’m going through difficult times. It is very comforting to know we have a God who loves us so much. And that alone gives the reason for the joy in our hearts.

  3. Psalm 30:5 is my fave! I wrote about it too. I’m visiting from FMF where I’m parked in the #16 spot.
