Psalm 30:5For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime
Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.

“Tough seasons” in life can cause us to lose perspective, struggling to see beyond “the darkness” to what God is bringing together for His glory and our joy…
During this time of “Holy Week” leading up to Easter, is a time of reflection for believers to consider the call and cost of our Lord to purchase our salvation.  It’s an opportunity to think about not only what Christ finished for our victory, but think about how we are actually experiencing salvation/deliverance to affirm His victory! (1 Corinthians 15:56-57)
So when times of “darkness” overwhelm us, as it did Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, we must go deeper in prayer and communion with the Father, to surrender to God’s will in times of suffering.  Knowing that the same power that raised Christ from the dead, can raise us out of the darkness of such seasons, believing our soul shall praise Him again. ( Romans 8:11, 2 Corinthians 4:8-10)
The Psalmist does this very thing, knowing that there is a season for everything.  So though there is a season of weeping, if we know Christ, there is joy to anticipate in Him as well.  Though circumstances may not always change, our soul can be healed to magnify the Lord, joyously testifying of His deliverance from the darkness of past, present, and future sufferings.  (Ecclesiastes 3:1, Isaiah 29:19)
That is the hope and joy we have in salvation from Jesus, ultimately unto eternity, undisturbed by darkness to enjoy perfect communion with Him.Psalm 149:4-5For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation. 5 Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.-In His Love, Ld
