|Psalm 30:5 NLT|
|2019-10-14||Written by Bob and Debby Gass|
Ever felt the pain of having so much to share, and nobody to share it with? Or feeling discouraged and disappointed because of a mistake, or from being let down by others? Or feeling unloved, rejected, and forgotten? We will all go through seasons where it feels dark. Where we are not sure that God's light and joy can ever return to our hearts, and our lives. But when we are in those times, we can be assured that God knows what's happening, He sees us, and He cares. His Word deals with real-life issues like loneliness, failure, and lack of self-worth. He repeatedly tells us to not be afraid. If we are struggling, we need to know that we are not alone. 'The God of all comfort' is with us (2 Corinthians 1:3). No one understands like Jesus. His family rejected Him, His disciples abandoned Him, and the crowd condemned Him. That's why the Bible says 'our high priest is able to understand our weaknesses. He was tempted in every way that we are' (Hebrews 4:15 NCV). He knows, He understands, and He invites us to come to Him. The season we are in right now won't last forever. A new one is coming, with new energy, new relationships, new experiences, and new joy. We can't rush the seasons. The new season will come when it's the right time. And God knows exactly when that will be. There may be things we need to learn and change in this season which will help us move forward in the next. It might feel uncomfortable right now, and we might be praying for this particular season to end, but God is working. So until our new season comes, let's remember that 'Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.'
