Will You?

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalm 30:5 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22
When no peace has come and you’ve prayed the night through,
Will you trust Christ with what He desires for you?

When your hearts been broken by the loss of a loved one,
Will you be able to say, “Thy will be done?”


When you’ve prayed in your heart, “Lord, let this cup pass from me.”
Will you stand in His presence, unashamedly?

Will you take up His cross and His burden to bear,
When He says, “No,” and it seems so unfair?


Will you trust Christ today with His will for you,
When the door is shut and there’s no light coming through?

In the darkest of midnight and in deep despair,
Will you hold on dear child, and know that He cares?

Will you wait on the Lord, there’s no more you can do?
You’ve wept through the night, now joy comes in the morning for you.


Thought:

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. So, when life with its struggles and toils and sins, brings to us conflict of soul, God, "giveth his beloved sleep." (Psalm 127:2) We sleep in Jesus, and awake to the joy of a morning which shall not fade away -- the morning of joy.  Our sorrows, our doubts, our difficulties, overwhelmed us in the night, but as we awake to the morning Light we wonder, “Where have they all gone?” We made it through the night, we have cast our burden upon the Lord and He has given us sweet rest. His promise is sure He will support, help, encourage, give strength, provide, keep us, cheer us, and carry us through the long night of trial, His great gift to us, Christ’s sustaining power.
