“Weeping may stay for the night but rejoicing comes in the morning.” Psalm 30: 5 NIV
All night long, I was plagued with nightmares. I would wake up from one only to go back to sleep to another. Maybe it was because I’ve been under a little stress or maybe it was last night’s dinner. In either case, I was truly thankful when my alarm clock went off. Seeing that sliver of morning light peeking through my blinds let me know that the nightmares were finally over and everything was going to be alright.
Life is a lot like that too. Sometimes, it feels like we are going from one nightmare to the next. The season of darkness seems to go on forever. We ask ourselves if the morning will ever come. The good news is that the morning will come. Even better news is that God is with us while we’re in the darkness, safely guiding us through our nightmares. God will shine that sliver of morning light on you, just hold on for a little longer. The morning will come.
“I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Psalm 27:13-14 NIV
