Come on sunshine! You promise joy in the morning Lord.

“Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.

For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:4-5, NKJV

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” ~ Romans 15:13, NIV

“When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches.
Because You have been my help, Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.” ~ Psalm 63:6-7, NKJV

Come on Sunshine! Awaken the Dawn

Lord, many of Your people are heavy-laden. A spirit of heaviness has fallen across our land, and perhaps the world. But I know You draw near to those who are crushed in spirit. You promise that joy comes in the morning, that weeping may endure for the night, but Your faithfulness will awaken the dawn. Come on sunshine!

I trust You to do that.

Come on sunshine! You promise joy in the morning Lord.

With expectant hope I anticipate Your deliverance from the deception and depravity of mankind that is everywhere.

So many have lost family members, businesses, their own health. So many are drowning beneath the weight and discouragement of it all.

Call to us, Lord. As deep calls to deep, wash over Your people like a mighty rushing river. Dispel the darkness with Your glorious light. Come on Sunshine! For joy is promised in the morning … it is! You are faithful to Your Word to perform it.

You are faithful to me, Your child.

Set my feet to dancing, laughter flowing easily from my heart. I miss the twinkle in my eye that seems to have dimmed from the cares of this broken world. Would You help me find it again? Would You overcome the spirit of heaviness with Your peace and joy?

I will praise You for as long as I live. Praise will usher in the dawn. Come on sunshine! For joy comes in the morning. Always.

You Have Given Me Expectant Hope, Lord

I wait expectantly for You because I have placed my hope in You. I look to the morning and anticipate the glorious sunrise. For You are good. I can rest in Your love.
