Joy Comes in the Morning

My dear friends:

Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

As I awake to a new day with the chorus of birds singing their sweet melodies from Heaven yes even at 4:45 a.m.:) , I reflect upon the Biblical promise offered in Psalm 3o:5. “For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning” (NASB).

Today, let us all take hold of the promise that while weeping endures for a night, joy, beautiful, perfect and comforting and life-giving joy comes in the morning.

My dear friends, in whatever circumstance you are going through trust in that Biblical promise even when doubt and fear says not to, that even if God should call you to come home, that your inner sorrow and pain is but a passing temporary condition as God gives you the agape gift of eternity with Him.

Be blessed.



About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

  1. you couldn’t have said it better. Amen. My father passed away this Sunday and in moments like this is where we draw our strength…May God continue to bless you.

    • May the Lord bring comfort and strength in the loss of your father. My father died of pneumonia about eight years ago. I still miss him. Yet, I can take comfort in knowing that he is with the Lord, where he is no longer ravaged and eaten away at in his mind, body and spirit by manic depressant schizophrenia. I thank God that I forgave my father a few years before he died for all the physical and emotional abuse I experienced.

      He’s in Heavan where there is no more sorrow or pain.

      The peace of our Lord be with you as you grieve.


  2. Well-said. Sometimes when we are going through despair, it’s hard to see that joy will come again…but it does 🙂

    • Yes, it does. Thanks for the compliment.

      I encourage you to pursue your writing. I read “Darlene’s Story.” As a fellow writer I can tell you that it has a plot line that moves well, is creative and engaging. You have a very pleasing writing style that flows in a rhythmic pattern.

      You should prayerfully consider joining a Christian writer’s group, where you can network with other writers and have your work critiqued. I think you have a publishable book.

      Here’s a link to the Christian writer’s guild.

      If you are interested in taking online courses in writing after you pay a $99 membership fee, you get all the courses at Writer’s Village University free even to the M.F.A. level. You get a certificate for each course you complete. Info. in link below.

      My wife and I would like to get a Christian literary agent. Do you know how we would go about this? Karen has a very moving love story between a Navy pilot and a veterinarian. It’s called “Promises and Dreams.”

      I now have a book synopsis for the story of my life. It’s called “God’s Miracles For Him.”

      When time allows in your schedule, I would welcome your comments on it. The link for it is below.

      Thanks for taking the time to read and respond to my letter.

      God’s peace be with you.
