Joy Comes In The Morning

Psalm 34.jpgThe righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them, he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. These words from King David reminds me how I cry out to you My Lord. Why has the enemy attack me, persecute me over and over, no matter how I try to walk with you Lord each and everyday, I can heard the hurtful words behind me, and so many things seem to go wrong. All that my soul longs to do, is to serve you my Lord, for when I do serve it brings me such great joy deep within my soul. I am not perfect just a simply woman who longs to please you, who fears you Oh God and not man, but it is the sharp tongue of a human that does so much harm to another. The more that I want to share with others how much you love your children, the more I seem to be under attack, in one way or another, anywhere I turn the attacks continue. In the stillness of the night my heart cries out to you Lord, I just long to walk so closely with you on the path of righteous.

I hear you voice gently and quietly in my heart, that you are my God and that you are with me. You will uphold me with your righteous right hand. Let your words enfold me like a warm blanket, sheltering me from the coldness of fear and dismay. When troubles seems to be staking me, I will grip you hand ever so tightly and stay in communication with you thru my prayers. I will trust and not be afraid, for you Lord are my strength and my shield. Your powerful presence is with me at all times, and I will remember I do not face anything alone. I know somehow you will give me the strength that I need to get thru the day, and your love for me as your child will bring me such wonderful joy and peace. Your righteous hand holds me up in both good and bad times in my life. When things are going well in my life I am unaware of your sustaining presence. When I walk through the valley I shall cling to your my Lord and my Redeemer, the “Great I Am” Your right hand sustains me during these times of affliction, enabling me to keep one foot in front of the other. As I endure different trials in my life, help me to continue to trust you and only you My Lord. Shall you bless me in the midst of a hardship, and I know that you can make all things new again. You shall reach down into the valley of my affliction and you will remind me ever so gentle that “Joy Will Come In the Morning.

Strength

Proverbs 31In the book of Proverbs 31 the author speaks about the wife of a noble character, as I read these words about a wife strength it is not just for a wife, however it is for any and ever woman who deals with a lot in her life.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her. Many woman do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting, but  woman who fears the Lord is be praise. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.    Proverbs 31:23-31

These words from the book of Proverbs is for all woman, there are many women who have been both mother and father. Who had no choice but to work a full time job as well as run a household and raise children. There also some who decided to return to school to better themselves with a better paying job, and you have come to realize the strength you truly have. There are some who care for someone sick and you have become the caregiver sometimes twenty-four hours a day, and yet some have to deal with your own personal pain and struggles in life. When those days become somewhat difficult for you to bear turn to God’s word and pray for your strength to get you thru each moment of your day. Remember these words in proverbs you are clothed with dignity, and your strength comes from God.
