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.

Footprints 2.pngSo do not fear, for I am with you; do not dismayed, for I am your God, I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous hand.          Isaiah 41:10

As I spent time alone today with God I began to think of these words from Isaiah. Isaiah was a prophet from the Old Testament and he was known as the most eloquent of the prophets, analyzed the failures of all the nations around him and pointed to a future Messiah who would bring peace to the national and to the earth. As I re-read these words today I remember and reflect that I am not alone, for wherever I go or whatever I may do I know God is with me. There are a lot of things I simply do not understand of why things may happen to me in my life, or where in the world will I ever get the strength to see a problem thru. What came to my mind in a instant was a poem, as well as a song called “Footprints in the Sand” that I would like to share with all of you.

Did you ever had that feeling when you are going thru life day by day that something or someone walks with you, well my friend there is and his name is Jesus. He promise once we have accepted him as our own personal Lord and Savior he will never leave or forsake us, and believe me he won’t.  Jesus understand your disappointments, your loneliness, your fear, your anxiety and so much more because Jesus loves all of his children and my friend You are His Child.
