For I will turn their mourning into joy and will comfort them and give them joy for their sorrow. Jeremiah 31:13B (NASB)
Today's thought from today's verse:
As already noted, sometimes our joy gets chipped away at by the involvements and entanglements of life here on earth. But sometimes our joy is stripped away by the hurt and pain that comes with the trials and troubles of life. What great promises from God to his people in our Jeremiah passage. God says he will turn our mourning into joy. He says he will comfort us and give us joy for our sorrow. How loving and good God is.
Today's prayer response from today's thought:
Lord, I need your healing touch. Show me how to receive your comfort in full and allow you to replace my sorrow with your joy. Amen!
