Joy Comes in the Morning

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that by the power of the Holy Spirit, you may abound in hope.” (Romans 15:13 ESV)

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, and be constant in prayer.” (Romans 12:12 ESV)

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again, I will say, rejoice.” (Philippians 4:4 ESV)

Ever get bad news and then got depressed? I think we all have one time or another. What do you do? I usually get really quiet and stay to myself. I isolate myself for a while.

What we should do right away is call on Jesus for help. Jesus is there for us. No matter what. I know that after realizing I am off a little, I can get myself straightened out again. Then my joy comes back. I’m more fun to be around if I’m happy. We all are if we would just admit it.

There’s a song written by the Gaithers called “Joy Comes In The Morning”:

“Hold on, my child.

Joy comes in the morning.

Weeping only lasts for the night.

Hold on, my child.

Joy comes in the morning. The darkest hour means dawn is just in sight.” (Joy Comes in the Morning by the Gaithers)

If we remember that Jesus is holding us tightly, we can always be joyful. Troubles come and go, but joy will come in the morning. Joy is much better than depression anyway. So put your troubles in the very capable hands of Jesus and then smile.

Have a great day.
