Mourning into Joy!!
God says in Jeremiah 31:13 "Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow." God is speaking to each of us! Today we are experiencing a new level of torment, pain, loss, and anger. God sees it all and will turn our mourning into joy! We have been succumbed to loss lately in multitudes, and this does not please God. However, God's Word also says "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." So, our job is to pray and continuing loving on a new level!!! As hard as that sounds, God is calling us to a new level of LOVING ONE ANOTHER! First we are to love God...then we must love our neighbors as we love ourselves! Yes, even in these times, where we become angry at the 'hate' around us...we are to conquer hate with our love! It's the only way.... Father, my prayer for my friends reading this today is: we need YOU! Give us your supernatural strength in these tumultuous times! Pour Your love upon us more than ever before! Show us the miracles in these times- we need to see Your Power! Thank you for loving us and preserving us for such a time as this. WE are here for a purpose! Give each of us the strength to complete our mission here on earth! We say this prayer in the awesome name of Jesus! Amen!
