Girded with Gladness
Psa 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
Psa 30:11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
When we became children of the Most High God, we were never promised all sunshine and roses. The path that the Christian is called to tread is sometimes strewn with darkness and difficulty.
However, He is always with us along the way and being found in His favor is to experience life more abundantly. In His favor is life!
Yes, we mourn. Sure, we are found grieving from time to time. But it always gives way to joy and rejoicing.
Believing friend, you have been girded with gladness. Trust and hope in Him for the joy that is coming your way. The weeping may endure for a night, but joy is coming in the morning.
