Yesterday was a very difficult day, acknowledging Mothers day and not being able to spoil her, talk with her or hug her. A day doesn't go by where I don't think of her, miss her and honor her many gifts of love and sacrifice.
Taking a cue from how I am feeling, I am allowing myself a day to recuperate. The Lord tells us that we are to be glad and rejoice in the day. Today I will do exactly that. Every moment is a gift. Joy comes in the morning and I cant help but try to apply that to the "mourning" as well. For me its a quest to remain thankful, happy and fulfilled.
Be back next week, God willing, with more messages of encouragement from our Lord!
Have a Blessed week!
Psalm 30:5 For his anger endures but a moment; in his favor is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.
the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes.
Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
Thirsting for God
(2 Samuel 16:1-4)
1O God, you are my God; early will I seek you: my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
2To see your power and your glory, so as I have seen you in the sanctuary.
3Because your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise you.
4Thus will I bless you while I live: I will lift up my hands in your name.
5My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise you with joyful lips:
6When I remember you on my bed, and meditate on you in the night watches.
7Because you have been my help, therefore in the shadow of your wings will I rejoice.
8My soul follows hard after you: your right hand upholds me.
9But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.
11But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that swears by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
