Joy comes in the morning!

Why would the proclaimation, joy comes in the morning, be more significant than, joy comes at noonday, or at sunset.


I can honestly say I did not fully understand the concept of joy coming in the morning until I worked the midnight shift as a nurse. There is something about pain and agony, both physical and emotional, that causes them to be much worse at night. The hours pass so slowly.

Perhaps it is in the 'dark night of the soul' in Psalm 30 that David comes to terms with the sinfulness of his confidence in his own ability and decisions. We can all say we have been there. Read this Psalm and celebrate with David as he proclaims, vs. 11, "You have turned my mourning into dancing and vs. 12 "That my glory may sing your praise and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever.

Blessings on your day!
