Proverbs of a 38 yr old man
Joy is coming. Joy is near. Oh LORD, give me back my joy again; you have broken me now let me rejoice.
Give me again the joy that comes from your salvation, and make me willing to obey you. Their is timeless truth that you Jesus speaks to us: You said to your disciples, "You shall weep and mourn and the world will rejoice, and you will have sorrow, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again; then you will rejoice, and no one can rob you of that joy. Jesus has risen, risen in our hearts! He has brought us back to life from the dead of our sins. I will delight in knowing I was born again in Christ, no one can rob me of that joy. We also have the word of the prophets as confirmed beyond doubt. And you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Yes, Joy is here!
Study Is. 25:10
