“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. Our mouths were filled with laughter then, and our tongues with shouts of joy. Then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord had done great things for us; we were joyful. Restore our fortunes, Lord, like watercourses in the Negev. Those who sow in tears will reap with shouts of joy. Though one goes along weeping, carrying the bag of seed, he will surely come back with shouts of joy, carrying his sheaves.”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭126:1-6‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

There are some wonderful seasons of life when the sun seems more radiant, when the stars surely shine brighter. We hold fast to the generosity of God’s gifts given in ”good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over”(Luke 6:38) as we walk through other seasons of devastating loss. He reminds us of His faithfulness to walk with us through “the valley of the shadow of death” so that we do not have to live in fear of the evil all around us. His rod and his staff comfort us and provide us with the hope of restoration to full joy. My friend, do not let go of that hope; He is with you. 🚦
