Each week I hope to post a Bible verse not only to memorize but also to apply to my life with extra emphasis. As a part of Day 1 of the Joy scripture plan in my Bible app, Psalm 126:5 was short and sweet but just what I needed. There are times when life gets so hard that serving the Lord takes persistent effort. There are moments when your sorrows feel so heavy that you don't know how you'll ever get out of bed to carry them through another day. When you seek the Lord and praise him every day, trust in him that you will be healed and blessed, know that he will never forsake you. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. The Lord has made a promise to you that when you glorify him even when you feel hopeless and heartbroken, he will bless you with joy unspeakable. Healing is a journey and when you follow the guidance of the Lord, you'll never be left wandering; you'll know exactly where each step is taking you... and the destination is JOY.
