Psalm 126 verses 5-6 are an encouragement to us.
“Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
They who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.”
With Harvest being upon us and thinking of those things we should thank God for, this came from Church Army. For me as for many others there are many things in our lives that bring tears to our lives. Yet even in those times of pain, or loss we receive blessings. I know that for me even in those days when I can hardly stand or move I know that God is there and that I receive His blessing particularly when I help others in there tearful place.
So as its harvest spend a little time just thinking of all the blessings you have.
Now think of all the things you have that others don’t.
Now give thanks to God for all that you have.
Now ask God to help you in your sorrow, ask that He would help you see where He can use you despite your pain and discomfort.
I pray that even though you may hurt, be lost in tears or struggling in any way that as you go through this you will find the blessings that you have from god. I also pray that as you find that blessing it will help lift you up so that you are filled with Joy.
