150 Days of Psalms - Psalm 30

When we are in the midst of heartache, when there doesn't seem to be any hope for our future, when the night seems to be closing in around us and we don't see any hope, Psalm 30 is a great Psalm.

It reminds us that weeping may last for the night, but Joy comes in the morning!

Notice the testimony of David.
I will exalt You, LORD, because You have lifted me up
I cried to You for help, and You healed me.
You turned my mourning into dancing;
You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness.

If you are in a sorrowful place right now, read this Psalm through a few times and let the promise of coming joy bring you hope.

Your comments really covered a lot of the feeling of the Psalm. I think the other thing that I noticed was in verses 6 and 7 about "'I will never be moved.' O LORD, by Your favor You have made my mountain to stand strong;" Sometimes it is all I can do to just stand, not even moving forward, just trying to keep from moving backward. It's through God's strength that I can do that.
