Today's Bible Verse
"For I have given rest to the weary and joy to the sorrowing." Jeremiah 31:25
God gifts rest to the weary and graciously provides joy to the sorrowing.
I don't know if you're anything like me, but in my times of deep sadness and painful sorrowing I didn't always feel rested or joyful.
Instead I experienced sleepless nights and mental anguish.
I can be honest enough to admit that I wasn't praying as much as I was pleading for him to fix it
Does that mean there's something we must do to receive his rest and joy?
Of course he could and he may freely gift it, but isn't it true that during our most desperate times we come to the end of ourselves? We learn that somethings (many things) are beyond our control.
We learn to rely on him.
