Wordy Wednesday

I've been set free. "Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father...Thy compassions they fail not." (from the hymn Great Is Thy Faithfulness)

Those who plant in tears
    will harvest with shouts of joy. 

~ Psalm 126:5

Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. 
~ Psalm 30:5b

A time for everything...
A time to weep and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn and a time to dance. 

~ Ecclesiastes 3:4

I will never forget this awful time,
    as I grieve over my loss.

Yet I still dare to hope
    when I remember this:

The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
    His mercies never cease.
Great is his faithfulness;
    his mercies begin afresh each morning
I say to myself, “The Lord is my inheritance;
    therefore, I will hope in him!”

The Lord is good to those who depend on him,
    to those who search for him.
So it is good to wait quietly
    for salvation from the Lord.
...For no one is abandoned
    by the Lord forever.
Though he brings grief, he also shows compassion
    because of the greatness of his unfailing love. 
~ Lamentations 3:20-26, 31-32
