Sorrow and Joy

WS-devo_PMSWhen the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, it was as if we were dreaming. Then our mouths were filled with laughter and our tongues with joyful songs. Then the nations said, “The Lord has done spectacular things for them.” We are overjoyed. Those who cry while they plant will joyfully sing while they harvest. The person who goes out weeping, carrying his bag of seed, will come home singing, carrying his bundles of grain. (Psalms 126:1-3, 5, 6 GWT) Zion is the place where God lives. Not just heaven but the hearts of those He's restored. Have you wept and cried out? Know that He hears, and He restores all who trust in Him. A sign of His restoration is joy in a heart that's been broken. ©Word-Strong_2013
