You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever. Psalm 30:11-12
While doing my personal bible study I saw this scripture and it has described my feeling toward my God this morning. Sometimes it is hard for me to express my love for God in my own words...Sometimes when I think about the goodness of God My eyes water and my heart overfills with joy and a passion to just praise his Holy name. God has already done so much for me that just that alone is enough to praise him. I know this is true for you also. Sometimes when we are in prayer we have to pray his words. Sometimes our own words cannot get the breakthrough we need, that presence we need from him in that moment. David was a nam after God's own heart! He wanted to do whatever it was God wanted. He wanted to think like him, talk like him, and be all that God desired him to be. No wonder Samuel went through about 13 sons before he found the one God spoke of that was after his heart. Sure they all had the looks, the physical stature, but God said to look at none of these because these things I have refused. 1Samuel 16:6-7 For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance but the Lord looks at the "heart". When God looks at your heart and see it is beating the same beat as his, then will he begin to turn everything around for you. Let his presence, his goodness, he mercies, his grace turn your mourning into dancing! Sure life throws us things unexpected, not wanted, and totally unfair but Do like David did and dance your way out of mourning, and let him clothe you with gladness! Don't be silent about the goodness of God! Share it today with someone. Just like someone who will read this today needed to hear this goodness because they are going trough something. So is it that someone who is reading this can be reminded to share and help someone at work, at home, during a lunch meeting, during church, at the school you attend, your kids school, everywhere! Someone needs to know that although there are things for me to mourn about, I will dance, I will praise, I will thank him because God is good and all the time and all the time God is good! psalm 23 John 10:11-18!
