Rejoice
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
PSALM 118:24 NIV

--------------------

Her heart had been shattered. Tears streamed down her cheeks. She thought he had been the man of her dreams. But earlier that evening he dropped a bombshell. Marriage would not be in their future. She felt as though she had just wasted two years of her life. Sitting in a chair late into the night, she stared out the bedroom window at the pitch-black sky. How could she have let her emotions get so out of hand? She focused on the one thing she knew for certain. The sun would rise in the east. And as it did, the reminder of God’s faithfulness allowed her to rejoice.

Have you ever experienced a time when you felt overwhelmed with sorrow? Life can be confusing and painful, and rejoicing with gladness is not always possible. Take heart. The Lord cares. He empathizes with our pain. With the birth of each new day, He reminds us that His mercies are new every morning. He provides sufficient grace and turns our weakness to strength as we trust Him.

Experiencing trials enables us to grow deeper in our relationship with the Lord. We realize that He is enough. Others may leave us, but He never will. He alone becomes the cause of our rejoicing and gladness. Let’s worship our Creator, even in our darkest days.

Dear Lord,
help me rejoice in You regardless of my circumstances. Amen.

Julie’s blog posts and devotionals are an extension of her journaling that begun after returning from a medical mission trip to Guyana, South America over 15 years ago. While “out of her comfort zone,” she heard the Lord speak very clearly. Upon returning, she yearned to discern His voice amidst the clamor of everyday life. Julie embarked upon a journey to listen and recorded spiritual insights gleaned from God’s Word in her journal. That journey continues today as she encourages and inspires others to listen and apply God’s truth.
