You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy. Psalm 30:11, NIV
If you are dealing with sorrow today, I encourage you to find comfort in the Lord and His never-ending love. You can trust in Him. He turns sorrow into gladness! It is His promise to all those who believe.
If you have students or colleagues dealing with sorrow, you can offer them comfort by being Jesus to them, praying for them, and listening to them. They will experience Him through you!
Lord, thank you for the way You bring joy that is not dependent on what’s going on around me. Show me what it looks like to pursue You in the midst of sorrow and show Your joy to my students, especially those dealing with loss, sorrow, or depression.
