“Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.” (Psalm 30:5) The night seems long and trying, but there is hope for morning. In the night, the warmth radiates away from us, but in the morning comes the warming sun. The darkness even hides the blessings of God and the beauties of His creation, but morning light reveals what God is doing.
In the night, our eyes are useless in the dark. Only the immediacy of our situation falls within view. That limited vision attacks our hope. But it is the flooding in of sunshine that reveals the distant, the resources, and the reality of our hope.
What can we say in the night? “Hold on, my Child. Joy comes in the morning. And that joy is heightened by the hope you held to in the dark of night.
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13.
The end of faith is reality, filled with Joy. The end of hope is reality, filled with joy. But love never ends. The result of the constancy of God’s love is joy.
