I Will Change Your Sadness Into Joy

 

 

You and I can both be overcome with deep sadness.  This sadness can be caused by many things, what is happening to our children, our parents, or even things which we can’t control in our own lives.

God knows what you are going through whatever the cause of your sadness.  He feels your pain.  It does not matter how empty your hands are of your own resources or your own lack of sufficiency, or how bleak things seem, God is involved, in charge, and in control.  He knows how to heal your sadness and bring back joy and gladness to my heart and to your heart.

You probably saw the picture and read the poem of Footprints in the Sand written by Mary Fishback. “Lord, you said once I decided to follow you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I noticed that during the saddest and most troublesome times of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed You the most, You would leave me.” He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you never, ever. During your trials and testings when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.”

At times you might be so overwhelmed you can’t feel his presence and you wonder “where is God?”  He is there right beside you.  When Jesus was dying on the cross the darkness around and in him was so dark he cried out to his Father, “Why have you forsaken me?”

When your hands are empty of your own resources and your own sufficiency, He is a faithful provider and will lead you back step by step to experience His joy.

Love to you,

Ruth
