Psalm 28:7 “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.  My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.”

Life is made up of highs and lows.  It is unavoidable, and certainly 2020 hit many low points for a lot of people, and especially for me.  Sometimes tears blind our eyes, and we can’t see the way ahead.  But we must keep going.  When our hearts are broken and our eyes fill with tears, our first inclination may be to go back to bed, to give up.

There is a song from years past named “Singing in the Rain.”  When the rains come into your life and everything seems dark and dreary, keep walking – don’t stop.  Nothing can prevent the rains from coming, but, thorough faith in God and with His power working in us and for us, we can learn to sing in the rain.  Heartache breeds bitterness, resentment and self-pity.  But when the heart is trusting in Him, the resulting song in your heart will dry your tears.  Remember Easter morning follows Good Friday!

Dear Heavenly Father, as we go through these difficult days, please warm our hearts and dry our tears so we can go forth praising You with unending love and abiding faith.
