Joy Comes in the Morning
I've known that sorrow can't last forever, but when you're going through something that seems so difficult, the joy seems far away. God I praise you so much for the joy I have right now. You have come through like you always do. Just when I think I can take anymore and I'm at the end of my rope, You show yourself faithful. It's not that I don't know you will come through every time, its just remembering that even in the darkest, hardest times, You haven't forgot about me. In fact, I try to remind myself that you are crying with me, hurting with me, laughing with me, and just with me!!! That, in itself, makes this time seem bearable. You Lord are holy and mighty. Lord you have answered prayers. I see you in everything. I know that joy is given and sorrow is lent. I will keep this joy and hold it tightly. Next week may be different as far as what I'm going through, but right now, I'm thankful for this mountain. Even though it is somewhat a valley because of what's ahead, I know that You let us experience a mountaintop to make it through. Through the valleys and the mountains and everything in between, be glorified. Grayson is one of three sweet children and I know that you are continually growing him and molding him into the person you want him to be. I pray everyday over this boy Lord that you will add to him the wonderful things that make his personality so unique. Give him the qualities that you see fit. I speak life Lord into this child. We ask that you take his precious little body right now and make it completely whole. From the tip of his toes, to the top of his head, form him Jesus. You can do this and I want you to know that I have the faith. I want you to heal him so he can be used for a long time on this earth. Let us train him up to be a man after your heart. He can be used by you on this earth. Ellie and Noah need their little brother to hold and teach and play with. We need our son. Lord hear our prayers.
