“It’s good to see her happy,” my husband remarked tonight.
My friend’s valley season is over. Tonight, we danced and laughed with twinkling eyes and hearts come alive.
Yesterday, we dwelled in the pit of despair. We struggled to take a breath and wondered if we’d ever exhale without wailing.
If you are abiding in the house of mourning right now, I want to remind you that it’s not your permanent home.
The Lifter of your head will sweep in soon and replace your sackcloth with a garment of strength and gladness.
No situation is beyond God’s help. He will sustain your breath in the valley and restore your peace.
God is a burden lifter. He shields you from defeat and surrounds you with songs of deliverance.
- A Song of Comfort
- “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18).
- A Song of Cheer
- “When doubts filled my mind, Your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer” (Psalm 94:19).
- A Song of Confidence
- “ So we can say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear.What can mere people do to me?’ ” (Hebrews 13:6).
In His grace He will lift you up from the hellish pit and place you on higher ground above the mire of fear and doubt.
God always heals. He redeems all.
With burden lifted, your eyes will twinkle once again.
Get your dancing shoes ready.
Shout up to your Defender and watch Him thunder down from His holy mountain on your behalf.
Read Psalm 3. Thank God for being your Burden Lifter. Take special note of vs 8 — You are clothed in blessing.
Read Psalm 30. Worship the one who transforms nights of crying your eyes out into days of laughter.
Go to church with me and get your feet tapping to this joyful song. Breathe a praise offering to the One who makes your heart come alive over and over and over again.
