March 20, 2017 – Psalm 30:4

Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones!
Praise his holy name. Psalm 30:4

Have you ever wondered the why of a song bubbling up from our hearts?  It is from the Joy of the Lord!  The Lord who has always been, the Lord who created Heaven and Earth, the Lord who is the same from everlasting to everlasting brings us the reason to sing.

Loving Him, obeying Him brings us His Joy. When we serve Him, love Him only, we praise Him in song.  I remember a childhood song, It’s bubbling, It’s bubbling, It’s bubbling in my heart, There’s singing and laughing since Jesus made me whole…Folks can’t understand it, How can I keep it quiet? It’s bubbling, bubbling, bubbling, Bubbling, bubbling, day and night! 

What is it like when we disobey or ignore God? He who created a beautiful world because He Who loves us wants to see us give Him glory!  His favor, his kindness, and love will last a lifetime and never run out.  Not just in our brief time on earth, but a forever lifetime with Him. His mercies are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:23.

No matter how hard we cry at night — it is the light in the morning that gives us hope and the joy of a new day.  So it is with our lives.  No matter how difficult life may be at times – we have the Hope and Faith of everlasting Joy of being Home with Jesus in our New Day in Heaven.

The song, I Can Only Imagine, contains these lyrics of our Joy in the Morning. I can only imagine What it will be like –  When I walk By your side. I can only imagine, What my eyes will see – When Your face is before me.

For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning. Psalm 30:5
