His Promise of Joy

You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.I will lie down and sleep in peace for you alone,O Lord,make me dwell in safety.
Psalm 4:7-8 NIV
...Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning.
Psalm 30:5 NKJV
Rest easy and be at peace,O weary one;Dare to live joyfully you who are in the dark night of the soul;For your Heavenly Father is faithfully watching over you.He who never sleeps or slumbers is ever aware of where you are and what you are facing.He is faithful and He will see you through.You can count on this as surely as the sun rises and sets each day.Joy,His joy will come again.
