Finding Joy

Read Psalm 30:1-12


I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up, and did not let my foes rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me. O Lord, you brought up my soul from Sheol, restored me to life from among those gone down to the Pit.

Sing praises to the Lord, O you his faithful ones, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment; his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning.

Psalm 30: 1-5 (NRSV)


A few years ago, Daniel Valencia Guevara from Mexico, felt uncomfortable in the workplace due to the attitudes and actions of her boss and some colleagues. The situation got so bad Daniel was at the point of quitting her job.

Daniel started to read the Bible and The Upper Room daily devotional meditations and gave her life to Christ. She read other people's stories of situations like hers in the daily meditations. she learned she was not the only person going through difficult times. But God speaks to each of us in different ways. She learned to pray, first giving thanks to God for all things and then turning her concerns over to God.

Today, her boss is no longer with the company, the working relationships with her colleagues has changed, and Daniel received recognition for her years of service. What she knows for sure is that God never abandons us and can change our morning into dancing.


Prayer: Blessed be your name, o Lord. Thank you for helping us find joy and peace in the many blessings we receive every day, in Jesus' name. Amen.
