WORDS OF FAITH: The magic of mourning

"You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, so that I might sing praises to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!" ~Psalm 30-11:12

It’s easy to fall into a season of mourning and stay there. Anyone can do that. Anyone can complain, cry, bemoan, curse, question, or become bitter, angry, resentful and depressed when life gets hard… and life can get really, really hard. However, it takes a person of true grit + faith to harness the power of worship amid the worst life has to offer. Worship is the method by which God turns mourning into dancing, and even though you are precious in His sight- it’s not only you He’s thinking of.

So that I might sing praises to You and not be silent,” David wrote. When you turn your lamentations into worship, God can use that! He will turn your mourning into dancing, replacing your tears with joy. If you want to move past this season- worship! The person that can do that is the same person God use to change the world- and He’ll start with your own life!
