"O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."
This is awesome. :) The first verses of the selection remind us that God is there to help us heal... physically and spiritually... as we ask for his help. And the last verses very appropriately praise God for helping us so much with things that we couldn't do for ourselves. :) Sometimes yes, we incur his wrath, or we are inconsolable over our sins or a tragic accident. But always, if we look to God, things get better. He favors us when we work at coming back and continuing to learn; he wipes away our tears, and brings us joy. He loves us so much. Today, let's praise him and thank him, and ask for his healing. And let's remember always that no matter how bad it seems to get, God is still in control... and joy will come to us, if we stick with God.
