Psalms 90:15 Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery! Replace the evil years with good.
I love this verse. We have had so much going in the last few of months. It is one of those times where you wonder how things got so hard. How it shouldn't be, but somehow everything is. It's nothing that so many people don't face themselves but it seems to have just piled up all together. I am in a Lupus flair that just hangs on. My dad is facing yet another back surgery and my brother is having surgery next week and my husband the next. It has all overwhelmed me a bit.
Then today I read this verse. I thought of how gracious, how generous God is, that I can ask for gladness in proportion to my misery. I just need to be in God's will, and ask. I have asked for that gladness this morning...and I have joy in knowing that God answers our prayers when they line up with His word. One of my favorite things I have learned is that the angels understand God's word and His word sends them into action.
I have written this one down, so I can use it to call down gladness.
