In the morning comes

“Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” – Ps 30:5

If you are in a night of trial, think of tomorrow; cheer your heart with the thought of the coming of the Lord. Be patient, for “He comes with clouds descending.” Be patient! The Husbandman waits until He reaps His harvest. Be patient, for you know who has said, “Behold, I come quickly, and my reward is with me, to give to every man according as his work shall be.” Your head may be crowned with thorny troubles now, but it shall wear a starry crown before long; your hand may be filled with cares – it shall sweep the strings of the harp of heaven soon. Your garments may be soiled with dust now; they shall be white in a short time. Wait a little longer. How despicable our troubles and trials will seem when we look back upon them! Looking at them presently, they seem immense; but when we get to heaven, we shall then “with transporting joys recount the labors of our feet.” Our trials will then seem light and momentary afflictions. Let us go on boldly; after the dark of night the morning comes, which is more than they can say who are shut up in the darkness of hell. Do you know what it is to live in the future – to live on expectation – to antedate heaven? It may be dark now, but it will soon be light; it may be all trial now, but it will soon be all happiness. What does it matter if “weeping may endure for a night,” when “joy comes in the morning”? – Spurgeon
