No matter what we face in life, though we sorrow because of our own present sufferings and the sufferings of those we love, we have joy in our salvation that cannot be taken away from us. We rejoice in the LORD, who will turn things around for us, give us joy for our sorrow, and provide for us the hidden treasures of heaven. We may suffer loss, and have great daily needs, but you will supply. What we have from you enriches us, and the spiritual gifts are greater than any earthly gain that will pass away with time and use. We have a permanent position in you. We are blessed, and those blessings that come from you have NO sorrow attached. We bless your name and draw out of the wells of Salvation with great joy this day, as we give you thanks. Amen.
