The Christian life is in reality a life of solid joy, not empty worldly excitement. Life with God is not pain free but we through fellowship with Christ can see through the veil of sorrows. On the other side of our weeping is joy. We cant see it but God can. Christ himself went through weeping and then joy. You see life in Christ is a celebration, the best is yet to come.
Restore Our Fortunes, O Lord
A Song of Ascents.
1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dream. 2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with shouts of joy; then they said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” 3 The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad.
4 Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like streams in the Negeb! 5 Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy! 6 He who goes out weeping, bearing the seed for sowing, shall come home with shouts of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
