Recently Pastor Joe read Psalm 30 in the Worship Assembly and it hit home for me... again!
It is a familiar passage that I've trekked through many times. Psalm 30 is marked in my Bible as a "revelation" in 2011 where I had underlined verses 1 and 5(b) and then in March of this year (2013) I wrote this:
"Down deeper and deeper into the gloom of depression I fell, I lifted my eyes in what I thought to be hell, though not a sign of a fiery furnace.
I was overtaken by the chill of a cold dark tomb that I was enclosed like a cacoon. I cried out, "Lord lift me from this pit of despair!"
He answered me before mere man could hear my plea and carried me in His bosom of love,
Lifted me higher and higher 'till at last I was free of the prison of fear,
and onward did my spirit soar to the realm of glory!"
Psalm 30:1 "I will extol you O Lord for You have lifted me up"
Psalm 30:5(b) "His favor is for Life, weeping may endure for a night, but Joy comes in the morning"
