Prayer Journal: Day 303

Day 303

Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. – Psalm 126:5 NKJV

The Lord doesn’t prevent illness and hardship from falling upon us, because He teaches us lessons through our trials. Jesus experienced much suffering during His lifetime, but He also felt joy and peace, probably when He spent time praying and meditating alone in the early mornings.

Before we react to things that come our way, we can pause and decide not to respond. In reacting, we sometimes sap ourselves of joy and cause unnecessary grief. Other people don’t always understand how their words can impact us in a negative way. For that reason, we need to focus on the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, kindness, tenderness, and self control. It is a meditative practice to focus back on our God-given breath and allow ourselves to mute the dissonant outside world. Amen.
