Mourning into Dancing

Mourning into Dancing

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

The Bible tells us, “there is a time for every event under heaven.” Both a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and dance (Ecclesiastes 3:1-4).

Yes, there are times when mourning is appropriate. Yet we easily can become absorbed in the emotions of the moment and wallow in sadness. We can become saturated with anger, bitterness, fear, or worry.

David discovered that God had the power to change everything. He could lift his burdens and turn his moments of mourning into times of celebration. He did not have to stay sad or depressed.

Everything might seem dark, but God could shine His light and change hopelessness into hope. Instead of dreading his circumstances, he could be confident. God could fill his life with so much radiance that he would burst out in songs of praise. Instead of wallowing in anguish, he could be filled with thanksgiving.

No matter what is happening in your life, remember that God loves you. He has a plan for you. He is God, and He is still on the throne. Commit every situation to Him, no matter how big or small. No matter what obstacles you face or how hopeless everything may seem, He can give you hope.

Allow God to fill your heart with joy and confidence. Don’t allow circumstances to control you, but trust in Him. Celebrate His goodness! Let Him turn your mourning into dancing!
