Joys and sorrows

Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows (John 16:33; NLT).

I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God (Isaiah 61:10; NLT).

The Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait quietly for God’s promises to be fulfilled (Romans 15:4; NLT).


Life brings many joys,
And many sorrows –
Lord, help us,
As we do our best to cope.

Ecstatic tears
Can swiftly turn to grief –
Lord, in our darkest times,
Please give us hope.
