You turned my lament into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth
and clothed me with gladness,
so that I can sing to you and not be silent.
Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
There is such hope in these verses! But a dose of reality as well.
In this world we will have cause to lament. There will be seasons of life where we are mourning, and sometimes that mourning will be so intense it might be easy to forget this promise.
He WILL turn our sorrow into dancing.
He WILL remove our sackcloth.
He WILL clothe us with gladness.
And we will praise Him forever!
Words to cling to when hard times hit.
