This Pain is for your Gain

This pain is for your gain. This sorrow will turn to joy. The seeds sown in tears will reap in joy. There is a time to live and a time to die, a time to laugh and time to cry. Your sorrow will last for a season. I have a greater reason for the season. Don't loose hope and don't loose heart. Everything lost shall be found and returned. There is a great returning. I am returning that which was lost, I am returning that which was taken, I am returning the direction of the hearts. There is hope again, watch as it springs up, watch as it overtakes the dry ground of dispair and sorrow. Hope will arise to new life and bring joy again to those who mourn. I have seen and heard the great affliction of my people, I have seen and heard the sorrow of their hearts. I am moved at their great suffering. My heart has been turned by there great sorrow. Therefore I will bring to them a great return and reward. I will cause them to hope again in me. I will reward their faithfulness with much joy! Though sorrow may last for the night, Joy comes in the morning. Joy is on her way! 

Joel 2:12 Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:2:13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.2:14 Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God? 

Joel2:17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?2:18 Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.2:19 Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen: 

Joel2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. 

Psalm 126: 5They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Psalm 30: 5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
