before the morning...

Do you wonder why you have to
Feel the things that hurt you
If there’s a God who loves you where is He now
Maybe there are things you can’t see
And all those things are happening
To bring a better ending
Someday somehow you’ll see you’ll see

Would you dare would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming
So hold on you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

My friend you know how this all ends
You know where you’re going
You just don’t know how you’ll get there
So say a prayer and hold on cause there’s
good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot
It might take a little time but you’ll
see the bigger picture

Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory
It’s just the hurt before the healing
Oh the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning
{Josh Wilson}

I have heard this song several times but really never listened to the words! When I was driving this morning in my swanky van this song came on again! The words are powerful and full of life for the things to come! I cannot see Ben and my future, I cannot see what is happening in the heavenlys and I cannot see the big picture in it all but I can know that if I allow it the joy of the Lord will come in the morning! There may be hurt before the healing but the promise is there is GOOD for those who LOVE God!
Be blessed today!

Yes, Romans 8:28, "all things work together for good to those that love God and are called according to His purposes."
It encourages me to know that although we may not know how things will work out, it will be for my good and for His glory. Praise God!

What a beautiful song. I know that most of what is going on in our life doesn't make sense right now, but one day it will all come to fruition. I continue to pray for you and Ben. I wish you both a very merry christmas.
