“Need A November” – Day 2

Scripture Reading:
Psalm 30, NLT
 1 I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me.
      You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.
 2 O Lord my God, I cried to you for help,
      and you restored my health.
 3 You brought me up from the grave, O Lord.
      You kept me from falling into the pit of death. 
4 Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones!
      Praise his holy name.
 5 For his anger lasts only a moment,
      but his favor lasts a lifetime!
   Weeping may last through the night,
      but joy comes with the morning.

 6 When I was prosperous, I said,
      “Nothing can stop me now!”
 7 Your favor, O Lord, made me as secure as a mountain.
      Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.

 8 I cried out to you, O Lord.
      I begged the Lord for mercy, saying,
 9 “What will you gain if I die,
      if I sink into the grave?
   Can my dust praise you?
      Can it tell of your faithfulness?
 10 Hear me, Lord, and have mercy on me.
      Help me, O Lord.”

 11 You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing.
      You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy,
 12 that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
      O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!

I am thankful…
  • That God’s plan of redemption includes restoration.
  • For fresh-cut flowers.
  • For the right and opportunity to vote this morning.
  • For having clean water to drink and enough to eat.
  • For photos!
