DAILY READINGS: Deut. 1:1-46; Eccl. 1:1-2:11; Luke 6:1-19

Why is thy countenance sad, seeing thou art not sick? this is nothing else but sorrow of heart. Nehemiah 2:2

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance. Proverbs 15:13

A time to weep, and a time to laugh. Ecclesiastes 3:4

Certainly in the life of the believer there will be heart rending issues that will cause tears to flow and sorrow that will be reflected in our countenance. But “joy cometh in the morning” (Ps. 30:5) and we are able
to smile and rejoice in our Saviour’s provision. Even in our sorrows we know He is near and cares for us. “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice” (Phil. 4:4). —W. H. G.

Rejoice and be glad! For our Lord is on high;
He pleadeth for us on His throne in the sky! —Horatius Bonar

Jeeva Sandesham – Psalms 57:2
