The Lord is the great transformer. He can turn things around on our behalf. David praises God for saving him from the grave, for healing him, turning his sadness into celebration, turning his sorrow into joyful dancing.
In 2006, I had a season of severe migraines. I had one every three days like clock-work. Most of the time I would have to be in bed, in a dark room for at least a day. In the meantime, I still had to manage my job and my family. I was under the care of a neurologist who, with medication, made the migraine cycle less debilitating but the frequency didn’t change. One weekend, I was at a retreat with some friends and they laid hands on me to pray for healing. I had a migraine, at the time, and it was still there when they finished their prayer. I went home and took a long nap. When I woke up the migraine was gone and I haven’t had one since. Jesus healed me! It was like I was set free from a migraine prison. He turned my sadness into celebration!!
I thank you from my heart, and I will never stop singing your praises, my Lord and my God!
See you tomorrow for Psalm 31
