I tell you the truth, you will weep and mourn over what is going to happen to me, but the world will rejoice. You will grieve, but your grief will suddenly turn to wonderful joy. (John 16:20)
Suddenly. John says that our grief will turn to joy suddenly. That is the power of His grace. Sudden joy. God can transform thorns to brilliant flowers, and grief to sudden joy. Our job is to simply follow Him and trust in His timing.
I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessings. (Ezekial 34:26)
Anticipate the sudden joy that will take the place of grief, grab your timbrels, and get ready to dance with the joyful again!
