He will once again fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. —Job 8:21 (NLT)
No more hurt—He carries me above tragedy’s haunting refrain.
No more weakness—I may feel weak, but when I yield to Him, I’m strong.
No more fear—He gives unshakeable faith to trust Him.
No more hiding—He always finds me behind my false wall of protection.
No more turmoil—He brings peace and rest when all around is in flight.
No more struggle—He smooths the rough places that I cannot level.
No more rejection—I am accepted in spite of my failures.
No more despair—He encourages what I cannot fathom.
No more sadness—He wipes every tear from my eyes.
No more am I alone—He restores my heart to beat with His.
He once again fills my mouth with laughter.
I shout for joy. I am loved.
