Joy comes in the morning?

Despite our fears and anxieties,
God promises joy
Despite our loss and grief
God promises joy
Despite our neediness and lack of resources
God promises joy
Despite ourselves
God promises joy
In the arid places
water will gurgle up
in the barren places
life will sprout
frozen wastes
of hearts and lives
will be lovingly thawed
and nurtured
and infused with joy
We cannot stop it
God infiltrates our best efforts
and our worst
and causes joy to bubble up
in the hopeless places
However unlikely it may seem
Be prepared
to experience joy

(Based on Isaiah 35)
