But only the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the LORD will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them and sorrow and sighing will flee away.

Isaiah 35:10

Isaiah 35:10

I woke up with a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach… my wedding ring was gone.

The night before, I went for a midnight swim in the pool to cool off in the summer heat.

Suddenly I had a thought to check my ring, probably prompted by Holy Spirit. It was really loose, which was odd because my fingers swell in the heat, not shrink.

I kept my finger gripped on the ring as I cooled off in the water.

In the morning, I remembered my ring and checked my hand. It was gone. Immediately I searched in and around my bed, while my husband went to look for it at the pool.

The ring wasn’t anywhere. I was devastated.

I went down to my worship room to lament (i.e. whine) to the Lord. It seemed to be that this was yet another loss in a long list of recent disappointments.

I sat down at my desk and looked at my Bible. It was open to Isaiah 35, and on the pages of scripture was my ring… as if it was carefully placed there.

I cried.

The Lord reminded me that He was married to me and that he was going to honor his marriage vow. All his promises are more than the problems I was facing. He was bringing me back from despair and he was crowning me with Everlasting Joy.

Everlasting Joy worship flags remind you that despair is not your domain. God is faithful and no matter where you are, He is bringing you back, and you have a crown of joy on your head.
