Joy in the Morning

Joy! Shouldn’t we all be striving for joy? Joy for ourselves. Joy for others. This simple, stunning card made me think of Joy in the Morning, a beautiful worship song by Tauren Wells. Here’s the first verse:

Everything happens for a reason, but you don’t know what you don’t know
And you’ll never have peace if you don’t let go of tomorrow
‘Cause it ain’t even faith till your plan falls apart but you still choose to follow, uh
If it doesn’t make sense right now, it will when it’s over

[Chorus]
There will be joy in the morning
There will be joy in the morning
