Weeping Endureth a Night

Today I read Psalms 26 - 30.  A phrase stood out to me in chapter 30.  David said that weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.  This reminds me a lot of what the Lord told Joseph Smith when he was in Liberty Jail, that his suffering would be but a small moment.  It is really easy to lost perspective in this life when our sense of time is warped and we can lose sense of the eternities and what is really important.  Our focus should be on things that last for eternity, not for the things of this world.  When we forget that is when we have sorrows of our own making.  If we remember to focus on the things that are truly important, then we will pass our trials with flying colors.  Until tomorrow.
