The Bible’s Version is Better!

You know that great song “Tomorrow” from the musical Annie? (“The sun will come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there’ll be sun.”) Well, the Bible has that truth beat by several thousand years.

I like these versions better!

  • “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23).
  • “The Lord within her is righteous; he does no wrong. Morning by morning he dispenses his justice, and every new day he does not fail …” (Zephaniah 3:4).
  • “Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens” (Psalm 68:10).
  • “Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress” (Isaiah 33:2).
  • “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5).

You can bet your bottom dollar that with the Lord, there will always be sun, even in the gloomiest of circumstances!
