Psalm 30: Back From The Brink

In Psalm 30, David tells of a brush with death that he experienced - pleading with the Lord to pull him through.  Like many other psalms, it includes thanks to God for His faithfulness, and a promise to praise Him for His deliverance.  My favorite parts of this psalm include the glimpses of God's grace and majesty seen through the eyes of desperation: "His anger is but for a moment, his favor is for a lifetime.  Weeping may linger for the night, but joy comes with the morning," and "You have turned my mourning in to dancing; you have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy."  We have a good God!!
