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!!
