Sorrow Will Become Joy
Last night, I prayed with Pastor Peter to thank the Lord for the first Kohitsuji no Mure prayer gathering. While praying I saw a vision and received words which were more like a chorus than plain words. A great number of people were praising the Lord, raising their hands high. Where was it? Why were there so many people? It looked like the world seen through the whitish veil.
Leave joy as joy.
Joy will become life.
Leave sorrow as sorrow.
Sorrow will become joy.
I will pour out life.
The life of the Lord will overflow.
The flow of My life will never stop nor run out.
The life of the Lord will never end.
In the last days I will pour out My life.
O the Lord shall come!
Until the last day My life will flow.
O we shall praise the Lord!
I wonder if this is a praise song that I have heard somewhere before. It was a simple praise, and the words were not especially poetic. The Lord was in the midst of praise, and the people were as if having a dialogue with Him. How strange!
Meanwhile, white clouds were flowing above them, and a triangular cloud descended diagonally across the sky. I felt the Lord was on the cloud, though only the cloud was visible. That cloud was much whiter than other clouds. It descended like an aircraft. I wonder where I was.

My child in the light,
walk with the light.
My joy overflowing from Me fills you.
My peace born in Me dwells in you.
My love flowing out of Me heals you.
In the prayer with Pastor Peter I saw myself praising the Lord in joy, surrounded by beautiful light. Something warm touched my heart, and my entire heart became hot. I was enveloped by the warmness and gentleness as if being embraced.
“Praise the Lord.
O my soul, praise the Lord.
All that is within me, praise the Son of God,
Pastor Peter’s prayer resounded in me, and warmed the depth of my heart. The profound joy of praise, the serenity in His life, and peace . . . This is what I want to share with many people.
How deep the world of prayer is! It is the source of blissful joy and abundant life. I am overwhelmed by the sure reality of love that is derived from the cross.
I wish to stay in this world forever. It is the peacefulness in His light, the gentleness in the wind of His life, and the warmness in His love.
I am truly grateful to know such a communion with the Lord.
