God turns Mourning into Dancing

Ps 30  Do you ever feel like someone is looking over your shoulder as you pen your daily thoughts in your journal or quiet moments of prayer? As we read this psalm we learn a little about something that David has faced, yet he takes his quiet time to speak from the heart.
