“For His anger is but for a moment, his favor is for life. Weeping may endure for a night (I’m sure we’ve all had sleepless, weepy nights), but joy comes in the morning.”

Joy Comes in the Morning

You may be in a time of sorrow, but joy will eventually come and take its place in your heart. Here’s a word from Dawson.

What is it you want? If you were to ask yourself, “What do I want to make my life better – what do I need?” How would you answer?

How about the joy that comes in the morning?

David said this, “For His anger is but for a moment, his favor is for life. Weeping may endure for a night (I’m sure we’ve all had sleepless, weepy nights), but joy comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5)

I promise if you deal with whatever your issues are and look to the Lord for His strength and guidance, you’ll find some joy in the morning. That, my friend, is priceless! So, my prayer for every person, whatever they’re going through, whatever they’ve done or haven’t done, maybe they’re the victim, maybe they’re not, whoever they are, that there will be joy for them in the morning. Listen and see if you can find some joy for you!

Joy in the morning…what’s that worth!

Your friends,
The Dawson Team

PS – If you have not already done so, you may still leave a remembrance about Dawson in the comment section below.  His family, and all of us have taken great comfort in the many kind words.

  1. Many years ago I went through a deep dark period of my life. I was running from the Lord, I left my family, I was living alone, and crashing and burning. One dark night, as I was driving around aimlessly, I tuned in the radio, and I heard this guy talking hope to hopeless kids. It was Dawson McAllister. He was getting through to my hardened heart, and at 50 something years, I started desperately clinging to his broadcasts. It was my Lord God Christ Jesus pursuing me and crying out for me To Come Back to Him. I am eternally indebted to, and will never forget Dawson McAllister and the way he humbly allowed God to use him to save my life.

  2. Every week I look forward to the Dawson McCallister email from Dawson sharing the journey of his family’s journey through Fulton’s injury because I, too, experienced a traumatic head injury 17 years ago this year and can relate in a unique way to what Fulton experiences. By God’s enormous grace I was given a miraculous healing (can’t taste or smell though, could be/should be worse), but I remember the hospital stay and not being able to talk because of a trach and I can understand the inability to communicate verbally. I am grateful for Dawson sharing his side of the journey, too, because he was able to find God’s presence in every day experiences and I need to see God’s hand in ALL things too. Thank you for sharing the intimate journey of the family and I am so, so sorry of the loss you are feeling. I will continue to lift up Fulton, Ruth Hill, and the family at Dawson McCallister to our Father in prayer.

  3. I have read books and encouraging from Dawson for years. Even I was working a lot and my emails were full, I’d stop to read how Fulton was doing. I prayed for this ministry and Dawson and his family for years. He has been such an encouragement to me, especially the last 3 years. We lost our youngest son in a car accident 3 years ago. I will continue to pray for the ministry and the McAllister family.

  4. Ron and I were sad and heartbroken upon learning of Dawson’s passing. We know in our hearts that he is rejoicing with the Lord and Savior he served so beautifully throughout his life. We have very fond memories of Dawson and Addison coming out to Rapid City and the Black Hills of South Dakota just a couple of years ago. We had such fun giving them a tour of this beautiful area of our country and enjoyed a very sweet fellowship with them. We learned about Fultons slow but steady progress in developing relationships where he lives and the wonderful care he receives there. Fulton’s newest communication equipment is such a blessing and Dawson reported that Fulton’s first words that he communicated to him were “I Love You”. What a blessing.
    We have prayed for The Dawson McAllister Association and the wonderful outreach this ministry has had on young men and women as they struggle in today’s
    challenging times. God has most certainly had His hand of blessing over this ministry and we are so heartened to know it will continue to reach out to young people uninterrupted.
    We extend our deepest sympathy to Ruth Hill, Fulton, Gene and Addison. You all will be in our hearts and prayers.
