Recently I heard the Lord say "FROM SADNESS TO GLADNESS!" and I saw the Lord leading many who have been carrying great sadness in their hearts for many reasons into deeper intimate encounters with Him where His love and comfort was going to heal the sadness that has crippled many.

I saw many in the body of Christ "putting on a brave face". Many were feeling like they had to just "push down the sadness" and keep decreeing and holding on in faith. I believe we should ALWAYS be in a place of decree and living by faith, but I saw many had been trying to not face the hidden sadness because it may mean "lack of faith". I saw Jesus come, in His beautiful way, and He was inviting them into a place of rest, laying theirs heads on His chest and He was inviting them to "let it out".

The Lord is wanting to heal the sadness that many are carrying. The Lord is wanting to heal the sadness that has been hidden within hearts. Sadness that has been recognised and spoken, and sadness that has been hidden and unspoken.

I saw the Lord speaking such love, such encouragement and such life over His people. Wave after wave of His Spirit and His Word was bringing healing and life.

Over these ones carrying the sadness I heard the Lord make a decree over their hearts and lives "NOW.. FROM SADNESS TO GLADNESS".

Psalm 30:11 was the banner and promise:

"Then He broke through and transformed all my wailing into a whirling dance of ecstatic praise! He has torn the veil and lifted from me the sad heaviness of mourning. He wrapped me in the glory garments of gladness." (The Passion Translation)

I prophesy over those of you who have been carrying sadness, a deep, beautiful time of healing, refreshing, rejuvenating, comforting season of encounters with God are upon you that is going to TURN the SADNESS to GLADNESS.

There is a new season of GLADNESS upon you, where all your heart has known is SADNESS, now your heart shall know GREAT GLADNESS in His presence.

I prophesy over you that even before the end of 2017, there will be significant breakthrough of the sadness you have carried. There will be GREAT breakthroughs in 2018, but I prophesy significant shift of this sadness before this year is out. I prophesy there will be great healing to the wounding, the trauma, the sadness, the wailing you have been carrying and you will see Him break through and transform the wailing into a WHIRLING DANCE OF ECSTATIC PRAISE!!!

How you see Him, how you see His heart, how you hear His voice, how you experience His love, comfort and healing is going to lead you into a whole new level of joy and great praise that you will not keep silent about. Where the sadness has stolen your song….A new song will burst forth from within you of praise to God.

"How could I be silent when it’s time to praise you? Now my heart sings out loud, bursting with joy, a bliss inside that keeps me singing. I can never thank you enough". – Psalm 30:12 (The Passion Translation)

  1. Thank You SO MUCH For Releasing This WORD Fom GOD!!! You Can Not Know How Much I NEEDED THIS!!!!! GOD BLESS You & Your Family Tremendously!!

  2. My deepest pains involve my children and my broken family. We all have been traumatized by horrific sexual assaults and can’t seem to see a clear way out. I’ve prayed for reconciliation and a spirit of grace and supplication to be on each one that we might find true healing of hearts this Christmas.

  3. Your prophetic word is one of a few that God has confirmed to me. I had read your post days ago as I have been in a season of battles to keep my joy and stand in my identity in Christ. Then yesterday I ask the Lord to speak to me and I flipped open my Bible and read Jeremiah 32 and 33 seeing how He loved the people of Israel. I didn’t see a verse that stood out to me in that moment, but I felt I needed to see how God had plans to restore His people and He does that today. Then I opened a book I had been reading called “Whisper” and the chapter scripture was Jeremiah 33:10-11. I got the point then that the Lord was whispering restored joy in my spirit. God is turning sadness into joy and gladness for His faithful who have contended in the storms of life! Praise the Lord! Have a wonderfully well, and blessed and favored day by the Lord!

  4. I know what it’s like to carry sadness and anxiety from trauma and other past life events. So many many years wasted being sad and burdened. Your prophesies are amazing and Jesus indeed will turn our sad into glad. I have been released from the past and have peace and joy because of what Jesus did for me. This happened only a month ago. Thank you, Lana, for sharing the Lord’s message! Such an encouragement and I pray that people will find peace through reading your prophetic word and that they won’t give up.

  6. Thank you Lana, I needed to read that today. I feel so disconnected from everything, and I am missing my parents this time of year, who have passed away. I needed to hear that God is lifting this sadness off of me.

  7. This Word is so on point. Let it be so, in Jesus Name. I receive, I receive. Let it be so. Turn my mourning into dancing, my sadness into JOY. In Jesus Name.

  8. Thank you Lana for your spiritual beauty.The wonderful words from The Lord are always coming at the perfect time. Let us rejoice in his healing words. Thank you very much.

  9. Beautiful, thank you for that encouragement. How the Lord really sees our hearts, He sees behind the masks and calls us to Himself to lay our burdens down and put on His garment of praise. Bless you for sharing.
