Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4
God knows our hearts. He wraps His Spirit of strength around those who weep. In moments to draw us closer than before, He reminds us why He knows our EVERY need. He sees inside the wounds of pain and reminds us why His love is eternal.
We will all experience grief at some time in our lives and feel the weight of human sadness. But Jesus will lift the load we bare. He will pick us up, hold us close and pour peace where strength will increase. He will help us remember how it feels to be held. He will help us find comfort and give us courage to remember how to trust.
Christ will comfort us. He will prepare us to faithfully believe in His power to save. He will guide us where we experience the love of mercy and grace. And He will remind us of His sacrifice so we will not forget, the trip we live will lead us to the Father.
Dear God, Thank you for the power of Your love. When times are difficult and we cannot walk on our own, help us learn to recognize we are being carried by You. We will trust You all the days of our lives and find comfort in the arms of Jesus. While we are cradled in care, we will feel the peace that passes all understanding and gratefully recognize why love bears all things. Amen
