Sorrow and mourning are inevitable parts of life and are easier to face when death is understandable. We all have a time when our Father will call us back to him, but when that time comes far before when we expect, there is little that can be said or done to understand it. And without understanding, we stay in our sorrow. Moving forward seems unattainable, and sometimes, unappealing. Clinging to sorrow, as painful as it is, sometimes makes us feel closer to those we’ve lost. When things seem least understandable and our sorrows insurmountable, Jesus is near to us. He proclaimed of the Kingdom of Heaven, "Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh." There is little anyone can say or do in times of great sorrow, but the first step we can all take is to trust in the blessings of the Lord. Trust in the Lord will lead to understanding one day, whether on this earth or when we meet him in Heaven. Today, pray for those who are experiencing sorrow and if you are experiencing it yourself, trust in the coming blessings of the Lord.
“Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh." — Luke 6:21
