Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted. – Matthew 5:4 (ESV)
No one is perfect. No one ever has been. Except for Jesus, that is -and He was fully man and fully God, so that puts Him in a special category.
Being imperfect means we are going to make mistakes.
Hurt and get hurt.
Not necessarily out of malice or ill will. But simply because life is imperfect.
When we think of mourning, we think of a widow in black, or someone who has lost a loved one and is grieving. But mourning comes in many different varieties.
We can mourn a relationship gone sour.
We can mourn any loss – a job, a position, you name it.
We can mourn our old home when we move away.
We can mourn bad financial decisions or any number of poor choices.
We are human. We are not perfect.
We are not perfect.
And God – the infinite, all powerful, all knowing Creator and sustainer – knows that.
He knows your weak spots. He knows where you have tripped. He knows where you will fall.
God is bigger than our failures and faults. And He will help youout of every jam. There is no trouble beyond His abilities
God is love. Trust in His love. Rest in Him.
Tonight, stop worrying. Start praying. Start trusting. Expect the Lord to move in your life, and rest in Him.
