Blessed are those Who MOurn

In Matt 5:4, Jesus says, "Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted."  Now this does not just apply to someone who dies but to all things that would cause us to mourn.  We could be mourning for a situation or problem.  Sadness comes in many forms and in many ways.  We could be sad over certain things we think God wants us to give up.  We could be mourning for a lifestyle that is contrary tp God.  Jesus says that when we are ready to give up all for Him in those moments we will find the Lord’s comfort.  Also when we do lose someone who is precious to us the Lord will comfort, strengthen and help us.  Peter reminded His audience in the book of 1st Peter that we are to cast all our cares on Him for He cares for us.  What ever state you find yourself in today remember God is with you.  He will never forsake you.  When you are in a time of sorrow the Lord will be your strength.  He will give you a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness and an oil of joy for mourning.  God will be with you.  A good thing to remember today.
