7 months ago…

Posted: October 14, 2015 in Uncategorized

It was a long day

Overcast. Rain. Clouds.

Questions.

Surrounded by family and friends, yet alone in my thoughts.

Months, weeks, days, hours, minutes of prayer, fasting and feasting on His Word.

Did He hear me? The shouts from the depths of my soul? 

He not only heard me, He held me. He still holds me.

7 months ago…my heart ached as my grandmother was laid to rest…and my heart ached as my mother took her last breaths.

Tears that refused to form then…fiercely appear now…randomly and unexpectedly…

Tears that remind me…life is precious and short…I must not waste it on the things of this world…

Tears that remind me…Jesus wept…He loved me enough to bear my griefs and carry my  sorrows…He loved me so much that He took my sin upon Himself and He carried it to the cross! 

The One who weeps with me is the very One who wipes away my tears!

Jesus.
