Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh...

I will be glad and exult in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

The gladness in my heart has been sucked out of me. Sorrow and anger have filled the beds that gladness and peace once curled up in. these feelings are not welcome in my place of peace. they do not have an invitation or a seat but it seems they work their way in along with being discouraged, overwhelmed and alone.

I am constantly be served with reminders that this is not our home. That these bodies are merely containers for our souls. We are meant to face things that make us long for perfection. Things that make us know there is a day coming with no hurting, no sickness and where we will walk as one with our Savior – living in a state of completion. No longing or questions of what is next. But where we will live in the present moment, never being able to fully absorb the glory and greatness of it all. And I will laugh and sing praise. oh how i long for the day.
