When Darkness Comes

When darkness comes into our lives, it is hard to see the sun. Jesus promised us though that he will be there, even when we do not "feel" it. Sadness, heartache, and loss will not disappear, but Jesus will take them into his hands if we give them to him. He then will hold us and comfort our hurts with his loving arms. In 2 Corthinians 1:4 Paul tells us this: "He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us." Sometimes answers are not what is needed, but understanding love with no words, only arms enfolding us.
Matthew 5:4  Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
