Word Filled Wednesday: Comfort
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Comfort. More than anything, I need comfort. My family has suffered a deep loss this week. My wonderful uncle, my mother's brother, passed away on Monday. My heart aches for my aunt, their children, my mother. I just do not know what to do.
I wish I could take away their pain, I wish I could wipe their tears. I wish I could change the reality. I wish, beyond all measure, I could bring them all comfort.
I know beyond all shadow of a doubt, my uncle is in Heaven, with Jesus. He was a caring, loving, generous, godly man, beloved by so many in his community, and really, by everyone who ever met him. I am heartsick by the fact that he is gone, but I am thankful that he is in paradise, and will never be in pain again.
All I can do, is seek comfort in the Lord.
