Blessed Are Those Who Mourn

There are times in life that it hurts as we are get thrown around by tragedy and various trials. Hardly the the life we envisioned in our walk with Jesus. Hitting upon rocks as we hurtle out of control, not understanding the whys. All we can do is trust that God knows our way and in the end will make something beautiful.

Jesus proclaimed that He was the fulfillment of this prophecy (Isaiah 61).

“…to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord
for the display of his splendor.”

The surprising beauty God brings out of water thrown against rock.
