"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted."
Matthew 5:4

Whenever I see someone whose life has been engulfed with grief or pain, I know in my heart that there is great hope for them because of the redemption that is possible through Jesus Christ.

On many occasions God has redeemed my mistakes, misfortunes and misery by allowing me to bring my burdens to the cross and give them to Him. The transformation that results when He gives me an eternal perspective of each situation, with Calvary as the framework from which I can interpret them, is miraculous.

It is my prayer that the Lord will help me intercede for them so that they can have vision to observe their adversity as an opportunity to experience God’s grace, mercy and comfort the same way He has blessed me.
