I was not going to write, but suddenly inspiration for an article came to me. Almost like a much needed release, a breath of fresh air. In this life, under the pressures and fallen-ness that is the human condition, we tend to break too easily. There is a great song by Tanya Tucker which talks about being strong enough to bend. That, while not always easy is a great asset.
If as humans we struggle, we need only look and realize that the storms will pass. Look past the storm clouds to the beauty of the dawn. I have been through a tremendous loss recently, but nonetheless I endure. I know who feeds the Sparrow, and I know who watches over me.
I write this, not to focus on my own familial loss and my own grief, but actually to encourage my fellow human beings. I hope that by writing this I can help others have strength in times of sadness. We need not go and hide our heads and grieve in solitude, there is One who understands our pain.
He is Jesus, the Savior, the Master, our Maker and in Him we find sweet Peace.
