Sometimes, we are sad. Maybe we lose something we love, or break something that was precious to us. Other times, our feelings might be hurt by unkind words or deeds, or we may have to say goodbye to someone or something that is dear to us.
When our hearts feel broken, it it uncomfortable to others, especially those who love us. They want to help us feel better! They want us to understand that we are still loved. God, too, wants us to know that He hears our cries. He knows when we are sad. And while He says its okay for us to be sad for a time, He promises that we will be comforted.
God comforts His children in many different ways. It could be a hug from a loved one, a reminder of a good memory, or even a well timed rainbow in the sky! If you are sad, never fear. God knows. He loves you, and He wants to comfort you. Tell him about your sadness; He wants to help, so be on the lookout for His comfort!
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” Matthew 5:4(NIV)
