I was listening to my CD by Shane and Shane and this song came on at the end, and of course I started bawling my eyes out in view of the trial the Lord has seen fit to allow in my life---namely the abandonment of two of our grown daughters (plus two grandchildren). Such pain, and seeming death of hopes.
Holy Spirit speaks and says, "I love you and I am with you---always. Bring joy to My heart and worship me in your grief and loss. I will more than make it all up to you." My tears were no longer of sorrow, but of sweet communion with my Jesus.
It will be worth it all.
