Comfort For Those Who Mourn – by Stephanie M. White

Matthew 5:4 NIV
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

For the most part, we do not equate mourning with blessing; however, God does. This may seem like an oxymoron, but God does know what He is talking about.

The blessing in mourning is the comfort that we can receive from God if we are willing to accept it. When we are mourning, God can speak to us in a way that we may not respond to at any other time in our lives. When we are grieving we feel broken. This brokenness leaves us desperate for God’s touch. We must remember that although we may feel broken, we are never beyond repair. Our Heavenly Father is reaching out and He can heal us and He can restore us.

In the throes of mourning, comfort may seem elusive, but comfort is a process – it takes time. “Comforted” was translated from a Greek word that means to call near. This word also means to invite, to console, to call for, and to beseech. This word demonstrates God’s desire to heal our broken heart by drawing us close to Him. He is calling you near. He longs for you to draw close to Him and receive His comfort daily – time and time again.

If your heart is broken you may be mad at God. This feeling is real and it needs to be dealt with immediately. God is the only answer to your grief; He is the only One who can heal your broken heart. This anger we may be feeling is of the flesh and it is keeping us from God. Go to Him and talk to Him. Tell Him how you really feel. Meditate on Scripture that expresses God’s love for you. Realize that you may not understand why you are suffering loss, but God does have a plan. Continue in His Word and discover His plan for you.

God wants to console you – He wants to comfort you; but, you must allow Him access into your broken heart. You are not suffering loss because God is bad; you are suffering loss because death is part of life in this fallen world (Psalm 89:48).

God is calling us near; He is inviting us to cling to Him. When we begin to answer this call, we begin to find that this is where we are meant to be at all times. Clinging to God is not just for times of grieving; clinging to God should be our way of life. This lifestyle is the blessed life! The life that is dependent on Christ is blessed indeed!



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
