It is funny when we look at the teachings of Jesus. It seems an upside down world. We think we are blessed when everything is going ok. Perhaps we are. But the problem that can occur is when everything is going ok, we forget God, for we become self-sufficient. Only when things start to go a bit wrong, we wake up to God, and a lot of the time we blame God.
I believe that when we are sad, broken or mourning over loss, God is there. He will comfort us! This is just not for ourselves but for those around us too. Have you ever been in a situation when someone you know losses someone close. We want to be there for them, to comfort them. This is what our God is like. It will still be a place of pain, will take time, and be many questions, some of them never answered. But we are blessed by God with comfort.
