Consolation

Have you ever been on the verge of tears--when a comment is all it takes to open the emotional floodgates? Have you ever cried yourself to sleep? When your heart is that heavy, there is no reasoning that can lift that burden, no conversation, no words of comfort, nothing that helps. Our heads may say that we have so much to be thankful, that we have to much to do to "meltdown", that we need to just "get over it". But, when we have reached the point that our emotions are raw and our heart, as well as our tear ducts, are full, sometimes we just need to cry.
Last night at church, we sang a song called "Bring Christ Your Broken Life". It is a beautiful song with amazing words. Last night, I think, was the first time I'd noticed these words to the third verse. "Bring Him your weariness, Receive His rest, Weep out your blinding tears Upon His breast. His love is wonderful, His power is great. 'And none that trust in Him, Shall be desolate." Aren't those incredible words? Can you imagine, our Lord and Savior taking us into His arms and soothing us, patting our backs, and stroking our hair as our tears soak His clothing? He comforts us because He loves us and He understands any and all of our pain. He is able to console us simply by His presence. The knowledge that He is always near, that He will never leave us or forsake us and that He understands the overwhelming emotions is great consolation.
The last verse of the song says "Blest Savior of us all! Almighty Friend! His presence shall be ours Unto the end. Without Him life would be How dark, how drear! But with Him morning breaks-and heaven is near!'
Amen
