Sorrow is a heavy burden to carry, this is why we must be patient with those who carry it; they will get to where they need to be, just give them time.
My God is not a God who forgets His promises. My God is one who fights wars in defense of his children, and His wars are never without hope. My God is a God who moves mountains, and forms the hearts of all men. My God is one who levels the playing field of all hearts, dealing out the grace that not a single one of us deserves. My God is one who sees every woman as both a mother and a daughter. All contradictions, all flaws, all pain.
Within the three days that Christ was in the grave; The world mourned, Heaven prepared a throne-room for the Eternal King of Glory, and hell witnessed the collapse of its empire.
Sometimes in the silence and sorrow of life, Christ is doing His greatest work.
Often I have heard people say, “How good God is! We prayed that it would not rain for our church picnic, and look at the lovely weather!” Yes, God is good when He sends good weather. But God was also good when He allowed my sister, Betsie, to starve to death before my eyes in a German concentration camp. I remember one occasion when I was very discouraged there. Everything around us was dark, and there was darkness in my heart. I remember telling Betsie that I thought God had forgotten us. “No, Corrie,” said Betsie, “He has not forgotten us. Remember His Word: “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His steadfast love toward those who fear Him.” … There is an ocean of God’s love available - there is plenty for everyone. May God grant you never to doubt that victorious love - whatever the circumstances.”
You don’t owe people the person you used to be. You don’t have to talk to people who are speaking to the old you. If they want to drag old you out, and you’ve already left that person behind, they don’t get to talk to you. When you’ve gone from weakness to strength, you don’t owe a show of your former self to someone who just can’t wrap their head around your change.
