Sermon on the Mount: Comfort

4Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” ~Matthew 5

Are you weeping?

Are you sad?

There’s great torment here

To be had

Earth keeps spinning

In circles

And eyes cry tears

That cripples

.

But listen you here

That weep

When it seems there’s no hope

To keep

The Lord Jesus is here

Calling you blessed

The Lord Jesus is here

Calling gold what is tested

The pain is here

It is that time and season

But I promise

There is a reason

And the pain gives birth

To joy

And the tears will give way

All depression destroyed

.

Revelation 7:17:

“For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; ‘he will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.'”

John 16:

19Jesus saw that they wanted to ask him about this, so he said to them, “Are you asking one another what I meant when I said, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me’? 20Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. 21A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. 22So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. 23In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 24Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.
