You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.
What do you do when sorrow and loss overwhelm you and those you love? How do you deal with the loss of someone you love...especially when it was so unnecessary? What do you do with loss beyond emotions?
Today, those are the questions in my family as we deal with a loss of someone dear. Most sad, most unnecessary, and so now we grieve. The only consolation for a grieving heart and tearful eyes is a loving Father who knows, who loves, who cares, who understands.
Lord, today would you comfort? Would you hold us close as we grieve the loss of one who shouldn't be gone? I know you care, you showed us that when you wept, and now we weep. We come to you with tears and questions. Comfort, care, calm, and hold us close.
