Jesus Wept

Put a Bible verse on FB yesterday which said something about singing for joy and being glad all our days. To which my friend Liz wrote, “In my dreams.”

I like Liz. She helps me keep it real.

Face it. There is plenty of hurt in this world. We pray, “Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven,” because His kingdom has not yet come, and His will is not yet done on earth as it is in heaven.

And we don’t help this suffering by always pasting a smile on our faces, as if to say that hurt isn’t really hurt. Sometimes, the most Christian response is to follow in the steps of our Lord.

“Jesus wept.”
