Hope in Seasons of Sorrow

How do you hope in seasons of sorrow? We see today two particular things Christians hope in doing seasons when the storms of life rage. Firstly, We hope in the character of Christ. Christ is sovereign and all powerful, he is in control, and he knows exactly how much sorrow we can bear. He promises not to burden us with something which will extinguish our faith. Secondly, we hope in the true healing of our heartbreak. Time may well dull the pain of sorrow but it never fully heals it, we look forward to the time when the Lord God will truly heal our heartbreak as we finish the journey and go to be with Him in heaven. Hope in the character of Christ true healing is what can help us journey with Jesus through hard times. We may well even be surprised by worship in the hardest of times.

Isaiah 42:3

A bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice.

Hebrews 4:15

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Revelation 21:4

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
