Crying In a River

"Come unto Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28 

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine, via Facebook, down in Africa. He had posted a picture of his congregation standing in a river crying.

They were crying because the previous day, their pastor, Pastor O, had been killed in a car accident. They didn't know what to do.

I want to share with you what I told them as these thoughts may help in what you are going through or will be soon: During these "Only God knows why times", let's try to remember that only He knows the big picture and what is best. You are not alone brother, you and yours are in our thoughts and prayers. Our loved one has moved to a beautiful retirement home prepared for him and is filled with joy. We miss him and cry warm tears that cleanse as they are healing medicine from our Lord. But, we shall keep looking up and pressing on in the power of the Spirit, that is what Pastor would want us to do.

We come to You, right now dear Jesus for You have told us: "Come to Me, you who are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Thank You, Amen."
