We all go through seasons of struggle and seasons where we're dealing with an illness, loss of a loved one, a relationship didn't work out, we don't understand, doesn't seem fair. It's easy to think that the suffering, the struggle, the weeping is the way it's always going to be. I met a young couple, they were in town for treatment at the medical center, and he had just been diagnose with a very serious illness. As they held their little children they wept, and wept so devastated. God never promised that we wouldn't have seasons of weeping, seasons of struggle.
But Jesus said in Luke 6:21, "Blessed are those who weep now, for in due time you will laugh". The promise God makes us is: the suffering is only a season, the weeping is not how your story ends. You're going to laugh again. God sees what you're going through, he knows what wasn't fair, the lonely nights, the pain, the heartache. The scripture says, "He's collected all of your tears". You may have felt alone, but he's been right there with you. The good news is: he's not going to leave you in suffering, he's not going to leave you brokenhearted, weighed down with burdens.
