9/12/11 In Grief, Compassion

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him. It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.,,,Let them sit alone in silence for the Lord has laid it on thm. Let them bury their face in the dust-- there may yet be hope...for people are not cast off by the Lord forever. Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. Lam. 3:25-33

Thoughts: Imagine sitting with those who are have survived a disaster like 911. There is a sense in which those who survive feel guilty. The writer of Lamentations asks us to remember that in the midst of trouble, God is compassionate. God does not cast us ot forever. It is hard to live in hopelessness for long. We are called to remember hope.
