Κύριος Notes:Blessings Come to the Unexpected


The Day Before Christmas Eve
I wonder about that day on the road to Bethlehem
Mary and Joseph traveling.
The trip not easy and the travel wearing on
With every step the weariness increases.

Yet they continued their journey.
Was it known to them the ultimate reason for their trip?
That Scripture would be fulfilled.
All of their questions were not answered
Only the necessary ones.

Scripture Reflection Matthew 5
4Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

Lord Jesus those who mourn are always left with questions...why? The loss is so real and the reasons seem so few and lacking of any real meaning. There is a promise to those who mourn--comfort for their loss.

For those who are willing to listen...for those who are willing to be met in their need. There is comfort.

The reasons are not always known, if fact are most of the time beyond our reach and our understanding, but not the comfort. The answers to all of our questions are not answered only the necessary ones...the ones we need to take the next step on our journey of faith.

Lord Jesus comfort those who mourn today.
