DAILY DEVOTIONS: Sep 11
‘The Other Side’
Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh.
- Luke 6:21
This date represents a day of great pain and loss for our country. It also represents a day of great resilience, faith and courage.
Every challenge, every grief, every heartache brings a deep hunger and a well of tears. The emptiness inside us reminds us that our ultimate hunger, and our ultimate source of nourishment, is God alone.
If you are in a time of struggle or pain, know that this is not random; it isn’t heartless or without purpose. No matter what it is, no matter how big the chasm of your broken heart, God is with you. He has a plan for you. He will redeem and repurpose every bit of your ache for something greater than you could ever imagine. If that seems unfathomable or impossible right now, all the better. Because when you get to the other side of this, you will be amazed at what he was doing for you behind the scenes.
Watch, wait and wonder.
- Kristin Armstrong
