I am in awe of people.
I watch as those around me deal with such adversity. They sometimes suffer in silence. Sometimes it’s a privilege to stand beside them and watch as they walk a road no one should have to walk.
Maybe it’s an illness.
Maybe they face a trial for a mistake they made.
Maybe they have lost a friend to cancer
Maybe the someone they thought they would be with forever, didn’t want to be with them
Maybe, just maybe no one knows what is going on in their life.
I listened to a podcast the other day and a sentence stuck with me.
“Do you wear your sorrow?”
What do you mean “do you wear your sorrow?”
Do you wear it like a scarf so everyone sees it?
Do you wrap your self up in your sorrow and hide from the world?
Wiki quote says:
Sorrow is a profound experience of unhappiness, woe, or sadness.
How do you deal with sorrow?
I’m a hide from the world kind of girl.
Sorrow will find me today. I will have to put on my big girl pants today and deal with it.
Will it consume me?
I’m not going to wear it like a giant wool sweater ( I might suffocate in our 100 degree weather)
I awoke early and have already headed straight to His word.
You are with me, and your shepherd’s rod makes me feel safe.
These promises provide comfort
If you don’t have sorrow today, it will come another day.
Will you wear your sorrow?
Or will you go to the altar?
Today has started way before the sun rises.
Coffee is a must and I’m going to go pick out something cute to wear. I’m not wearing my sorrow today.
Have a blessed day,
