Who’s to say when the season ends?
Who’s to say when the crying stops?
Who’s to say when it’s time to move on?
You may give a “buck up” message to help someone “get past” their crud.
But, unless you’ve walked their path (and no one has the exact same path),
You have no idea the length of time it will take for them to be able to “move on”.
And, believe it or not, some people are created to grieve.
You might not like that, but it’s biblical.
Some people are given hurt after hurt after hurt to be an example of the reality of a sinful world.
You can’t know who that person is…and it’s way too easy to say, “Get over it!”
God determines the seasons of our lives.
WE are to be compassionate in whatever season we find others…
Mourn with those who mourn.
Rejoice with those who rejoice.
YOU are not God.
I am not God.
He determines the times and the seasons…
…the epochs of our lives.
Love covers a multitude of sins…even self-pity…
Be gentle, compassionate, forgiving…let the fruit of kindness be ever on your lips.
