Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. ~ Matthew 5:2 NIV, Holy Bible, eBook (p. 938). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.
Thus started one more journey to the asylum for Jim. Here was the threat of commitment, the loss of family and position, to say nothing of that intense mental and physical suffering which drinking always caused him. ~ A.A. World Services Inc. Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition . A.A. World Services, Inc.. Kindle Edition.
It’s more than possible
as we in Recovery know
to mourn for our own lives,
as do our loved ones know.
But we also know a life to be mourned
can be reclaimed by knowing
we cannot control our obsessions,
coming to believe God can,
and by giving up trying,
letting God do it, and learning it works!
Blessed are those who mourn
because, if allowed,
God will take control
and comfort and joy will reign!
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Are you willing to be comforted?
