~ The Lord causes a lot of suffering, but he also has pity because of his great love. The Lord doesn't enjoy sending grief or pain. Lamentations 3:32-33 We're still alive. We shouldn't complain when we are being punished for our sins. Instead, we should think about the way we are living, and turn back to the Lord. Lamentations 3:39-40 ~ God who brings comfort, help me in my affliction, make me aware of your goodness and love, so that I can turn from the wrong paths, and know your comfort once again. Amen.
