Lamentations - 1

unstoppable grief

Lamentations 3:48-51 (JDV)

Lamentations 3:48 My eyes flow with streams of tears because of the destruction of my dear people.
Lamentations 3:49 My eyes overflow unceasingly, without stopping,
Lamentations 3:50 until Yahveh looks down from the sky and sees.
Lamentations 3:51 My eyes bring me grief because of the fate of all the daughters in my city.

unstoppable grief

Even those of us who seldom get “emotional” feel the emotions. The closer we look at our life choices, and the lives we are left with as a result of them, the more we cry out to God.

The Lamenter did not have to look deep to find destruction, despair and a sense of hopelessness. His people and his city had reaped the consequences of their own failures, and their lives were a mess. Sadness overtook them.

Our God is there for times like that, and times like this. If you are crying out to God, you are in the right place, and doing the right thing.

Lord, only you can handle our times of unstoppable grief.
