Thinking about all of the possibilities of disheartening things that other people have gone through, I have been so blessed to not have to deal with a lot of grief in my life thus far. I don't think my heart is strong enough to handle some things that other people handle so well. Although this verse isn't very fitting for my life right now, it is very fitting for the lives of people around me and for the people of Japan & other countries torn apart by things they cannot control. I will rejoice in the compassion He has shown me.
"Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love."
Confession: I did not memorize last week's verse. I will memorize it though--I promise!
