For God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah. Then the people will settle there and possess it; the children of his servants will inherit it, and those who love His Name will dwell there. PSALM 69:35-36

Though we are to follow Jesus' example and mourn as He did over sin and death, we are not to mourn as those who are despairing and hopeless. For through Jesus' death and resurrection, we have boundless hope - hope that is not some mystical feeling, but hope that is more like a promise or commitment. We can trust that those who died in Christ will rise again. And since only God knows the heart, we can hope that those who did not die in Christ will have turned to God in the last possible moment. All of life and death is in God's hands.

The psalmists teach us how to mourn as well. Though they express their deepest, rawest emotions to God without restraint, in the end of each psalm, they reassert what they know about God. "He is worthy to be praised". "He will do what He has promised". "This life is not all that there is". And so we are to grieve, but with a long-distance view of what is to come. When that seems too hard, just like the psalmists, we can ask God to help us. He will be faithful to your cry.

INSIGHT: LET US NOT MOURN WITHOUT PRAISE, AND WHEN IT SEEMS LIKE WE CAN'T, LET US ASK GOD FOR HELP TO BELIEVE THAT WHAT HE HAS COMMANDED IS POSSIBLE.

Dear Father God, We know from 2 Peter 3:9, The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. Thank you for your patience with us...please give anyone reading this an open heart to come to Your Son, Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins...help us that already know Jesus as Savior to abide and persevere in Him. It's in Jesus' Name I pray, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
