A Time to Weep.

In chapter three of Ecclesiastes, the writer penned these words;  "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the sun...a time to weep...and a time to mourn..."

This is a season to weep. It is a time to mourn with the family of fallen Deputy, Kurt Wyman. Kurt leaves behind his wife, Lauren, an 18-month old son, and a daughter who was born just one day after her daddy died. It is a time to weep, a time to mourn. When words fail, and tears flow, pray for the family. Jesus is the only one that can give them the kind of comfort needed for such a time as this. The God we serve is the Father of compassion, and the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3). Weep, mourn, pray.

  1. Jesus not only comforts us in our sorrow, He also gives hope. Consider these verses from 1 Thessalonians 4:
    Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.
