inseparable.

I am amazed when my heart is heavy with sorrow, I find myself smiling at something.

Have you thought why this is?

Sorrow and joy are inseparable. We may think we are feeling one or the other but they operate together.

While walking down the street one day during the deepest sorrow of my life, the autumn wind caught some fallen leaves and they swirled around me, starting at my feet and up over my head. It tickled and I laughed. I knew it was God focusing his attention on me and telling me all was well. Not that it would be well. But it was well right then and there.

Psalm 13 reveals the psalmist’s sorrow and joy dwelling together.

Perhaps you can think of moments when you felt a smile – even when you were hurting very badly. This reveals God’s care or else we would be completely destroyed by sorrow.
