I heard story about a young boy of four or five. He was out playing in the front garden. His mother was keeping an eye on him from the kitchen window.
She looked out and he wasn't around. Frantically she rushed outside to look for him.
There he was in the next door neighbours garden sitting on the front door step with the old man who lived there. The old man was obviously sobbing very deeply.
'Come here' she shouted to the young boy. 'Come here right now.' Wondering what he had done to upset the old man.
The little boy obediently came home straight away.
'What on earth were you saying to that old man' she blurted out.
The lad said: 'His wife of 50 years had just died and he was very sad and I was comforting him.' A bit bemused, mother replied,
'Well what did you say to comfort him?'
The little son answered; ' Nothing I just helped him to cry.'
There is help, there is hope.
Many of us go through very sad and painful experiences in life.
We can loose a friend, a spouse, a brother or sister.
We can fall out with a friend or experience the break up of a marriage.
Maybe something really bad happens to us and we just cant come to terms with it.
Jesus heals the brokenhearted like no other can.
He reassures us 'The Lord is close the the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.' Psalm 34:18
