Night Time. Dark Time.

Middle of the night.
Night time.
Dark time.
Hardest of hard times in grief.

So many dark thoughts.
So many memories.
So many unfulfilled dreams.
So much pain.
So much loneliness.

Nighy time.
Dark time.

No one there to listen to my cries.
No one there to sooth my hurts.
No one there to hold me as tears silently run down my cheeks.
No one there to share the pain of my empty arms.

No one there.

Except the One who is always there.

There is One who is always there.
There really is!

He is always.
Always near.
Always here.
Always available.
Always caring.

He does not sleep nor does He slumber.
He is not far away that I must search for Him.
He is not in the depths that I must dive for Him.
He is not so high that I cannot reach Him.

He hears the cry of my hurting heart.
He hears the deep groanings of my soul.
He hears me as I silently call out to Him in my pain and sorrow.

He knows my pain.
He knows this pain of loss.
He knows this pain of grief.

He, too, saw His Son in a grave.

He always cares.
He always knows.
He always loves.

He loved the world so much that even in our debauchery and rebellion He made a way for us to come to Him.

He loved us so much that He made a way for me to have eternal life.

He loved us so much that by giving up His Child He made a way for my child to have eternal life.

By raising His Son from the dead, He made a way for my son to be raised from the dead to live eternally with Him.

And because the One who is always near to the broken-hearted made the way, I can know that I will see my child again.

Middle of the night.
Night time.
Dark time.
Hardest of hard times in grief.

Yet there is One who is there.

He is there to listen to my cries.
He is there to sooth my hurts.
He is there to hold me as tears silently run down my cheeks.
He is there to share the pain of my empty arms.

And He says, “Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”
