“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
There is so much on my heart lately I can’t even begin to name them all. These verses speak to me because of those in my heart. They are confused, torn, hurt, and unable to think clearly. I feel for them because I am right there too. I pray for guidance to help them and to let God guide my words when I speak/write. I pray He continues to work through me and that I can be a blessing to them in their time of need.
