I have courage and comfort because I AM Divine.
Jesus assures his followers in the Sermon on the Mount, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” My Divine Nature assures my comfort today and everyday.
Whatever I may mourn—people, habits, beliefs—I am comforted knowing that my sense of grief is simply a response to change, and change is an essential part of my spiritual journey. Moving through change can be challenging and even painful. Even so, comfort is always available if I stay centered in the awareness of my Divine Nature.
Jesus did not pity “those who mourn.” Rather, he declared that they are blessed. As I acknowledge and move through any sense of loss, I find courage and comfort for everyday living.
