“Blessed are you when you mourn, for I will comfort you. I build up the brokenhearted. I provide comfort for those who grieve. I turn your sorrow into joy. I saturate you with gladness instead of mourning.
“I remove the spirit of despair and replace it with a spirit of praise. I am your LORD who comforts his own with compassion and heals the afflicted.
“My staff pulls you back into my arms. My rod protects you from the enemy who prowls about looking for someone to devour. I will not forget you. I will never leave you. I am your good shepherd. Come and rest in my arms beside still waters.” – Jesus
