Led to Lament // Languish No More // Jeremiah 31:10-14 // May 17 2015

Life in man is the glory of God; the life of man is the vision of God.
— St. Irenaeus of Lyons

God does not give up on his people. The one who scatters also gathers back to himself. He turns mourning to joy as sorrow in human folly gives way to radiance in divine goodness. He turns the eyes of the people off themselves and onto himself. Behold him, all you who faint. See him, you weary and week. He has come to lift your head. And he does not fail.
