Led to Lament // Body and Blood // Jeremiah 31:31-34 // May 31 2015

I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.
— Vincent Van Gogh

God leads his people to lament. And he has plans for when they arrive in that place, plans to meet them there and make them new and share his very life. The arrival in the place of lament in a blessed thing for the people of God. It is the end of all false hope, and therefore the end of all false life. It is the place of true hope, the place of green pastures, the place where life overflows into eternity.
