“Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.” (Luke 6: 21)
Be ready for your blessings. Don’t for a moment think that despair, disappointment, need, or grief is your cross to bear. We are given a promise. You shall be blessed and, in fact, already are.
Your Father-Mother loves you perfectly and completely—always has and always will. Even in your doubt and in your sadness, divine Love is actively with you. And God’s tenderness goes beyond simply meeting the need, as Jesus’s words here remind us. We receive even more than we might now expect.
The hungering thought not only gets fed, it gets filled. That dear one who seems in need of spiritual sustenance and necessary substance in life, will receive enough to feel full and satisfied, enough, perhaps, even to give to others. Likewise, the one who weeps, who mourns a loss literally or grieves over human experiences and self-doubt, will do more than simply smile again or have a moderate peace. That very one will laugh!
The belief overcome through God’s love gives us a truly rich reward. Know this and allow that blessing to come in—to spread out Soul’s full feast before you and to cause you to naturally and freely and fully and gratefully and heartily rejoice!
