Psalm 5:2

2Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.

When someone comes to you and shares his heartache of unexpected tragedy, what will you say?

We don’t need to force ourselves just to say something. To hear them cry is sufficient. They waited several years; graduation from chosen degree certified an accomplishment in the educational institution. In just few months of job search, professional career has started. A simple gathering at a tourist destination was a very blissful celebration for the career advancement of their beloved child. The time has come for the professional to be independent. Going back to work and prepare for brighter future after few days of celebration, such is an ideal optimism of most parents for their children. Then a tragic accident ended all expectations.

There are individuals who are blessed to have prolonged careers; others may experience success of life on earth for not very long time. It’s shocking when we hear and read from the news about celebrities who left this world at very young age. Ordinary citizens may live long years normally. Everyone has unique story of life to tell the next generation; and with certainty, when it’s time for us to leave this world eventually, we won’t take to the grave anything we’ve accumulated in this world. Such is a reality of life on earth; we do not have control of our life. But still, it’s not easily accepted.

Of course, we rejoice when love ones succeed, and we become emotional when they leave this earth ahead of us. What can we do? We pray for their success to prolong, and we pray that God grant anyone who needs peace and comfort. It challenges us in Romans 12:15, 15Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. It is obedience to the Lord’s command to rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn.

May God abundantly bless us practically when we obey him so that we may praise and thank him all the days of we spend our life on earth!

Lord Jesus, hear our cry for help!
