Bible Marginalia-Joy to the Sorrowing

Bible Marginalia Series- #246

Jeremiah 31:23-25
"This is what the Lord of Heaven's Armies, 
the God of Israel, says:
When I bring them back from captivity, 
the people of Judah 
and its town will again say, 
'The Lord bless you, 
O righteous home, O holy mountain!'
 Townspeople and farmers and shepherd
 alike will live together in peace and happiness.
 For I have given rest
 to the weary and joy to the sorrowing."

Seems like we so often prepare for the future
 and live always getting ready for something.
As I read this section it is a reminder 
about giving thanks
 for where we have already been too.
Perhaps now it is really days coming
  back from a time away.
And as confusing as that might be
 to think about, there is certainly
 the twining thread of HOPE in all of it.
The Lord continues to give-
 rest to the weary 
and joy to the sorrowing.
