When His Heart Breaks

Luke 7:11-15 The Message (MSG)

11-15 Not long after that, Jesus went to the village Nain. His disciples were with him, along with quite a large crowd. As they approached the village gate, they met a funeral procession—a woman’s only son was being carried out for burial. And the mother was a widow. When Jesus saw her, his heart broke. He said to her, “Don’t cry.” Then he went over and touched the coffin. The pallbearers stopped. He said, “Young man, I tell you: Get up.” The dead son sat up and began talking. Jesus presented him to his mother.

A widow's tears and her story of the Savior's comfort were the inspiration for the images chosen for Crowder's "Steeple Outro" song just uploaded to Youtube.    Our Savior does seem to have a way of meeting us where we are and bringing comfort to our souls; and he does so in a way that is tailored for a dear one's needs.  We are loved and I am thankful.
