And ye therefore now have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no one taketh away from you.
Por tanto, ahora vosotros tenéis también aflicción; pero yo os veré otra vez, y vuestro corazón se alegrará, y nadie os quitará vuestro gozo.
There is sorrow and grief in this world, but when we have Jesus as our Lord and Savior, these sorrows are just for a short time. We have Him to look toward and forward to. Joy is coming and soon!
1 «Al Músico principal: Salmo de David» ¿Hasta cuándo, Jehová? ¿Me olvidarás para siempre? ¿Hasta cuándo esconderás tu rostro de mí?
2 ¿Hasta cuándo pondré consejos en mi alma, con ansiedad en mi corazón cada día? ¿Hasta cuándo será enaltecido mi enemigo sobre mí? 3 Mira, óyeme, Jehová Dios mío; alumbra mis ojos, para que no duerma en muerte;
4 para que no diga mi enemigo: Lo he vencido: Mis enemigos se alegrarán, si yo resbalare; 5 mas yo en tu misericordia he confiado; se alegrará mi corazón en tu salvación. 6 Cantaré a Jehová, porque me ha hecho bien.
I must admit, I am feeling similar emotions as David was. I cry out to You Father God. We need Your miraculous power to shine forth upon us. Please guide us with Your strong hand and help us in these times.
For godly sorrow works repentance to salvation not to be regretted: but the sorrow of the world works death. For behold this same thing, that you sorrowed after a godly sort, what earnestness it worked in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what full punishment! In all things you have proved yourselves to be pure in this matter.
Porque la tristeza que es conforme a la voluntad de Dios produce un arrepentimiento que conduce a la salvación, sin dejar pesar; pero la tristeza del mundo produce muerte. Porque mirad, ¡qué solicitud ha producido en vosotros esto, esta tristeza piadosa, qué vindicación de vosotros mismos, qué indignación, qué temor, qué gran afecto, qué celo, qué castigo del mal! En todo habéis demostrado ser inocentes en el asunto.
There is a lot of sorrow. Some sorrow is of God and some is of the world. God does not want us to have sorrow, but He uses it for His good and for a tool to fulfill His Kingdom. The world’s sorrow is not for us who trust in Jesus. There is good and bad of all; look at the words listed in the last half of this scripture. there is good indignation; there is good revenge. If we allow the Holy Spirit to guide us, the good will overwhelm the world’s ways. We are overcomers in Christ Jesus, our Lord!

Sometimes we don’t understand sorrow, but there are two kinds; the world’s sorrow and God’s sorrow. The first leads to death and destruction and the second leads to everlasting life. When we are sorrowful, we should take a hard look as to why. Is it the world’s sorrow or are we being sorrowful because of something God put on our hearts? There is no sorrow in heaven and if we trust God, we will know that experience. It is coming soon!
I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked are before me. I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred. My heart was hot within me, while I was meditating the fire burned: then spoke I with my tongue
Yo dije: Guardaré mis caminos, para no pecar con mi lengua; guardaré mi boca como con mordaza, mientras el impío esté en mi presencia. Enmudecí y callé; guardé silencio aun acerca de lo bueno, y se agravó mi dolor. Ardía mi corazón dentro de mí; mientras meditaba, se encendió el fuego; entonces dije con mi lengua
Our tongue and our words can do a lot of damage. There is a time we just need to shut up. I have had to learn this in many ways. The key is: are we listening to the Holy Spirit or are we just listening to our own brains? Even worse, are we helping satan with our words? There is a time to speak, and there is a time to let things go and just keep it shut. What is that “still, small voice” saying to you. What is the Holy Spirit saying to me. Lord, help us guard our words and help us be wise in knowing when to speak and when not to. In Jesus’ name I pray.
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he has purchased with his own blood.
Tened cuidado de vosotros y de toda la grey, en medio de la cual el Espíritu Santo os ha hecho obispos para pastorear la iglesia de Dios, la cual El compró con su propia sangre.
It is our responsibility to follow the Holy Spirit’s direction and to feed the people in our midst. God has blessed us with the tools and the means; we must feed them. I speak not about physical food, but spiritual food. What God shows us in His Word, we are to pass on to the others. We are not to hold it to ourselves. Let’s go feed and enjoy God’s gifts to us!
