I am truly blessed...

"In God's economy even those who mourn are blessed. The Greek word translated "blessed" in Matthew 5:4 beautifully expresses the essence of the blessed life. 'Biblically, one is pronounced blessed when God is present and involved in his life. The hand of God is at work directing all his affairs for a divine purpose, and thus, in a sense, such person has lived coram Deo, before the face of God.' Sometimes the circumstances of our suffering may not change, but the circumstances of our hearts are changed in the midst of them through a keen sense of God's presence and a lively perception of His activity."
