To Be Expected (Jeremiah 8:18-9:1)Rene' Lawson, September 22, 2019
Part of the Sunday Sermons series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Grief is to be expected in life. There will be times when sadness and disappointment will overwhelm us. There will be times when we will question God’s presence. “Where is God?” Yet there is also
comfort in knowing that such a process is a normal reaction to any difficult time that involves loss. God expects us to cry and the question. It’s part of our design.

18When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me. 19Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities? 20The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved. 21For the hurt of the daughter of my people am I hurt; I am black; astonishment hath taken hold on me. 22Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered? 9:1 Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people! (KJV)
