Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart,

“Sorrow prepares you for joy.
It violently sweeps everything out of your house,
so that new joy can find space to enter.
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart,
so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place…
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”

~ Rumi

  1. Oh Ms. Natalie , thanks for posting this encouragement…🙂 Sometimes it’s so difficult to wait through hard, sorrowfilled days as we pray and wonder why a certain outcome has happened and we push to know the answers and plan that our Mighty All KNOWING God has for us…and standing in the promise that something good will come because scripture tells us that all things work together for good for those who love the Lord…we must remember this ….Amen! Your post comes in a needed time 🙂🙂
