God Wants Our Sad

There is not one verse in the Bible that explicitly declares that God brings sorrow to us, but the Bible is so full of scripture of God bringing and restoring our joy. Jeremiah says, "Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry.
The story our culture tells us and even some misguided churches is that health, wealth, and prosperity can and should be ours. As Americans, we are often led to believe we are entitled to these things. We are led to believe life should be easy, and we should be happy. So, of course, when life crashes hard, we believe something must be wrong with us. I was always wanting more, wanting to do more, and wanting to make a bigger impact for the Kingdom. But suddenly I felt my efforts were as useless as banging my head against a brick wall.
