There comes a time when our Souls are "overwhelmed" with sorrow. A "Special Sorrow" that "grinds us to powder" where there is nothing we can do that make us "feel" better. It's beyond mere "regret", beyond Pain, Tears, Fears and Feelings. If we ever experience being "nailed to the Cross", THIS IS IT! A time when our Soul is disgraced and we "feel" we have forfeited GOD'S "SPECIAL FAVOR". A time when we start to view the "evilness of sin" as GOD sees it. It is no longer the pain of disgrace or shame for the World. It is the "true mourning" for our actions against our HOLY AND LOVING GOD. The exact nature of this "sorrow" is our longing to return to GOD and this can only be done through "REPENTANCE". It is a time where we seek GOD'S Mercy and that is all that matters. It is GODLY SORROW and no longer WORLDLY SORROW. "For GODLY grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret..." (2 Corinthians 7:10). And Psalm 2:4, "against THEE, THEE only have I sinned..." A time when we seek GOD with GODLY SORROW, BEYOND PAIN, TEARS, FEARS AND FEELINGS. AMEN!
