At some time in your lifetime, you will need to start over. You may have a career change, a job loss, the loss of a spouse, a child or a parent. None of us are immune from the difficulties of life. For some of us, our losses, in fact, are compounded with loss upon loss.
- In those times of grief, we wonder if the pain will ever really go away or if our broken heart will ever heal.
In those times when you are faced with such deep loss and sorrow, it’s okay to fall at the Father’s feet and pour your heart out to Him. There is no person on this earth who can really feel what you feel. And there are few who will be there in the dark of night to hear your cries or see your tears.
It’s okay to pour out the grief, the anger, and the confusion and lay it all at His feet. He’s there to listen when you need a friend at 2 a.m. in the morning or at 3 p.m. in the afternoon. He’s always there and He doesn’t grow weary of your tears.
He will send the Holy Spirit as your comforter and your guide. Rest in Him and let the Holy Spirit show you places to turn to in the Word that will bring comfort, guidance, and peace.
Psalm 30:5 says, Weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning.
And God says in Jeremiah 29:11 … I know the plans that I have for you… thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Find the scriptures like the ones above that bring you peace; write them down. Read them to yourself over and over again. Stand on them even when it all seems dark.
The entrance of God’s Word brings light.
In the midst of some of the darkest times in your life, God will be there to bring you through the storm to the other side.
He is a faithful Father and He will bring you into a place of peace and joy.
Are you ready to trust in Him?
