Embracing God’s love in the midst of loss
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit" - Psalm 34:18
The pain of loss can be a difficult and heartbreaking experience. Whether it's the loss of a loved one, a job, a relationship, or anything else, it can leave us feeling lost, alone, and overwhelmed with grief. In these moments, it can be hard to see anything positive or hopeful, but the truth is that God is with us even in our darkest moments.
Psalm 34:18 tells us: "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." The Bible verse reminds us that God is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Even when we feel like we can't go on, God is there to comfort us and lift us up. He understands our pain and is there to walk with us through the difficult journey of grief.
As a family, we can lean on each other for support and comfort during times of loss. We can also lean on our faith in God and trust in His promises. We can pray together, read His Word together, and hold on to the hope that He will see us through this difficult time.
Through our pain, God can teach us about His love and grace. He can help us to grow in compassion and empathy for others who are going through similar struggles. And He can use our experiences to encourage and comfort others who are hurting.
So if you are going through a time of loss, know that God is with you. He sees your pain and hears your cries. Lean on Him and trust in His love, and know that He will carry you through.
Pray with us
Dear God, we come to You today with heavy hearts, feeling lost and overwhelmed with grief. We pray that You would draw close to us and comfort us in our pain. Help us to trust in Your promises and to lean on each other as a family. Teach us about Your love and grace, and use our experiences to help others who are hurting. We thank You for Your unfailing love and for carrying us through this difficult time. Amen.
