When Your World Collapses (Devotional 10-25-17)

What is our first reaction to a sudden loss, or devastating news?  Shock, disbelief, or feeling totally overwhelmed?

We all face storms in our lives.

They can be financial, relational, health, or the death of one we love. When you find yourself in these circumstances, cry out to God and let others help you. 

Relationships are what we need to help us get through these times.

We cannot avoid what has happened. We must face it, but we don’t have to face it alone. Psalm 34:18 (NIV) teaches us, “The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”  Reading scripture and journaling down your response to God will help you through the storms of life.

In Psalm 143:6-8 (NLT) King David was distraught by his circumstances and he cried out to God saying, “I lift my hands to you in prayer. I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain. Come quickly, LORD, and answer me, for my depression deepens. Don’t turn away from me, or I will die. Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.”

God hears our hearts cry and knows the pain we suffer. With God’s help, we can eventually turn our sorrow into someone else’s hope.  

Following THE Leader with you,

Pastor Ed Turley
