The Way Back From Loss - Finding Peace in the Storm

Recovering from loss is difficult, and each individual reacts differently, but The Way Back From Loss provides solace in knowing you are not alone.

Continued from page 1

Trust gets us moving again. Only God knows the twists and turns of our lives and when any of us will ultimately arrive on the other side. Deep and strong trust in Him is what keeps us going.

We need help and perspective. Recovery is not as easy as sending out a few resumes or receiving well-intentioned sympathy cards.
God says, “Hold on. I will show you the path. I will enlarge it and keep your feet from slipping. Just trust Me.”

The first thing we need to do is to take Him at His word. Grab His hand and do not let go. Completely trust the Creator of the Universe for every step, every direction, and every minute of each day.

INSIGHT: We are all on a journey, and there are times when we slip and when the way forward is unclear. Know that God’s hand is there, ready to lead you to the next stone.

PRAYER: Ask God for His peace. Tell Him your fears, hopes, and dreams, and seek His direction and guidance. Ask Him to help you trust and be open to His gentle leading.

• Study 2 Samuel 22:3, 31, Psalm 7:1, and Psalm 18:30. Commit to reading these scriptures every day to build your trust in Him.

 Understand that what you may be holding on to isn’t what is best for you. Ask yourself, “What do I need to let go of in my life so I can trust in God more?” Let God show you the areas that are blocking you from moving to that next stone.

• Discover the power of sharing your vision and dreams for the future with someone who can pray for and/or mentor you. Many times speaking our dreams and asking for help from others allows us to see the future more clearly.
