On January 31, 2015, at Uniontown Bible Church in Union Bridge, MD, from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM, I’ll be sharing my seminar on God’s Healing for Life’s Losses.
Holidays… They’re “supposed” to make us think of words like thankful, merry, and happy. We’re “supposed” to associate holidays with a phrase like “Home for the Holidays!” But… what if a loved one is not coming home this holiday season? What if death, divorce, distance, or family discord causes us to associate the holidays with words and feelings like depression, anxiety, and stress?
For some, the thought of being in a festive mood for two months is just too much to bear when our heart is breaking. Jesus offers comfort and hope.
At times like these, there really are no words, but there is the Word. There is no manual, but there is Emmanuel. God is with us.
As a biblical counselor, people often ask me the important question, “Should I try to forget my past?”
“In suffering, God is not getting back at you; He is getting you back to Himself.”
