136.0 The Pain Train! How to Read the Bible When You Have Just Lost a Loved One.



The pain of grief overshadows everything in the beginning of your journey.  It becomes the lens through which all things are filtered. 

So, it’s not surprising that you may have anger, confusion, a million questions or even doubt your faith. It can even cause you to doubt God’s existence.

So, reading the Bible in those first ‘moments’ (which could be weeks or months) becomes different and harder, for a lot of reasons.  The thing is, that building your relationship with God and allowing him to comfort you and heal your heart is the single best thing to do. And that is done through praying and reading the Bible.

Today, I’ll share how to read and pray while you could care less about doing anything and overwhelmed with pain.


WORD of the Week

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.  Philippians 4:6-7
