Working in Pastoral Care and as an Elder, and even just because of friendships, I am always searching for words of comfort and hope to relay to people who suffer some of life’s toughest tragedies, especially the loss of loved ones.
Yesterday I happened upon three bits of advice from three different sources, all from unknown writers. I’m sharing them here:
Although we grieve and hurt in a tragic situation, it still is not about us…it is about God.
Everything that happens in life is ultimately between God and the person involved in the happening.
Don’t let tragedy steal your trust in God.
I’m always thankful when timely tidbits come my way to share with those who may be in need of what I think of as God’s advice.
