Griefshare : God, What is going on? It’s a fair question. Does God really understand what you are going through after your loss? In the Bible, you’ll find assurance that God does understand and wants to help you:
He is described as “the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.” 2 Corinthians 1:3
He knows what is happening to you: “But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand.” Psalm 10:14a
God wants you to talk about your hurts, to “pour out your heart to him.” Psalm 62:8 NLT
Do you see? He hears your cries for help and He invites you to come to Him for comfort. You are invited to come and seek His comfort. GriefShare is starting here on Tuesday, February 21 at 6:30 pm.
