As tragedy happens, it’s normal to feel like life comes to a complete standstill while you zero in on the issue at hand. It could be anything in each of our lives that strikes at us unaware.
It’s not something to push aside feeling like you need to be strong. It’s ok that life comes to a complete halt at these times. I’ve experienced this myself and took it to God about how to handle the crisis. There were tragedies where I took days and could not get out of my pajamas! It’s ok… being still before God and staying in His presence is needed.
You just can’t see it yet and even though it’s hard for us to imagine that the future could be any different from what you’re experiencing in the moment, God knows it can and will. Healing and restoration are happening my friends.
It never ceases to amaze me how God shows up every time. God shows up because I look for Him to do so. You won’t always feel this way, or maybe you don’t call on Him immediately when tragedy happens, we are all different.  But there will be an end to the issues, God’s promises are true. Don’t try to get around the suffering, let God get His arms around you! Take the moments with God when they come. If you walk step by step with Him through it all, your pain will actually subside. Reach up and grasp the hand of your heavenly Father.
Your Father wants to comfort you and shoulder your grief. Even if your well of tears does not seem to run dry, God’s presence with you will allow you to walk through the river of grief to the other side. God will provide enough light for your next step. Trust Him. I’m living proof that where He is no matter when it is, I am comforted. Knowing God’s presence is with me, IAM COMFORTED!
“God’s tracks, take us to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss; that’s where He restores and revives my life.
(Psalm 23: 2-3 TPT)
I pray this helps you or a loved one today. Psalm 23:2-3!!!!
