I just lost my dad two weeks ago to a sudden, totally unexpected massive heart attack. He was only 67 years old and the”healthy” one in the family. Total shock and unbelief! Needless to say, it was a hard Christmas (and birthday!). However, the Lord certainly sustained me and our family, and I can truly say that I have no hope but Him.
I read this post a few days ago and was comforted and encouraged, so I thought I would share it here.
For those who have suffered real loss and have been grieving this Christmas, it is a good time to keep Christian grief in perspective. We have a Savior who is a Man of sorrows and acquainted grief. He knows like no one else. He calls us to cast our cares on Him. So I pray for all of you in this season of sorrow, that you will find hope and consolation, good comfort and true Christian joy in the midst of hard times.
