Healing for Hearts in Pain

The New Year has begun and all the platitudes and ideas have been spoken, resolutions have been encouraged. Ahead stretches almost a whole year~and  that is all we are assured~time will move on.

Death has suddenly and unexpectedly stolen two friends already this year. Husbands, fathers, and friends are now gone. It leaves one breathless in shock. They were here, now there is just a place where a piece of life has been torn out. For some this year will be one of loneliness without the loved one. Pain from that gaping hole inside is still throbbing. Tears flow as the heart longs for just one more day with them. To those left behind, it is seen as an unending year to just get through.

In this new year no one knows the path they will find in the hidden mysteries of the future. But we can be assured of one thing: We serve a God Who loves us and cares for us. “Then why did my loved one die?” is the cry I hear. “Why this pain of loss if God truly loves me?”  

These sorrow filled questions ring in many hearts. The only answer is that we serve a God Who knows all things. He does nothing to harm us. He did not kill the loved one. He did not “take” them; He is the Creator not the destroyer. The enemy is the master of death. God is the Master of life. We know God will bring those who accepted His Son’s gift of salvation into heaven, and there they will live in happiness. 

“But what of me? I have to go on without them? I miss them!” God does care and He will bring comfort to all who seek Him. He opens His arms wide to hold us and hug us when we need it. We are called to trust in Him to walk with us through these days of sorrow. God can and will support us. The chapter on ‘God’s Faithfulness’ in the book Cast Up A Highway says this: 

If you are going through a crisis like a death of a loved one, it can be so painful, it is hard to focus on God and His love. But remember, He is the only One Who has the balm to ease the pain of loss; He’s the only One Who can fill that empty hole in the heart left by the loss of the other. Strive to focus on God and His Word, and allow Him to do His healing work in you. Your tears and cries of pain and loss go straight to His heart. He hears you and will bring His touch of healing to you. Go to Him as a little child; sit on His lap, and feel His loving arms around you. Let Him hold you as you weep on His shoulder, and let Him heal you.
