Ever in your life lose a beloved pet? It’s excruciating.
For many people, it was our first experience with heartbreaking loss. Unfortunately, none of us would be destined to escape the pain of losing someone or something dear, but one way to make loss more bearable is to invite God into our misery. Which sounds great.
You may, however, like me, have questions about how you might do this. I have questions about everything, always, it seems.
But in his book, Walking with God, author John Eldredge talks about the time when their beloved golden retriever, Scout, passed on, and I was so encouraged by how he invited God into his hard story, I wanted to share it with you, and ask you:
What losses have you experienced? They can range from a beloved pet to a beloved person; they can be related to health or one of those days that divides your life into before and after. Or maybe the loss of a relationship, like a marriage or a friendship. They can be lost youth, lost opportunity…
Just know that there is comfort waiting for you along the way.
Listen in to find out how that can happen…
