Daily Hope for Hurting Hearts

November 2nd, 2010 Posted in sermons

The storms of life can happen unexpectedly.

Your day is sunny, the birds are singing . . . then out of nowhere, a drop of rain falls.

Ominous clouds build and soon it’s raining. And usually, when it rains it pours. At some time in our lives, we all face these storms of life: relationship problems, job loss, health issues, conflict at work, financial crisis, the death of a loved one. The list goes on.

Two kinds of people.

It really comes down to this—there are only two kinds of people in the world: those who are going through a crisis and those who are going to go through a crisis. I hate to be the one to break this to you, but if you are not in a storm of some kind now, you are headed for one. But here’s the good news: you are not alone in your storm. Jesus Christ is there with you!

I have a new book out.

I have just completed a new book with the title Daily Hope for Hurting Hearts. This book picks up where my book, Hope for Hurting Hearts, leaves off.

As you know, that book was written in the immediate aftermath of my son’s unexpected departure to heaven.

This new book, Daily Hope for Hurting Hearts, offers you a devotional thought for each day. It will be especially helpful to anyone who has recently suffered some kind of loss or is going through a trial in their life.

    I’ve never commented on a blog, not even sure I know what a blog really is.. I’ve never actually went further then to just look up information online at your website in times past. I love the Lord with all that is in me and know He is faithful in all He does and all He allows. I’m grieving and in a way that feels as though I will not make it through. Each day that dawns I’m beseeching Christ to help me, help me please, to care for my children, goto work, come home, clean, cook, just live.. basically – O’ God let me function I can’t even get out of bed without you to help me. I was married on Oct. 3, 2009 a testimony of His amazing love, grace & deliverance for me and my husband. It was love, agape love and a love for our Savior that we shared so intimately, that permeated into the world around us. On Friday, October 1, 2010 as we planned for our 1 year anniversary weekend together, the Lord planned to take my husband home. He had a bad accident at work – that took his life. It has been 35 of the longest days in my life and they seem to be going on and on and on. I have that blessed hope knowing I will again see him, but I have that human flesh that weakens even to my inner soul that grief that seems to paralyze me beyond my control. I was given your book “Daily Hope for Hurting Hearts”, by a dear brother of ours. I only simply read the first few pages, and lamenting and weeping again I put it down. Then came to look online at your website. Why am I commenting on this I do not know maybe to release my ache inside and share that I may have more of my church family praying to our mighty God on my behalf and my childrens behalf. Reaching out to touch someone who can understand a little of the pain that is so overwhleming my life right now. I don’t know really. All that I know is I’m weak and hurting, praying the Lord to see me through, not knowing how He will, but knowing He has to as I can’t.
