This reblog teaches a great principle that could set some people free – some losses are for our benefit.
IT IS POSSIBLE to be sorrowful, yet always rejoicing. The Holy Spirit empowered Paul to find Joy in the midst of adversity, and He can do the same for you. You must be willing, though, to let go of anything, trusting that I will never let go of you.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
[DEUTERONOMY 31: 6]
In all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God . . . as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
[2 CORINTHIANS 6:4, 10 NKJV]
Grieve your losses, even as you learn to focus on the good things that remain.
