Pressing On

Today's reading: Genesis 35:16-29

The second half of Genesis 35 records several sorrowful and difficult times for Jacob. Rachel, whom Jacob loved with all his heart, dies giving birth to Benjamin, Reuben commits adultery with Bilhah, and lastly, Isaac passes away and Jacob and Esau attend to his burial. This passage served to remind me that pain, hurt, sorrow, death and grief are inescapable parts of life, but with God as our foundation, we can endure and continue onward.

When and how has God sustained you through a time of great pain, loss or grief? How can you use your experiences in these areas to come alongside and help another person or share the Gospel with someone who doesn't yet have a relationship with God? Tami

The greatest loss of my life was the death of my father. I really never thought I would get over it or move beyond it. The world was just a less safe place without him in it. I am certainly able to empathize with and help someone else who is suffering from the loss of someone he loves. I am not smug about any of it, God has humbled me through sorrow.
