Have you experienced any sickness or grief this year?
Perhaps one led to the other.
Sickness and loss comes to all of us from different directions, but every situation has one thing in common.
Sickness and grief rob us of our peace.
When I experienced illness and loss in my 30s I became bitter, angry, and anxious.
Now I know to run to Jesus, so even if circumstances rob my peace, I can still lean on His peace.
Sometimes I look back in regret at all the wasted time and energy. All the strife I brought onto myself and my family. If only I’d handled things better…
And this is what I love about Sarah Howley’s post Peace Robbers: Sickness and Grief.
It’s Never Too Late…
We are woefully inadequate to address these issues on our own, but the strongest thing that God placed in my heart to say this month is that it is never too late to turn to Him, to walk closer to Him, to surrender at His feet. – Sarah HowleyIt is never too late to turn to Him, to walk closer to Him, to surrender at His feet. – Sarah Howley Click To Tweet
Sarah taught me that even when I was too mad to turn to Jesus, or too stubborn to surrender my strength for His, He was still there waiting with open arms. I was never alone.
What is robbing you of your peace today? Are you blaming your circumstances for your temper tantrum? Will you still be hiding in your pajamas under the blankets, clinging to your hanky and Hershey’s at noon?
No matter where today finds you, Sarah wants you to know that Jesus loves you and wants to hold you close. Just as soon as you’re ready.
