Good Grief: Seeking Comfort When You Feel Sad

We all experience disappointments and losses but how do we react? We may deny our sadness, get busy, or judge ourselves, but that diminishes our joy and our capacity to offer compassion to others. Asking for emotional comfort is different than complaining or wallowing in self-pity — it’s the path of regaining energy for life and ministry.

Perfect Love Removes Fear

When the Lord in his Word says, “Fear not” he’s not judging us for having worries or fears! He’s actually inviting us to feel, talk, and pray. He’s opening his arms to us in love. We share a meditation on Luke 12:32 to experience the love of Christ and the Father.

The Loneliness of Leadership

Most Christian leaders say they don’t have a close friend. There’s a certain aloneness and feeling of being unappreciated that goes with being a pastor, pastors’ spouse, counselor, boss, or parent. You carry others’ burdens but who carries yours? Bill and Kristi feel the struggle — do you? Join our conversation to discover with us that the risen Christ meets us in lonely places and he enables us to love one another (Luke 5:16; John 15:12).
