When our world is shattered, how do we pick up the pieces and get back to normal? When we’ve lost something and are grieving, our capacity for restoration depends on finding God’s mercies in the dark times. We have to face grief square in the face and invite God into that darkness if we are going to be able to find the dawn again.
In this sermon, our new Senior Pastor Philip Miller shows us three realities we need to run to if we are to successfully walk grief in the presence of God:
1) We need to acknowledge that life is full of grief, and so we need to learn to lament with God.
2) Our instincts are often dangerous, so we need to lean in closer to God.
3) Sometimes going backwards is the only way forward, so we need to let our pride die.
