Run To God

We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival.” -Winston Churchill

Often when people go through tragedy they want to run away from God when what they need to be doing is running to God.  Instead of pretending we’re strong enough to get over tragedy by ourselves, let’s allow God to help us get through tragedy.  It’s healthy to grieve when that’s truly how you feel.  Know that ultimately God will use today’s tragedy as tomorrow’s testimony.  Your testimony hence becomes a tool to teach others how to also overcome tragedy.  Through suffering you become stronger and others will to. 

And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you (1 Peter 5:10, ESV).
