When You Are in Sorrow

 • Golda Dilema • Psalm 34:18, Psalm 73:26, 2 Corinthians 1:3–4, Psalm 71:20–21

 

I was young when my grandmother passed away. I loved her, and she loved and cherished me. We had good times together. I valued being with her. She accepted me for who I really was. She cared for me. She was the best grandmother to me.

 

When she passed, I was in deep sorrow. I was not prepared for her to go. She became ill, but I never thought it could lead to death. When she was gone, I became like a flower that had lost its fragrance. I missed her very much. Joy had turned to sadness, and I grieved for many days.

 

When someone you love passes away, remember that God did not want to take your joy away. God created everything good, but sin and brokenness came into the world when the first humans chose their will over God’s. While it can be easy to blame God or be bitter toward Him when a loved one dies, know that God grieves with us, and He is going to bring about an end to death. Jesus defeated sin and death when He died on the cross and rose again, and He will return one day to raise us from the dead and crush death underneath His feet forever.

 

When you are in sorrow, remember that Jesus promises new life. If we’ve put our trust in Jesus, nothing can separate us from God, the owner of our souls who loves us deeply (Romans 8:38-39). God’s Spirit holds us, even in death.

 

When you are sorrowful, you can cherish the memories and moments you and your loved one had together, and you can thank God for how He has blessed you with the life of this person. When you are sorrowful, come to God, and He will comfort you. • Golda Dilema

 

• How might it be comforting to know that Jesus is with you as you grieve?

 

• What are some ways you can bring comfort to those who are grieving? (Romans 12:15)

 

• Death is a terrible thing, but it is not the end. All of Jesus’s followers will be with Him in the happiest, loveliest, and most peaceful place for eternity. He will wipe our tears, and there will be no more suffering (Revelation 21:1-7). How might this truth give you hope?

 

Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once more. Psalm 71:20-21 (NIV)

Enjoy a Full Life Today

 • Emily Rondello • John 3:16, John 10:1–18, John 17:3

I remember when I got sheepskin winter boots in middle school. That might not seem significant, but they weren’t just any winter boots. Everyone at school seemed to have them. When you got them, it was like you joined a club. My mom knew how badly I wanted a pair of these boots, and she found a less expensive, off-brand version for me. I couldn’t wait to wear them. Once I had those boots, it felt like my life could begin again.

How often do we want something so badly that we believe our lives are on hold until we have it? When we are so focused on wishing we had something we don’t have, we can easily miss what’s right in front of us. This causes us to miss opportunities to enjoy what we do have.

I wish I had known back then that my life wasn’t on hold without those boots. And my life wasn’t made complete when I got them either. I would have been fine even if I never got a pair. God wants us to enjoy a full life today, no matter where we’re at—it’s His gift! In John 10:10, Jesus says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” Notice what Jesus doesn’t say. He doesn’t say, “They may have life, and have it to the full...when they ace their social studies test,” or “...once the person they’ve been crushing on finally notices them” or “...when they score the most goals on the soccer team.” Instead, Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” PERIOD. There is no disclaimer. I believe one of the chief ways the enemy tries to steal, kill, and destroy is through making us believe God is holding out on us, but it’s not true!

God loved us so much that He gave His Son, Jesus, so that we could have life (John 3:16; 17:3). Only He can fill our deepest needs and desires. But, because our world has been broken by sin, we look to so many other things to fill us. In John 10, Jesus says that He gives fullness of life to His followers in an unexpected way: by laying down His own life for theirs. Jesus died on the cross for our sins, and He rose again so that we could enjoy life-giving relationship with God. To everyone who puts their trust in Jesus, God gives a full life today. • Emily Rondello

• Have you ever felt like your life wouldn’t be complete until something changed or you got something you wanted?

• What is one good gift God has given you? Consider taking a moment to thank Him for this!

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I [Jesus] have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10 (NIV)
