The Healing Of Sorrow

6 sold off as a slave.

6 sold off as a slave. Through God’s providence, Joseph became the second most powerful leader in Egypt. Years later, when he was reunited with his family, he reassured his frightened brothers with these words: “You you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good” (Genesis 50:20). A contemporary example pointing to a higher purpose working in life can be seen through the life of American pioneer Daniel Boone. On one occasion he and his brother, Squire, were camped on a riverbank. They were trapped in a heavy rain and huddling together under a horse blanket. Squire was very upset and did not understand how Daniel was able to bear the discomfort without complaining. When the rain ended, they left and soon discovered nearby a camp recently abandoned by hostile Indians. Daniel tells Squire: “What fretted you so much was really the means of Providence for our salvation. But for the storm, we should have run into the very jaws of our enemies.” 4 Heal Yourself by Helping Others Carrie Lane Chapman Catt, who was president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association from 1915 until her death

in 1947, offered this prescription for curing sadness and sorrow: “Go to your room; put on your hat; go out and do something for someone. Repeat ten times.” Behind Catt’s prescription is the wisdom that giving is receiving. Or consider this comment by Dr. Albert Schweitzer: “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.” Helping others brings solace to our own spirits, because in reaching out to another we take the focus off our own pain and hurt. By helping someone in need our perspective is broadened. The heavy, oppressive feelings suffocating our spirits are lightened through the joy gained through helping a needy person. 5 Surround Yourself with Supportive People The Bible reminds us to let friends be our medicine—“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up” (Ecclesiastes 4:9, 10). Look 7
