The Healing Of Sorrow

2 a good friend betrays

2 a good friend betrays confidence, someone we counted on does not come through, a doctor diagnoses a life threatening illness, etc. The litany of human sorrows can be very long. Yet, there are ways of responding to sorrow which lead to recovery and the enjoyment of life once again. Following are eight attitudes and strategies for the healing of sorrow and for finding comfort in spite of suffering. 1 Raise Your Spirits Through Inspirational Writings The Bible is filled with inspiration and wisdom. The words of Scripture are often powerful in soothing our fears, calming our minds, and easing our anxieties, because they remind us of God’s constant care and concern about us. Some exceptional passages from the Bible include: John 14:1, 27—“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.”… “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Isaiah 66:12-14—“For thus says the Lord: ‘Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream. Then you shall feed; on her sides shall you be carried, and be dandled on her knees. As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.’ When you see this, your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like grass; the hand of the Lord shall be known to His servants.” 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4—“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” 3 Another indispensable source of inspiration can be found in a church hymnal. Read or sing to yourself some of the profound words of hope and faith found in a beloved song. Consider
