Loss is something that we deal with so much as humans, weather it be money, or property, or even family and friends our hearts can be constantly discouraged by loss. Look at the life of Job, he lost cattle, his estate, and even his children and even he was weighed down by the burden. But we must always remember who is there to take that burden away, Jesus. In our upcoming movie Escape, C. Thomas Howell (The Amazing Spiderman) is seen struggling with the loss of his new born daughter. But rather than turning to God and offering his grief he buries it away and movies to an island in Southeastern Asian in an attempted to out run his sorrow.
How often do we try to burry our emotions in other things like our work or hobbies? We think that if we hide it deep enough it can’t hurt us but in fact it festers and causes more pain. But if we offer our pain to the Lord He promises that He is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
