Healing grief by turning to God

Christianity promises lasting comfort, not endless sorrow.

After my husband's death, I was thrust into a mental wilderness, and great fear engulfed me. Grief made me miss my husband so much that I was actually envious when I saw other couples holding hands! Yet in my loneliness I longed to draw closer to God. I realized that I couldn't wait for time to heal my sorrow, because time possesses no intrinsic healing balm. Therefore I sought to follow the signposts of comfort by turning to God through prayer.

Like a roof over our heads when it's raining, prayer provides a shelter from the hard blows that daily life can deal. No matter how sorrow and sadness may come to us, we can find comfort. Prayer is a sure lifeboat, which brings us safely to the point of Christian healing.
