When Tragedy Strikes

A family member dies suddenly from an incurable disease. A storm demolishes your home, causing you to lose everything. Your business goes bankrupt, wiping out your life savings.

When tragedy strikes, how do you handle such loss? Where do you turn for guidance or comfort during moments of uncertainty?

I saw a web site once that offered to help people overcome what they had lost through an unforeseen experience. For a small fee, I could pay a “life coach” to accompany me as I transitioned through the various stages of grief. Of course, it was a humanistic approach to a spiritual need. The web site yelled: “Time heals everything.” I wanted to scream back: “Time heals nothing. Only Jesus heals.”

The impact of a tragedy is devastating, oftentimes a life-changer. Tragedies cause us to pause and appreciate what we had. We start to see things differently. Maybe we take steps toward finding peace although we may never understand the reason why the tragedy occurred. As believers, we must recognize that Jesus is the ultimate healer of our hurt. No psychological babble or quick-fix formulas will do what only Christ can do for us because His remedy is pure and everlasting.

While realizing the reality of a tragic event, embrace the Savior and allow His love to flood your soul. As you cling to His Word and place your faith in Him . . . He promises to make you whole.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I like this article! I love the part about the "psychological babble" which made me smile in the middle of a serious topic. Nicely done!
