Many widows never get over the loss of their husbands. Sometimes even the healthiest woman can’t seem to shake the grief and pain of loss. These ideas for coping with grief that never never ends are inspired by a She Blossoms reader.
prayers to God
Are you searching for God’s will for your life? You want to follow Jesus but you’re worried you’ll miss the mark. You’re starting to overthink every decision, step, future plan…and you feel paralyzed by indecision and anxiety.
“How can I pray without ceasing, like Paul says?” asked a She Blossoms reader on 5 Ways to Talk to God When You Can’t Pray. “I’m a single mom and I have to go to work, walk the dog, feed my kids and do the housework. How is it possible to keep praying constantly when you have real responsibilities?”
Maybe somebody said, “It’s not you, it’s me” while breaking up with you or ending a friendship. Maybe you yourself have even said it! “I’m sorry, but our relationship isn’t working out. You didn’t do anything wrong. It’s not you, it’s me.”
Figuring out God’s call on your life can be confusing as a corn maze — especially when we don’t have all the rules and instructions set before us. Not like back in the day, in the Old Testament times. I bet Moses and the Israelites never asked, “what does God want from me today?”
Having a more meaningful relationship with God won’t guarantee good times, health or wealth. Just the opposite, in fact! The closer you are to Jesus, the deeper your compassion, love and sensitivity to others’ pain and suffering in the world.
