Revelation 21 promises us a time when there will be “no more death or mourning or crying or pain.” Yet, sometimes, the grief and tragedy of this world feel overwhelming in the moment. We cannot fast forward through the pain, so we must lean on the Lord to walk through these painful valleys. If you are going through one of these inevitable seasons of grief, I feel your pain. There is no way to avoid hardship in this life, but I encourage you to praise Him in the midst of it. He will never leave you to suffer the storms of life alone.
