Loss and Longing

Story of loss and longing.

Any loss in our lives has consequences. Is it the departure of a loved one, spouse, child, mother, father, husband, wife even pet. Whether it’s a defeat in life, like a business where you lose a business partner, or just lose a job, even during the relationship-building period where you meet and finally open up and you’re rejected. Any kind of defeat, the loss we face, is unpleasant and painful, it surrounds us so much that there seems to be no way out. But no matter what we do, thoughts and memories will be with us, only time will be the one who will heal. The time God has given to each of us in this world – if we live with such a consciousness every day – God knows everything about me and all my days are already recorded in the stars and every day and event has a special task in my life – or God’s plan for my life.

… let’s go further

God refreshes our body, soul and mind. Every time we go through difficulties, we are not alone, but God is with us because He is aware of where He is taking us. Going through a more difficult period, it seems that life has stopped and emotions are too strong over us and we get stuck in them.

“My soul longs for your salvation; I hope in your word.”

Psalm 119:81

In this article, I want to talk about giving up and longing for what was not a blessing in our lives, even though it seemed to be what we want, but in reality God has prepared something wonderful especially for each one.

God wants us to be free from any negative emotions over our lives. Therefore, when we accept Christ in our hearts, God begins to purify the minds, heal sore souls, and change the hearts of men, because (regardless of man’s age, occupation, etc.) He has a plan for each of us; a plan that can deliver future and prosperity. No man has yet been born on this earth to live only for himself, so in order for God to use Him for His purpose, He begins His work in the appointed person.

“And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.”

Zechariah 13:9

Wow, what a scripture. And because the goal is for you, the bigger the challenges may come. God will never allow His children to keep the old thinking of this life. If the main thinking through His Word, then our feelings and attitudes towards ourselves and others begin to change.

It is our responsibility to know God’s plan for our lives, to see it, to confirm it, and to pass trials through His Word. Because only it can give strength and make people smarter, stronger and better.

When a person accepts Christ in his heart, a lot changes. Of course, it is never seen or felt immediately in the morning after waking up, but over time (some earlier, others slower) important things change (internally). A person is freed from the feeling of loneliness and begins to see the meaning of life. The inner eyes of man are revealed to many things that were previously hidden. In God’s life, God acts very personally, so that all the trials that God imposes lead to success and freedom.

“For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver.”

Psalm 66:10

There is no good thing that God wants to keep from His children, but first we must pass / pass the probationary period (cleanse hearts and heal sore souls) in order to be ready to receive His blessings.

And when you are in such a difficult situation that the light is not visible, then know that God is by your side. In the book of Daniel you can see a good example – God was with the men and saved them from the fire. Likewise, during your probation, God is constantly with you, even if you do not feel it.

Always keep Christ before your eyes as you go through the probationary period, for He alone is able to help and give you strength. His Word is light in absolute darkness; His strength is the foundation of your weakness, and His wisdom brings peace to your ignorance and confusion. And when you pass this probationary period (whatever it is), you will go out of it like purified gold, and even the smell of smoke will not be on you. (Daniel 3:23-27)

As flowers we strive for light and water. It is God who cares for them, then even less so for us, His children.
