“Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble by the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Life’s toughest blitzes don’t turn around quickly. The pain and grief is often intense. Even so, the reality is that God has suffered for us more than we will ever suffer. His character and purpose is to heal us so that we can help others heal. The sooner you see and join His bigger purpose, the sooner you’ll lessen the pain of your trials.
The over comers in life are not people without wounds and scars, but those who see their trials as bridges to other people’s lives. They aim to encourage and lift others, both during and after their blitzes.
“Take your bad, serve somebody else, and turn it to good.” – Leslie Mayne, mother of a deceased young soldier, founder of Permission To Start Dreaming foundation.
Consider the astounding way that Jesus reached out to comfort, forgive, and bless others while He was literally dying on a cross!
Make yourself see the long term and determine to comfort and encourage others in the very midst of the hard times of your own blitzes.
Begin to share your past blitzes as central to the stories you tell and comfort you give to people.
