Consolation for the Grieving

Posted on August 3rd, 2020

A brief teaching video about how God’s everlasting arms hold us securely through seasons of grief and loss, prepared by Sarah Colyn.

We pray that the Lord will anoint this video in a way that perfectly matches your need today.

Resources for the grieving:

Psalms of lament:  Many find Psalm 22, 55, 69, 77, and 88 a good starting place in voicing the lament of grief. At least a third of the Psalms express lamentation, so you will find voice for your grief throughout these songs of scripture.

GriefShare:  Find seminars and support groups through the GriefShare website.

Music:  The MPC Music playlist includes many consoling songs. What songs help you share your sorrow with the Lord while lifting your eyes to Him in worship?

The Consoling Beauty of Truth:  During seasons of loss, reading beautiful Christian writings brings deep comfort to the heart. What is a favorite book that you turn to for the comfort of gospel truth?

Books on Grief:  Wise authors help our grief make sense and shine a light on the radiant path through the valley of the shadow of death. Some Christian classics: A Grief Observed, Lewis; Lament for a Son, Wolterstorff; A Grace Disguised, Sittser; Streams in the Desert, Cowman.
