Description


You've lost someone you love deeply. It may have been years ago and it may have just recently happened. There is a deep sense of hopelessness you may be experiencing. You might be lacking peace and wondering how things could ever be right in your world again. Your emotions have taken over, and, although you know God is good, that's a hard truth to grab hold of in this moment.

In Lamentations 3:19-24, Jeremiah says:

"Peace has been stripped away....Everything I had hoped for from the Lord is lost The thought of my suffering...is bitter beyond words. I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss. Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. I say to myself, 'The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him '"

The grief in Jeremiah's heart doesn't go away, but the focus of his heart changes. He acknowledges his pain and hopelessness, and then there's the "yet". It's saying, "my heart is broken, and yet, God is faithful". He doesn't stop grieving in order to trust God. Instead, he reminds himself of God and chooses to trust Him in the midst of his grief.

Yet is written for the Christian who is living in a season of grief and despair. For the broken heart that doesn't know how to move forward in life and in their faith. While still being allowed to grieve, what does it look like to turn to Jesus in the midst of it all and say, "I still trust you because you are faithful "? The Christian life is one of hope, joy, and peace. These things are not often synonymous with grief, but because of God's faithfulness, we can find hope, joy and peace in the Lord as we grieve the loss of those we love so dearly.

As you navigate the pages of Yet, you'll be given opportunities to pour out your own heart, respond to truths from God's word, and put your own grief into words. You'll find amazing truths of who God is, His faithfulness to you, and His presence with you as you grieve. You'll take steps toward moving forward in your life and in your faith journey. While the grief journey is the hardest thing you will endure in this life, God is faithful and will give you all that you need as you cling to Him throughout.
