John 12:24 - I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.
One of the hardest things that we face, with our pain, is that parts of our life have died. We can’t take part in them anymore. And it’s hard to face when we feel like we’re letting others down. Reach out to Jesus. Even if parts of your life have died, he can plant new seeds into your life to grow and bring you hope. He will help you feel that there is a reason to go on.
What areas of your life have died and you’ve been able to see past the sorrow, or does it still cause deep pain? I’d love to hear from you.
