RENEWAL Devotional: Getting Through Hard Times During the Holidays
Written by Lydia D’Ross, Ordained Minister and Outreach Chaplain for Renewal at Brookhaven Hospital
For some, the holiday season is a joyous time, but for others, it can be a season filled with hard times.
Whatever you’re dealing with, you’re not alone. It is not a matter of whether or not we will go through hard times in life, but a matter of when. We’ve all been there, so don’t think you’re the only one.
If you’re facing a struggle and you feel overwhelmed, it can be hard to remember that God is going to work it out. Just like we trust God for our salvation, we must also trust Him to carry us through times of difficulty.
Sometimes we hit unexpected circumstances, but when we can learn through our struggle. We can reach the other side, where Joy is waiting to embrace us.
This season, you don’t have to be alone. There are so many resources made available to us through community and church support. Don’t be afraid to take that first step and reach out.
If you are struggling and need help, call us. We are here for you!
