Summary: When sorrow comes, how do you handle it and where do you turn?
When Sorrow Comes
Pastor Claud Lowe D.D.L.S.
When sorrow comes, most turn to alcohol, drugs, sex, or suicide. None of these give real relief. Of course suicide is permanent and seems like the answer. It isn’t and never was. Sure it’s the easy way out but the result is forever and deadly.
When sorrow comes to you, stop and think about what you can do, not what you can’t. Even thought it’s hard, think about the good times you’ve had with family and friends. Think about the good, not the bad, even though that may seem impossible to do. I know, I’ve been there.
What can you do? You can talk with someone you know. Tell them what’s going on. If they’re a real friend, they will listen. Be careful of advice. If they have the same problem, be cautious unless they are qualified to help you and I don’t mean a psychobabblist either. Why?
Psychology is made by man and the mind is too complex for any human to really understand. Psychology will help you "work through it". That term is very misleading and untrue. They do not help you work through it. Psychology is brainwashing, plain and simple. No matter the jargon they use, that’s what it is. I’ve been there too. Man cannot know how the mind really works except in a very limited sense and psychology "trains" you to ignore the problem, not solve it.
When you want to solve any problem, you must find the right thing to do, not guesswork which psychology really is. When someone you love leaves, regardless of the reason, you will feel more pain than many can imagine. It hurts. It’s okay to cry, whether you are a man or woman. A man doesn’t cry, is baloney. Men do cry when they hurt badly. It eases the psyche and lets the hurt come out. No, it doesn’t solve the problem but it helps ease it.
Talk to a minister. He can advise you far better than any therapist can. He’s trained in dealing with the inner person or soul. Therapists ignore the soul. They have no idea how to work with that.
When the pain comes, you feel it in your heart, physically. It is there and seldom goes away. I’m here to tell you that you can receive peace and ease of the pain but not from anything man can do.
How do I know about this? I’ve been there. To understand better, here is my story.
When we married, my wife and I had nothing but each other to hold onto. We were far happier as well. As time went along, we obtained a home, two vehicles, and many other material things. Then one day, she left. we never argued or fought. There was never anyone else. It happened because of debts and satan’s influence. That’s right the devil. He is just as real and you or I and he will cause you problems, serious ones. He wants your life. He doesn’t care about you. He wants to see you dead.
When my wife left, I had to take a real look at my own life, my marriage, everything. What I found shocked me. Without realizing it, we had invited satan into our home through movies that promoted witchcraft, a very serious sin, and magic and such. These are some of the devil’s best tools today. Don’t kid yourself. They aren’t harmless. They are deadly to you, your life, and your marriage.
