This was our first service in two weeks. The tornadoes hit us hard two weeks ago on April 27th. The area was devastated as many lost their homes and some lost their lives. I’m absolutely amazed (but not all that surprised) that God had the book of Lamentations next for our study. Get this…Lamentations is all about the destruction of a city. What?! God’s timing is just absolutely incredible, and His love to speak into our lives through His Word is astounding. I’ve found through my study that a biblical process of reacting and responding through tragedy is biblical mourning which leads to biblical lamenting, biblical lamenting leads to biblical hope, and biblical hope leads to biblical restoring. We don’t need any of this ridiculous psycho-babble that is anti-Bible. We need God’s Word itself to help us on our journey when hitting rock bottom. So put down the psychology books, turn off Oprah and Dr. Phil, open up your Bible, and listen to God from Lamentations. Its some sweet stuff! And by the way, biblical lamenting is not crying out at God or even to God, but biblical lamenting is crying out FOR God. Check it out…
