Walking with God honestly in times of tragedy is a daily choice. As Laura shared, connecting with God, maintaining community, and living for a cause greater than your pain are all important aspects of the journey towards healing. Whatever pain you are facing today, take it to the Lord and allow Him to lead you where He would have you go. May He be your comfort and stability.
