Have You Lost it All?


The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease.

–Lamentations 3:22 NLT

Have you ever felt like you’ve lost everything—financial security, friends, physical health, family members, a home, a job you loved?

If so, you know how debilitating the feeling can be. Thoughts of the death of dreams, separation from loved ones, or a sense of loss, can cause feelings of confusion, anger, shame, and heartbreak, and even crushing grief.

But there is a silver lining in experiencing great loss. How is that possible? What could be good about living like Job and losing everything? The silver lining is in what remains—God. He will never leave you. He is with you in every moment. He is faithful and He loves you! In Him, you have a hope and a future. So, when nothing else remains, look to the One who always will.

Prayer Focus

  • Lord, thank you for loving me and never leaving me.
  • Lord, help me see through my pain. I give it to You. I turn my dreams over to You.
