Mornings. Darkness. Bleakness. Life can be daunting.
So it was for me when my four-year-old son Daniel died in February 1997. I wanted to die, too. And if my broken heart wasn't going to kill me, then at least, I wanted to stay in bed. But I was six months pregnant and had a six-year-old daughter and a 15-month-old son to care for. Mornings started early. When Elizabeth was born three months later, they seemed like the extension of countless sleep-deprived nights.
Perhaps you know what it's like to struggle. Maybe you have experienced a loss that keeps you from wanting to participate in life.
Getting Out of Bed in the Morning: Reflections of Comfort in Heartache addresses the toil of life, the heartache, the grief and loss. Known as a companion through grief, this little devotional was created to bring comfort to those in pain.
"I lie down and sleep; I wake again; because the Lord sustains me." ~ Psalm 3:5 (NIV)
