Sometimes life just plain hurts. There are no two ways about it. I’m sure you’ve felt that way, too. Does it help when your friends tell you to look for the positive? Probably not, right? Sometimes we just need to be heard, no matter how we’re feeling.
This week, Maree shares about a time in her life when she was suffering and feeling discouraged. The words of others, though well-meaning, ended up hurting even more.
So how can we help when a friend is suffering? How can we offer support when a loved one is struggling? How can we move forward in our own times of frustration?
Maree shares the hope that finally got to her heart. When we walk in seasons of suffering, we just need a friend to come alongside. Maree describes what that looked like in her life, and offers practical tips for when it is our turn to help a loved one.
Thank you for linking up with us at Grace & Truth, Maree, and for sharing these tips to help others who are in a season of suffering.
