EP. 20: Dealing with Loss

We all experience loss. The loss of dreams. The loss of relationships. The loss of people we love. But we serve a God who can use loss for our good, and that’s what today’s episode is all about. Join Elisa and Eryn as they discuss not only what they’ve lost, but also what they’ve found.

Notes and Quotes:

“I went through a divorce; and before the divorce I was grieving what I thought I had [as a future]. Divorce is a death; it is like a death.” Treat your marriage, or other relationship, like its own breathing entity. Is it healthy? “Loss is like a bucking bronco. It throws us up in the air, and sometimes we come down and land on the back of the horse and sometimes we . . . land in the dirt.” “You can experience so many kinds of different losses, but you can still have the same emotion towards it.” “Loss changes you. You are not the same when you lose something. Like for me, I am not the same with marriage. It changed me.” “Loss does shape us, and I think sometimes we are scared of what the shaping is going to be.” “What if loss actually grows us as we do the grief work.” How have you seen loss benefit your life? “God will use pain to transform us.” “Loss is inevitable, and there are certain lessons and gifts it provides as God redeems it.” “Loss becomes a gift because from that we are able to minister to others.” “Sometimes we are missing out on how He is redeeming because we are trying to take over and make Him redeem it how we would want it.” Links/Books/Resources Mentioned In Show:
