Write For Those Who Grieve or Face Death -
Whether we like it or not, we will always encounter death in this life. As a song receiver, you have a very unique opportunity to minister to those who sorrow – to comfort them in their grief. There have been so many times in my own life when only a song could break through my pain…and in the many years I have been ministering now, I can attest to the reality that this is true so often in the lives of those I minister to who are going through a time of loss. God has sent us to bind up the broken-hearted and to comfort those who grieve. Some grieve the loss of friend or family member who has died. Some grieve the loss of a vision or a dream. Some sorrow over the loss of a relationship that comes with divorce, or a friend moving away, or from a disagreement with a close friend. Allow the Lord to awaken your sensitivity to those who grieve around you and receive songs of comfort for them…and then share those songs when the time is right. Be sensitive also to those who face death – whether their own or a close family member or friend – and receive songs that will ease them through the journey they are on. Fear is dealt a deathblow when we know we are not alone. Remind people that God is with them.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me…
Psalm 23:4 NASB
