Lose to Win

No matter the loss you are experiencing today, God is enough.

We want the comforts of life as we know, appreciate, prefer them. When that is upended, we can’t imagine the loss making a way for something else worthy. We may never see the loss as clearing the way for something better. We still hurt and grieve. But we also appreciate God’s provision and comfort. We experience his strength in the healing, growth in the pruning, affirmation in the humility.

We can find contentment despite the chaos. Not because of who we are or what we’ve done but because of who God is and who he created us to become.

Winning can cause loss, and losing can cause gain.
