Series: Lamentations

Pastor Joshua Lim

We often think that to be a faithful Christian means that we don't complain or doubt and we put on a smile and just push forward when life falls apart. So, the idea of lamenting can make us feel uncomfortable, and it might even feel unbiblical. But in our pain, God offers us the gift of lament. Lament is a gift because through lament, we gain emotional vocabulary to express our grief, we gain greater clarity to recognize the reality of sin, we are better able to embrace the tension of living in a fallen world, and we receive God's invitation to draw near. Lament will not magically make everything better, but it's the first step towards renewal.
