Being Seen in Loss: Connally speaks at Regent College

On Mondays, we fast and pray asking that the Lord would see us and change us–making men bold in relationships, making women ready to follow the Lord where He leads, and giving the gift of marriage to those who desire it. 

Today, we have a special treat for you. A little while back, our own Connally spoke at Regent College in Vancouver on the difficult topic of loss and being seen by the Lord in the midst of deep anxiety and sorrow.

She walks through Luke 7:11-17 in a powerful way, and we wanted to share it here. As you pray on Monday, mediate on what it means for the Lord to see you in the midst of your circumstances–no matter how difficult or hopeless.

Soon afterward he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. As he drew near to the gate of the town, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow, and a considerable crowd from the town was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.” Then he came up and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” And the dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. Fear seized them all, and they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us!” and “God has visited his people!” And this report about him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country.
– Luke 7:11-17

Take half an hour and be encouraged by Connally’s story of wrestling with loss and know that the Lord sees you.

      That was my fault – I spent so much time trying to figure out how to get it to be one-click from the website that I didn’t remember to include a link in the email.

      This should work.

    Thanks for sharing, Connally. And yes, wrestling with you. We know He is able. So praying and hoping that God will come through despite what it looks like.

    Thank you so much for the shout out! Only one little correction – it’s actually Regent College (A graduate school of theology) in Vancouver, BC – Canada – not Regent University which is in Virginia Beach 🙂
