“Still, I must tell you the truth: it is for your own good that I am going because unless I go, the Advocate will not come to you”

John 16:5-11

In this passage, Jesus reminds us that at times we will lose what we hold dear to our hearts. There are many things that we can lose, such as material wealth, job, friendships or relationships that don’t work out, a death of a close one.

However, losing those may force us to grow out of our comfort zone and push ourselves to learn to depend more on God. We need to remember, that no matter what we are going through, God is always with us on this journey, and He feels the same sorrow that we feel. We sometimes need to lose something in order to gain another. In this case, we need to be reminded that the Holy Spirit is always with us lifting us up. “Thank you God for you, the wind beneath my wings”
