Grief

1 Samuel 30:6

6 David was in serious trouble: the people were talking about stoning him to death, because all the people were in such deep grief, each man over his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in Adonai his God.

Grief is a terrible emotion that left unchecked can lead to dispair. It is only by clinging to Adonai in these times that we can avoid that pit, “for the joy of the Lord is my strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10b)
