Philippians 3:7-8 | Dealing With Loss


But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ.



  • Take time to make a list of losses you have experienced and make note of the steps you have taken to mourn each loss.
  • Next, make a list of your gains in Christ and pause for a time of praise to the Lord for all He has done on your behalf.
  • Write down the names of several people who you know are experiencing loss at this time. Send an email, write a personal note, or give them a call to let them know you are praying for them.
