Platitudes don’t work.

Build a bridge and get over it!  … don’t you love those platitudes.

Noah built a boat and suffered post traumatic stress after the flood. (He was a carpenter – why was the first thing he planted a vineyard and was living in a tent)

Elijah had a nervous break down after performing many miracles.. a word from a woman sent him running in the grip of despair.

Hmmmm forgot about Job there.

Poor Jeremiah was kept in the sewerage pit and God blessed him by reminding him he knew his plans for him, to prosper and not harm him.

1/3 of the Bible is about grief and lamenting. We got to get real folks.
