When going through a hard time we should automatically turn our thoughts over to God. Right?

A few months ago, we had to say goodbye to our dog that we've had for 12 years. This was one of the hardest moments for me. The next day I found myself driving down the road thinking I should go shopping and that would "fix" my hurt.

In that same moment I heard, "No, turn to Me."

Why is it, more often than not, we turn to stuff to fix our hurt rather than seek Jesus? I came across this verse the next day, "Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from Him.”  Psalm 62:5 NIV

This verse was my reminder that when the world around me seems to be falling apart I can find a renewed hope in HIM.
