Grieving

Grieving, the one thing everyone on this planet is bound to go through at one point or another. It can hurt one person more than another for sure! It is such a hard process to explain because everyone feels it differently. Especially when you want to explain what you feel to someone who hasn’t experienced it for themselves… I have been through enough loss in the last year to say that yes it does get easier but once it approaches the anniversaries it gets hard. And the holidays… those are a completely different story. It is definitely okay to feel sad though. If I’ve learned anything in this past year it’s been the value of friends that are always there for you and sometimes stay up until 2 am talking you through meltdowns. Trusting in God is so important when you grieve. He is the one who will renew all of your strength and guide you to those who can help you most. Going back to the holidays those are just plain rough. As I write this it is approaching mothers day, which a lot of times we would spend with my great grandma in her mobile home park going to the brunch that would be held annually in the club house. She passed away December of last year and that was the third loss we had faced on one side of the family. Grieving is one of the hardest things to ever go through and I have experienced it more than most people my age which makes it a lot harder. Leaning on God in times of grief definitely isn’t the easiest constantly praying for strength and understanding of why he took that person to heaven no matter the age can seem useless almost. In due time it all gets easier and I know that but in the meantime just remember that the person can see all of your achievements from one of the best spots in the world even though it hurts to not be able to share them with the person in person. Find courage and strength in God because if he brings you to it, he will bring you through it!

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4

“I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say
Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak
I’m finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You
And in the quiet hear Your voice
Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak”

It is also totally okay to listen to that song and just pray it as you listen to it. Words might not accurately portray how you really feel during these times but know that it is okay to just feel at a loss for words. It’ll be okay just keep your head up as hard as it may seem and focus on God in all of his glory. “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength” Philippians 4:13 😀
