Psalm 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
I learned in the last couple of years we can grieve things other than the loss of a loved one. I look around my life and I see people grieving in many ways. Today I want to encourage those that are.
Jesus is so kind and compassionate and not only knows the pain you feel, He will walk with you.
When Jesus was on the cross, He looks and sees His mother and John His beloved disciple. He says to her “Behold, your son”, and to John He says, “Behold your mother”. So, in the most excruciating moment of His life, He saw their grief and had compassion. He assigned an adoption! He loved them and wanted them to have the support they needed in the days to come. He loves you too!
If we feel that the Lord doesn’t see our grief, we are wrong. We are believing a lie. The enemy wants you to believe that our Lord doesn’t see or care because if you know He does then you will draw near and even in your weakest moments you will be strong!
We can walk through the stages of grief when we lose a loved one, lose a pet, leave a job, our child leaves home, or even just the transition to a new season and we don’t understand. At times, the loss of what once was is so great, we can’t see a vision for what is ahead.
I encourage you today to be vulnerable with the Lord and talk to Him about where you are at. Include Him in the stages of grief and allow Him to walk you through day by day. I ask the Lord to send you a messenger of hope and comfort in this season.
Don’t make a home in the valley because the Lord wants to continue the journey with you and there will be more mountain tops to raise your hands and celebrate from…even if you can’t see it yet.
