What About Grief?
- A friend through estrangement or alienation or geographical distance.
- It can be the loss of a home.
- It can be a loss of face, loss of morality, loss of health, or LOSS OF A JOB.
All Of These Are Grievous!
- Numbness. This is a rather intriguing mixture of shock and strength— almost as if God anesthetizes us to get us through those first difficult hours and days.
- Expressed Emotions. We need to cry it out, work it out, talk it out, pray it out, worship it out.
- Existential (intensely personal) Loneliness. “No one feels it quite like I do.” No one can do it for us. We must walk the valley alone – and yet not alone, for God is with us.
- Questioning. “Why did this have to happen?” we ask. “Why did this happen to me? Why didn’t God save me from this?”
- Guilt. “Did I do all I could do? Did I do my best?”
- Return to Reality. This is when we finally gain the strength to pick up and go on with life. The mark of faith and victory is the ability to go on with God as our Helper.
