At one time or other, we must come face to face with our grief.  The best thing is to get to the heart of the issue and work it through – cry and grieve what is lost, so that you can look ahead and see God’s healing Psalm 147:3, rest and recovery.  Grief should not define us and we can learn from Kind David’s Psalms.  Life has its highs and lows.  Events should not define us, much in the same way that people cannot define us.

When you are done, close the door on grief, step into the light and bask in the love of God.  Enjoy His professed love in His Word.  Get to know that He is our security.

Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God. who loved me and gave himself for me.

Start again.  Shake off the shackles , exchange the dirty sheets of misery and past (and forgiven) sin.  Enjoy God’s delight in you and know that as Jeremiah 29:11 declares, He does have a grand plan for you.  You can trust Him at His Word!
