Healing the lost of someone is never easy and lets face it you never get over it. For me, there is not at day that goes by that I don’t think about my parents, especially my mom who brought me into this world.
So how does one manage through this grief? As I contemplated on this question, I’ll share the 4 things that work for me.
- It’s a God thing and only he gives me the peace to deal with grief.
- It’s the Memories of how beautiful my love ones are and how they influenced my life.
- It’s the word of God through Scripture that gives me comfort in my time of need.
- It’s other Christians, Family, and Friends that are connected to me through a common thread and discern my needs at just the right time.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 is a scripture that has helped me through the seasons of my life. It reminds me that God knows my season and needs way before I do and he is there for me no matter what my season is.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that, which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
