A friend of mine just lost his adult son tragically.
This is on the heels of losing his wife,
about a year ago.
Forgive my simplicity, but may I give you a few brief insights on the subject of grief?
- Around Grief
- About Grief
- Before Grief
- Behind Grief
Around Grief: We wonder why, but, I’m sorry to say, “Why belongs to God” (Proverbs 3:5-6).
About Grief: God often DOES, give us more them we can handle . . . so that we HAVE TO rely upon Him (Psalm 17:8)
Before Grief: God’s throne is above the heavens and He is still Sovereign OVER ALL (Psalm 103:19).
Behind Grief: Jesus wept (John 11:35) just a few verses before He raises Lazarus from the dead, which He ALREADY planned to do, which tells me it’s okay for you to grieve, even if you grieve differently than others.
I hope this was helpful.
