Loss & Grief

The Bible tells us that when you experience loss, the first thing to do is release your grief.

Tragic situations produce emotions such as depression, anger, fear, and worry. These feelings are uncomfortable and even scary, and often we don’t know how to handle them. After experiencing an enormous loss, these feelings dwell within us. If we don’t bring them to the surface and deal with them now, it will take us much longer to recover from them. 

Many of us never deal directly with grief in life. We push it away or act like it’s not there. This is why many of those people are still dealing with strong emotions from situations that occurred 20-30 years earlier. 

In Matthew 5:4, he says,God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted.It’s okay to grieve. God teaches us to grieve because we are going to miss someone, but that we can also be at peace because we know they are with Him now.

Encouraging moment of the day: Write down something you feel lost about or a situation you are grieving over. Place your note in a location where you will see it often throughout the day. Each time you see it, say a prayer for the situation and ask God for encouragement and strength.
