Pieces of Grief

The holidays tend to bring a mix of sadness and joy.  We mourn the loss of those we have loved, that are no longer here to celebrate familiar traditions.  We delight in the knowledge that we will be reunited again, but today, it hurts.  Our heart is sad, the grief sometimes unspoken.  But your heavenly Father knows this pain, he suffered the greatest loss of them all; the Crucifixion if his Son.  He knows your pain, the grief, He watches your tears fall, and He desires to comfort you; will you draw close to Him?

Psalm 119:28  I weep with grief; my heart is heavy with sorrow; encourage and cheer me with your words.
1 Corinthians 1:9 God will surely do this for you, for he always does just what he says, and he is the one who invited you into this wonderful friendship with his Son, even Christ our Lord.
In the deepest parts of grief, lean on God.  This strengthens your faith and helps you draw closer to your Savior.
