How to Move Forward With Your Grief

Walking through grief is a journey that has no manual. It isn't something we move on from but something we move forward with. This week on Something to Share  Marcia shares about losing her husband to cancer and how she stayed strong in her faith. 

 

 

Highlights


  • You can’t take anything to heaven with you aside from the relationships you build. Walk through this life with an eternal focus.

  • Losing someone takes many forms before you actually lose them. Relationships change through the process of dying, and it’s ok to grieve how the relationship is changing.

  • Living day-to-day by faith is crucial because when you become a caregiver you never know what a day will bring.

     

  • In walking through grief, you will have good days and bad days. You may feel different minute-by-minute.

  • When you have an emotional response whether that be anger, fear, or something else, learn to recognize it, call it by name, and speak with the Lord about it.

Key Takeaway

“You can’t neglect your daily time with the Lord when big things happen in your life… you need to talk to Him. Surround yourself with friends and family who allow you to grieve the way you need to. There is no playbook. There is no manual.”

The Final Word 

Moving forward with your grief can be an agonizing process. It will often surprise you in uncomfortable ways. But as New York City Pastor Timothy Keller rightly said, "If we knew what God knows, we would ask exactly for what he gives." Do you believe that? We rest in God's soveriegn hands. Romans 8:28 says it this way, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose."
