Something to think and pray about this week
There comes a point in the grieving process when one feels a little stronger in themselves…There has come a little courage that ensures that a grieving person is strong enough to begin to re-adjust to the world as it is, without the person who once formed such a central tenet of it.
Where is God in all of this?
These are the days where the hope of the resurrection begins to enter our world. Having journeyed through the pain and desolation of our loss we begin to embrace not the suffering Jesus but the Healing Jesus and the Risen Jesus. The pain, the sadness, the anger, the guilt and the burden of our loss has started to slowly move from our shoulders. The God who extended the hand of support to his broken-hearted son Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane has done likewise to those who have moved into the realm of acceptance. The God who wiped away the tears of Mary, the mother of his Son, has also begun to dry the tears of those who mourn. God offers the healing touch of a Father who cares for the broken-hearted, the desolate and the lonely. Blessed are though who mourn, for they shall be comforted (Matthew 5:4)
