They say that grief waits. I think it lurks. Then, it leaks.
It’s a mess.
When it’s time to let it out – to grieve in healthy ways – it is not usually convenient. It is necessary to leave time to let the emotions flow.
Please, don’t avoid grief. Move through it. Ignore the grieving, and you may be setting up camp in the middle of a valley experience, only pretending to leave it behind.
If God is inviting you to walk though a valley with him, it is an invitation toward freedom.
Question to Ponder:
Do you sense there is grieving God is inviting you to walk through with Him?
Psalm 23:4 (ESV) Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
