I lie in the dust;
revive me by your word.” – Psalm 119:25 (NLT)
Grieving is weird.
You kinda start thinking to yourself, “Am I over it already?”
Then less than a moment later it hits you again.
You see something and think, “He would like that.”
“I wish I could share this with him.”
“He would find this funny too.”
“What do I do?”
Healing is a tender process. At a mere glance, it crumbles.
Will it ever go away?
But I cherish the memories even more.
The bitterness of death is something all creatures on earth face – yet nothing is so unnatural, the grief so encompassing as the one that comes from it.
You who believe that everyone else will eventually move on and be “okay”…
While life goes on, we will never lose that grief.
When we think of you, we mourn what could have been. The times now lost in a dream, the grief overshadowing us as we try to march on in this path called Life.
You who feel so alone, my hope and prayer is that you come to know and experience such love, the love that can only come from the Creator Himself.
Please take another breath. Please live.
“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.” – John 6:36-38 (NIV)
