Nobody told me that grief would be so hard.

Nobody told me that people would use my grief against me.

Nobody told me false friendships would be revealed.

Nobody told me the depth of anguish would grow.

Nobody told me the death of my son would only be the beginning of horrific events.

Nobody told me that sometimes grief feels like it was only yesterday.

Jesus told me He loves me.

Jesus promised to never leave or forsake me.

Jesus showed me He wept.

Jesus revealed His friendship to me.

Jesus continues to help me walk upon this road of grief, with all its twists and turns, it’s potholes, and it’s unexpected bends up ahead.

Friend, I’m sorry you’re facing the hardest pain you have ever felt. I wish in some ways I could remove the pain from you, but I can’t. I can only encourage you to press into your relationship with your Savior and friend, Jesus Christ. He is your daily, moment by moment strength and help.

John 15:4–5 (NLT) Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.

    Well said Ed….and oh so true. Sometimes it’s like I’m glued in place. Sometimes I don’t want to move on because the memories are warming, treasures to tuck into my heart. I know with Jesus, I am growing through it, leaning on Him. I cling to His promises with a hopeful spirit. (HOPE = Holding Onto Promises Eternal)
