As we have all experienced much grief in this life, the loss of a loved one is never easy. But knowing where our help comes from and who we can lean on helps us get through these difficult and hurtful times. As I am experiencing another loss in my family, I look to Jesus for my comfort as He has given me the understanding, that we will all leave this earth one day. I still feel heaviness in my heart, and as I have learned in my walk with Christ, I am not alone, nor is this feeling uncommon. Because we all one time or another, will experience a heavy heart.
And as I remember this scripture and His others and hold them close and dear to my ♥ I wanted to share my thoughts on His Love and Grace. And how it is His Love that gets us through such trying times. I pray that this can be a help to someone out there, that may be experiencing what I am now and have in the past. As I remember the times before I truly knew the Lord, that grief almost overtook me, how the death of my nephew, just short of a couple of years ago; almost made me lose my mind and my life.
So to all that may be experiencing grief, I pray that God brings you healing and comfort, that He keeps you in mind, body, and soul. And that you, as I will, lean all your weight on Him: and as He has instructed us in His word, to lay our worries on the Altar. Know that you are not alone, and this too, “SHALL PASS”💕
Overcoming grief through the help of Our Lord and Savior
Grief is a natural and normal human emotion that we experience when we lose someone or something we love. It can be a very painful and debilitating experience, and it can be difficult to know how to overcome it.
However, for Christians, there is hope in the midst of grief. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, understands our pain and offers us His comfort and strength. He also promises us eternal life in Heaven, where we will be reunited with our loved ones.
Here are some helpful scripture references and tips for overcoming grief through the help of Jesus Christ:
Psalm 34:18 – “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”
1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 – “But we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep in death, so that you may not grieve like the rest, who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.”
Here are some tips for overcoming grief through the help of Jesus Christ:
Spend time with God in prayer and Bible study. Talk to God about your grief and ask Him for comfort and strength. Read the Bible to learn more about God’s love for you and His promise of eternal life.
Get involved in your church community. Being around other Christians can provide you with support and encouragement. You may also want to consider joining a grief support group at your church.
Serve others. Helping others is a great way to take the focus off of your own grief and to experience God’s love in a practical way.
Be patient with yourself. Grief is a journey, and it takes time to heal. Don’t expect yourself to “get over” your grief overnight.
Remember, you are not alone in your grief. Jesus Christ is with you, and He will help you through this difficult time.
Here is an additional scripture reference that may be helpful:
John 14:27 – “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.”
Jesus promises us His peace, even in the midst of grief. This peace is not based on circumstances, but on the fact that Jesus has overcome the world (John 16:33).
When we trust in Jesus, we can have peace, even when things are difficult.
I pray that this blog post has been helpful to you. If you are struggling with grief, please know that Jesus Christ is with you and He will help you through this difficult time.
