G is for Grief #abcblogging

Grief is a strange thing.  Sometimes I think I'm passed grieving and then like a cold it is suddenly there with no warning.  I think I've learned that you never really stop grieving.  You just go through different stages.  Thankfully I have Jesus to help me through!  The Bible is often the only thing that comforts me in my times of great sorrow.

Here are some of my favorite verses:

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. - Matthew 11:28

Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. - Psalm 55:22

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. - John 14:27

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.  - Psalm 23

I've spent a lot of time in Psalms during troubled times as well.  I've lost many special people to me - My Mother to cancer, My little cousin who was more like a sister to a car accident, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and my unborn children to miscarriage.  Some days my heart is heavy but I know I will see most of them again one day... in heaven!  Thank God for that promise!

  1. May the Lord continue to heal your heart- so thankful He walks with us through our times of grief!

  2. Thank you for sharing your heart. Candid talk about grief is often hard to find. I agree - there are days when it just hits, unexpectedly and for no reason. But God is always there to calm and uplift. - Lori H
