In my acquaintance with grief I have diligently strived to be prayerful and observant. In the process I have come to recognize that even the most mundane aspects of my life have been falling into place...like a beautifully orchestrated symphony of necessary events under heavenly direction.
I believe grief is meant to awaken our souls to reality. We are much more than just mortals, and it’s necessary to KNOW that (not just believe it) at some point in our journey. Life through an eternal lens takes on new meaning and purpose.
If I truly believe in Christ, then come what may! Death cannot kill what never dies. Easter Sunday was a true celebration of this very truth.
"Sometimes in our sorrow we are tempted to feel alone or forsaken, but looking back, we recognize we were never really alone…nor were we forsaken. I believe that in our grief we are meant to feel alone in order that we might humble ourselves to talk to God and seek an understanding that defies mortal senses.” - Chris Jones
