GRIEF IS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

Good morning my brothers and sisters in the Lord and this Mystical Order. I pray that God who has put you to sleep will so raise you up to this new day. I trust that you are looking up to your God the Aurthor of our lives.

O LORD, You have examined my heart and know everything about me… Thank You for making me so wonderfully complex… You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. — Psalm 139:1,14,16

What will you do to connect with your season? Embrace it before it is too late and all your hopes are shattered. You may feel it is useless to talk about your grief because no one truly understands what you are going through.

“You sometimes feel after an experience like this that you’re talking a foreign language”. “You feel like there’s no way anybody can know what you’re feeling. There is absolutely no way anyone can know the depth of your pain. So you feel like it’s futile to talk about it because words can’t express the pain.”

Although countless people have experienced grief before you, each person’s response to grief is different. Your path of grief will be uniquely your own. Take courage my brothers and sisters and serve the Lord in the beauty of Holiness.

Be encouraged that regardless of how your grief appears to you or others, it has a precious uniqueness to the One who created you.It is the God in you that will reveal your situation. God, who knows intimately your personality, your relationships, and the experiences of your life, knows your grief and isn’t shocked or surprised by your responses.

Father, thank You that my way of grieving is distinctly my own, reflective of all You have sovereignly created me to be and experience. Amen

Your servant and brother,
