Thought For Today: “Handling Grief”
Grief is one of those stressors we cannot control or prevent. We grieve not only due to our own actions, but also the actions of others.
If there is anyone who understood this, it was King David. He understood how much it damages our soul.
“Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; my eye wastes away with grief, yes, my soul and my body.” (Psalm 31:9)
When grief overwhelms, we shouldn’t throw a pity party, play the “what if” game, or withdraw and isolate ourselves. Instead, we should employ these three things.
To relieve our grief the Lord has given to us His Son, Jesus Christ, of whom the prophet Isaiah said that He would console those who mourn, give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. (Isaiah 61:3)
