HeartLife Can Support You
Eventually all of us will experience loss. Unexpected sorrow comes in many forms and nothing prepares individuals for the loss of a child, a spouse, a friend, or a family member. We go through different stages during the process of grieving. It is important to understand what is “normal” under “abnormal” circumstances.
Because pain can be so great during loss, we sometimes want to “move on” in order to alleviate our suffering. Yet when we ignore our grief, it will continue to negatively affect us, and those around us. Ignoring grief is unhealthy and can destroy families, end marriages, and strain relationships with others and God.
There are always unanswered questions when we experience loss which can lead to a crisis of faith. There are often feelings of anger toward God. Some may have deep regrets and experience guilt.“Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.” -Matthew 5:4
HeartLife professionals are prepared to help you understand and process your grief.
While we look forward to the day that God promises he will wipe away all tears from our eyes, a day when there will be no death, sorrow, crying or pain, (Rev. 21:4) we know that day has not yet come. Sometimes just getting out of bed is difficult. We will suffer, but we don’t have to suffer alone. Grief and loss must take its course so healing can begin.
