I don’t know where you are in your grief today, but I want you to know I’m thinking about you. This one is for YOU.
I’m thinking about you, the one grieving as you painfully witness the life of the one you love slip away a little more each day. I understand. I’m reminding you that you’re doing your best. This is so difficult and unfair. Be reminded that God cares about your broken heart. I pray strength, peace and comfort for you. I pray today offers you notable tender and loving moments.
I’m thinking about you, the one blindsided by powerful and new grief. I’m praying for you, as your mind and this life don’t even feel like your own reality today. My heart is heavy for those of you crying out in the shower, the closet or in your cars. Today is hard, tomorrow will be hard, but one day there will be more than grief alone filling your day. Holding you tightly in thought and prayer as you work through this vicious and painful time.
My thoughts are with you, the one just beginning to feel the fullness of reality. For those moving from fresh and raw grief into the fear and uncertainty of what’s next. I’m holding your hand. I’m praying the hundreds of “fear nots!” written in God’s word will speak truth and reassurance to you. May He bring you courage, comfort and grace for today and all the days to come.
For the one who has just begun to dream and hope again, I’m with you! I believe in you and I’m cheering you on as you discover your new path. I trust in God’s plan for your future. I know it’s scary. I know you didn’t want a plan B! But I also know you will find your way. God is with you. And He’s FOR you. And I’m for you too. You will make it, brave one.
For the one who has survived more days of grief than most, we look to you with hope. You are our example. You are proof it can be done! You are the one who gives us courage to tackle each new grief hurdle that we face. You have gone before us and continue to show us it is not only possible, but that goodness and joy can be found ahead if we just press on. Thank you for your courage, as it lights the path for so many just beginning this journey.
All of you – regardless of how, when, who, why or where you are with grief…YOU are an important part of this space. I hold you all close to my heart. May you feel God always and in all ways. And may you know you aren’t alone.
