What is Grief?

Why do we grieve? What purpose does it serve?

God created grieving so we could bear the pain of heartache and sorrow. He knew that our lives would be tough and there would be seasons of death.

Woman cry in sorrow and men get angry. That’s how it works. That’s how God created men and women to grieve.

Anger isn’t bad. Even though we have been taught that it is evil. Anger is a necessary part of grief. Without it, grieving would cease to exist and we would never be able to move on.

The key is, to channel OUR ANGER in the right direction. Into something worthwhile.

When I get angry, I write. Writing is my power tool so to speak!

(2 Timothy 1:7) says “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but of love.”

I wrote in a previous article about Psychology and Psychiatry not being Biblical? But maybe it is. Maybe Satan stole these two tools off God and used them for his own purposes?

Grief, why do we have to grieve? It’s tiring, it’s hard and it hurts. It hurts everywhere when we grieve. But it’s a process. A process that we must go through.

(Jeremiah 29:11) says “For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you.” says the Lord

I knew someone who passed away today. He was a fighter. He fought until the end. He was brave and scared, but he fought the good fight of FAITH. He didn’t quit. Even when the enemy threatened HIS LIFE, he kept fighting. Now that’s Bold and Courageous.

Jesus loves you and me. But we are up against the powers of DARKNESS. These powers will not quit. They have a mission. And that mission is to destroy you and me.

Remember this, God hasn’t forgotten us. He is amongst us creating a new heaven and a new earth.

(Genesis 1:2) The Spirit of God was hovering over the earth.
