We often times think that grief is only associated with a loved one that has died. Understand the meaning of this: man is destined to die once, after that judgment, Hebrew 9:27.
However, grief is a part of life that we must walk thru in various areas of our life, 1 Peter 1:6-7.
Grief is mental suffering or distress over an affliction. King Solomon had some very wise words about grief that are just as applicable today as when he said them, Proverbs 10.
When you are dealing with a broken heart, the LORD is close to the brokenhearted; HE rescues those whose spirits are crushed. Psalm 34:18
We can’t escape grief; however, we can lessen the amount of grief we experience. When we do what is right and try to live in harmony with all if possible; we don’t have to worry about being found out because we have said or did something that was wrong. So when grief come walk through it. If it comes through death; allow the hurt to be. Cry; scream; take a few minutes to be alone. Most importantly get around others who are hurting as you are regarding that person so that you all can support each other. Then immerse yourself in cheer; happy music, comedies and people that you know causes you to laugh. If it come through something that you did or said; stop and apologize to those that you have offended. Work towards not being that type of person any longer.
