During life's tough events, we have 2 choices--resent God and our grief...OR...embrace God and our grief.
Oftentimes, grief feels as though we are dragging ourselves through a rugged valley with little or no relief. During these tough times, we must condition ourselves to run a good race.
Running to God during times of grief has a GREAT reward: It will lead you to His very heart and this will eventually enable you to experience greater JOY...authentic JOY!
Trust God today and embrace Him with everything you've got! He is watching over you and He will never leave or forsake you! Even when a situation seems hopeless, He always has a plan to see you through...He is there for the entire lifelong marathon.
We must allow God to paint the entirety of our individual grief's picture so that He receives the credit for what He accomplishes through our situations of grief or loss.
When life doesn't make sense, pour your heart out to Him. Share with Him how you feel. He is an awesome refuge. He has the great power of truly lifting you out of the most difficult situations in life and calming all anxiety on your toughest days.
Put your life back on God's "easel" and allow Him to paint the rest of the picture to completion. Trust Him, He truly is good! He is faithful to lift you up in due time.
2 Timothy 4:7
