Does grief ever sneak up on you?
Tonight. Cozy, comfy in our family room. Enjoying quiet time with Timothy. Searching for Scriptures. Looking at fun facebook pictures. A simple evening.
One thought caused grief to wash over me. Sadness of a dream never realized. Hope dashed on rocks as ocean waves. My eyes flooded. My heart wearily sighed. Grief.
When I begin feeling more rational guilt follows the grief. Why? How could I possibly complain? When has GOD been anything but amazing to me? Do I really think that I know better than HE?
Yet, HE knows my pain. HE dries my tears. HE lifts my guilt. HE calms my fears. HE gives me peace.
Romans 4:14 Therefore since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession. 4:15 For we do not have a high priest incapable of sympathizing with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in every way just as we are, yet without sin. 4:16 Therefore let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace whenever we need help.
