Where you are today.
Exactly where you are today.
You may be in the depths of despair.
You may be a quarter of the way through your grief journey.
Perhaps you’ve thoroughly been through several grief journeys, have found healing, and are currently loving/encouraging others through their pain.
No matter where you are, right now, today…
..you and your grief have great value.
Exactly where you are today.
There are multiple layers of grief – and multiple people who are grieving around you…you may not even realize who they are.
And somebody desperately needs your encouragement, your story, and your perspective.
Today…choose one day out of each week…to simply be at peace where you are in your grief, create peace in your life, and offer that same peace to others.
Instead of trying to figure out grief…let’s instead make peace with exactly where we are and just take the time to offer love, encouragement, and understanding to those around us and online.
The beautiful thing about life – and grief – is we don’t have to be fully healed or have fully arrived at healing to offer hope and empathy.
There are few things more important than love, empathy, encouragement and hope. Offering these rare, exquisite gifts can make all the difference in the world.
Who can you offer hope, love, empathy and encouragement this week?
How can you create more peace and loving acceptance for your own grief journey and heart today?
Ask God to pour His love, peace, encouragement and hope into you, and to make your heart sensitive to those around you who are hurting.
You never know how God can use you to help others who are drowning in their grief.
Your grief experience has far more value than you can possibly know…EVERY layer of it…
…you are going to be an absolute jewel to those who are hurting.
