The Hard Part

What is the hard part of this journey of grief?
It's the same as it was at the beginning.

Being faithful to speak Truth to ourselves.  
To stand firmly upon it and not to waver.

And, as we seek to do all the above,
we must refuse to feel sorry for ourselves.

It's not for the faint of heart, that's for sure.
But, it is always worth the battle.
And, through it all, the Lord remains faithful.

One foot in front of the other.  Step by step.
Moment by moment.  Until the day we are called Home.

Whatever it is you may be facing, be sure to face it with the Lord.
Fill your hearts and minds up with the Truth found in His Word.
Stand upon it.  Rely on it.  And rest your soul in Him.

With Love,

Awww, I can't imagine doing life without Him. Don't know how people do it. It is hard enough with Him. But knowing that He is ultimately in control and is the definition of "good" is what keeps me going even when I don't understand His ways. You continue to grieve well, my friend.

Love and Hugs,
