We spend so much energy on trying to โ€˜healโ€™ yet, what if we took some time to sit in our sorrow and embrace it. What if we looked deeply into our pain to figure out how we are changing from it. What if we used our pain to touch others in their pain.

If we simply heal (or hide and deny our sorrow) we cannot use the very pain and scars that are a testimony to Godโ€™s faithfulness.

Wait! Your heart may be saying, โ€œGod wasnโ€™t faithful to me! My child died even through I prayed so hardโ€.

As a loss mama, I understand that. We prayed, begged, maybe even bargained for earthly healing, didnโ€™t we? Yet God allowed our children to enter the gates of heaven instead. Does that mean he doesnโ€™t love us? Does that mean he forsook us? Or that he is not a good and loving God?

No, it doesnโ€™t.

Instead, it means we wonโ€™t always understand the whys this side of heaven. Yes he could have given our children a finite earthly healing. He could have temporarily postponed their earthly death. But God doesnโ€™t view our earthly lives as we do. He views them as a passing moment on the way to our eternal home. A place where we can be with him. His plan for our world was that we would never experience death and separation, pain, and sorrow. Rather, he planned eternal life with us and our children. That life is now only achieved through the salvation offered from Jesus.

The very sorrows we carry, he too carries. God gave his most precious son so that we can live with him eternally in heaven. He understands our devastating pain of loss.

I pray you will allow him to carry you as you experience loss, leaning into him and his comfort.
