Grief Needs Grace
“Everyone can master a grief but he that has it.”
One of the most difficult relationship challenges any of us can face is grieving a loss. Whether it’s losing a parent, or a business dream, or God forbid a child, grief is a most unwelcome guest in our lives.
What’s hardest is that grief cannot be shared. It’d be nice in a grieving family to have each other throughout the process, but rarely do two people grieve in the same way, and at the same pace. One person may feel stuck in a depressed mode, leaving another feeling accused, and guilty, for daring to have a good day.
This is why grace, in the midst of grief, is so important. Grace for you, allowing yourself both difficult days and seasons of laughter. Grace for others, allowing them their own process and supporting them throughout.
