What does a widow do tonight?
Could’a, Would’a, Should’a
The wonderful thing is that, as we spend months crying out in pain, God doesn’t go anywhere.
Just as we would hold and comfort our own children, and not reprove them for their grief, so God does with us. Just as we would allow our own children to cry as long as needed before they start having real conversations again, so God does with us.
I believe He grieves right alongside us, knowing our hearts are broken deeply because we have loved deeply. The patience, love, and empathy we have for others is only a shadow of those very things God has for us.
Thanks for sharing your story.
It sometimes take awhile for that truth to soak in, even into a Christian. But you are so right. We must keep praying until our soul sees the truth.
True, he doesn’t move. We do.
What a moving and enlightening blog.My dad passed away 10 years ago, and my mom has been living with us for 9 years. She is still working through her grief. Thank you for sharing your heart!
