"Hope for the Day" - January 22, 2007

“HOPE FOR THE DAY” from SilentGrief.com
January 22, 2007

Waking up with a smile on your heart is a near impossibility
when you are experiencing the raw pain of grief. When you
wake up, the feeling you get is that of a sinking spirit. The
feeling that lets you know almost immediately that something
is not right. In fact, that sick feeling you get in your stomach
lets you know that your entire world has been invaded by an
enemy we call death, and the world as you once knew it no
longer exists. Grief, in its raw stage, robs us of all joy.

God, in His infinite wisdom, knew that we each would go
through the lonely pain of losing someone we love. That
is why He has surrounded us with so many visible assurances
of His love and presence in our lives. We can see His
mighty power in the rolling of the ocean waves and in the tide
that comes rushing into shore. We see His love proclaimed
every time there is a sunrise and sunset. We can be assured
of His control over the seasons we pass through in our lives
when we see new life pushing through the cold soil to usher
in spring and all of its newness and beauty.

God is everywhere and is our partner through everything we
endure. When we are feeling our lowest, it’s important to
anchor onto God and His promises. His love is the only thing
that will not change and will not leave. He endures forever
and walks by our side always. He lifts us up when we fall, and
He carries us when we are too weak to travel this journey we
call grief alone.

Don’t be afraid to talk to God. He is with you right at this very
moment. He’s our Friend – the one who will not ever leave our
side. Call on Him and you will have a listening ear. Look to the
heavens and be reminded that death is not the end for those who
have gone on before. Death is a new beginning. It is a place
where all fear, hatred, sin, and pain cannot exist.

Our grieving hearts will one day be filled with hope that overflows.
When we keep looking to God for our daily strength and hope, great
things will begin to happen. We will no longer feel alone, and we
will cry tears of sorrow rather than tears of regret and bitterness. Hope
restores our soul and gives us the strength to go on! --Clara Hinton

upon Him as long as I live.” --Psalm 116:2
