Good Grief

Who ever came up with that saying, "Good grief"? Well, whoever it was must have been pretty smart.

I don't remember having grieved much in my life. I grieved when my first serious relationship failed. When my father-in-law passed away I grieved for a time. It has been a while since I have grieved...until now. Since this is public I won't share on here exactly what I am grieving, but I can share what it's like. It's sad. Very, very sad. But it is also pushing me toward Christ in a way I haven't ever experienced. So because of that, I am blessed to be grieving. It's not the kind of blessing I'm jumping up and down for joy with, but the kind of blessing that will stay with me forever and have character-altering effects. So it's "good grief".

I'm thinking of you and praying that the good stays and the grief goes, soon. But, for now, I pray that the grieving process is productive and helpful as you move forward with hope at what God has in store.

I am also praying for you. I am sorry for your struggle. I hope this struggle can turn into a pristine example of God's glory in your life.
