Getting Over Grief

How can we get past heart break over the loss of someone or something? 

We must give the person or situation to the Lord and ask Him to remove the sorrow and grief from our hearts. We can keep the good memories of a lost loved one, but we must not allow the enemy to torment us with the grief of our loss. God will replace the emptiness we feel from the loss of a mate, a child, a friend, or a home, if we ask Him to do this. Jesus died on the cross, not only to give us eternal life, but He also died to take our grief and sorrows. Jesus Christ, on the cross bore all of our iniquities, pain, sickness and sorrow. Since He took them, we do not have to take these things, but rather receive our salvation, healing, deliverance and peace by faith.

Proverbs 15:14 tells us that if we have God’s understanding, we can ask Him for the knowledge to overcome every trial and problem we face.  God is bigger than our grief, sorrow, pain and every problem that any of us could face. We must never blame Him for our troubles, as the devil is the trouble maker, not our Lord. God is there for us, to help us overcome anything the enemy has done, or is trying to do. God is the one that will rescue us and help us in our hour of need.  However, we must not be like the fool who feeds on his folly. This is a person who is continually mouthing  his troubles and blaming others, including God, for his circumstances.  He feeds on self-pity and rehearses his problems to all who will listen. We must give our heartaches and troubles to God and keep a cheerful attitude no matter what is going on in our lives. We need to remember, “this too, shall pass” as God is eternal and has a good plan for our future.

  1. This was so interesting to read.I am grieving over the death of my mother myself.During the time of acceptance of her sickness she turned to religion for hope. Many times when you have nothing left you must turn to beliefs and pray for a miracle or for a little help from god. That is something mom mother truly believed.
