“I am weary with my sighing; every night I make my bed swim, I dissolve my couch with my tears. My eye has wasted away with grief; it has become old because of all my adversaries.” (Ps 6:6-7)
Sorrow and grief from loss or persecution can overwhelm us. We are left with unanswered questions, pangs of mourning that hit us at inopportune times, fitful sleep, and a lack of energy that can be debilitating. Real sorrow isn’t like in the movies where the hero has a five-minute scene of brooding angst and then is almost immediately back to normal. Real grief plunges us deeply into a stage of life that we leave one millimeter at a time.
When David describes his grief, it was a monster that controlled everything from his energy level and sleeping patterns to how his eyes viewed the world. It was an all-consuming void.
“For the LORD has heard the voice of my weeping…” (Ps 6:8)
You are not alone. No matter how dark it gets. You are not alone. Grief can lead us to Him.
Matt. 4:4 #Biblebites
