Grief, But Don't Lose Your Heart (2/2):


So, are you faced with any human experience today you need to grief for and over? GRIEF! Don't let anyone talk you into an unnecessary, fake macho appearance. You are human, and there is nothing wrong with that. Be human. Be You! Grief and let your soul come back to reality. "Time heals what reason cannot." (Seneca) Allow time to process what has occurred. In all stay within the boundaries of the Truth (The Word, The Way, and The Life). [John 14:6]

Don't let your sorrow take you away from the way of life. In the face of truth, your sorrow is sheer temporal. It exists only in time, it cannot take precedence over that which is eternal. Your visible loss is nothing in the face of the invisible. Your visible loss is only a daughter of that which is much bigger. Don't be sold out to the daughter that you miss the mother. Don't be too lost in the creation that you miss the creator.

What will make a major prophet of God make this prayer,
“It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!” - 1 Kings 19:4b.
Did he really want to die? Was he really ready to die? If he was, why was he then running from Jezebel? Or, is there more to his prayer?
