It seems strange to think about grieving = growing, but I've ignored some things in my past and I need to sort through them. I look back now and I don't know where to begin or how to begin the grieving process! Voila! Here's an opportunity designed to help me do just that! God's working in me and I want to obey.
Some of the topics of grieving include:
- Job loss
- Loss of a loved one
Looks like I've got a lot to learn. Each of the above listed topics have affected me personally and I want to deal with them individually. I think this will help me learn from my mistakes (or the choices I've made), introduce positive coping skills in my life, and more importantly I will learn how to lay these things at Jesus' feet through grieving. I think this is NOT going to be easy. I feel many different emotions as I type this blog, but I know God's way does not equal the easy way. So this journey begins tonight and I'm going to miss my friends at The Gathering, but I know I'll be a better person for having done this.
