The Art Of Losing

Loss seems to be an inevitable part of this life while we dwell in this fallen sphere. We must either learn to accept loss or deny it and be "schooled" in the art of losing for the rest of our life. I am not speaking of this transcendant joy of which is also very important in our spiritual application towards grief. I am saying we must learn to accept certain realities as they are. We must deal with loss as loss. We must cry, we must mourn, we mus grieve. It is a process in which time and faith are the only two cures. There is not some scientific advancement of catharsis whereby we can simply take a pill or patch and suddenly in a flash our pain is gone. It would be nice, but, this is not the case. God experienced loss, by giving his son up on what would be the equivalent to our modern day electric chair. We must learn to lose, so we can gain, not only in experience but also trusting growth in our God. He is there, he is to make our burdens light. A funny thing about light, is that it has no weight. Jesus is the light of the world, and his yoke is light. We must depend on him. We must also be real with ourselves, and be angry if we need to. God understands, too many times, we are told as Christians to "deny ourselves" and that we should never be mad at God or be mad at all. Jesus experienced sadness and it was displayed in the shortest verse of scripture when he reacted to hearing about the death of Lazarus, scripture says, "and he wept" (John 11:35). We can weep too. We must weep. We need to heal and during the process depend on our relationship with our creator and author of our very own existence that we also seem to take advantage of sometimes...life life.
