A Time to Grieve

Ecclesiastes 3:1, 4 NIV
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven…a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.

There is a time to mourn and weep. We must never feel like we cannot grieve. This is a part of loss and it helps us to deal with the emotions we experience during this time.

There is a time to mourn; there is a season or an appointed time that needs to be set apart to deal with loss.

We can ignore loss and just keep on going, but this will leave us with unresolved feelings later on. These feelings need to be addressed. Do not allow others, your flesh, or the world, to make you feel as if you have no right to grieve. There are some who even state that grieving is a lack of faith; this is false! Grieving is nothing more than experiencing great sorrow. This does not mean that we are lacking faith! It simply means that we are human and we have suffered a great loss. Faith will take us through grief, but faith does not eliminate the experience of grief. There is a time to grieve.

Genesis 23:2 KJV And Sarah died…Abraham came to mourn for Sarah, and to weep for her.

Biblical figures mourned loss. We cannot ignore the anguish we feel when we lose a loved one; we must address it with the Word of God. During a season of grief we must be sure to take the Word of God in regularly. Remember that we can take the Word in through the written Word, song, or the spoken Word – take it in every way you can.

As we abide in the Word, we will find ourselves leaving the confinements of grief and entering a state of joy. There is also a time for dancing!

This is a wonderful article. I could totally relate. I lost Mom 20 years ago and it still hurts. Someone once told me it was time to get over it. But like you so aptly said, everyone grieves in their own time. Your Bible verses are a perfect match.
