I was reminded this weekend that grief can take a lifetime to manifest and a lifetime to deal with. We are all unique so our emotions deal with grief differently. Those emotions can be accessed at the strangest time and through the strangest triggers.
The trick is not to deny your emotions from surfacing. If we deny our feelings they will simply be buried again only to resurface at a later stage. When we acknowledge our emotions and allow them to come to the fore, we have an opportunity to deal with them and maybe even get closure. I say maybe because depending on the level of trauma they may need to be dealt with over several moments or experiences.
If you find yourself in the same boat that I've been in these last few days, take heart. Once we allow our soul to fully feel the grief we will be given the strength to release it and receive comfort and strength from the Holy Spirit. Remember Jesus promised us that “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
