Grief

A long time ago, when I was grieving, my son wrote on a slip of paper this scripture: “He heals the brokenhearted and he binds up their wounds.” Psalm147:3 (NIV)
Then my son put the slip of paper where I would see it, and, at the very moment I needed it most. That gesture and verse reminded me I was not alone.  
When our hearts are broken, we often feel there is no tomorrow and {really} we don’t care if there is.
Two families in my area have lost their young-adult children this week. Help me pray for their comfort and some measure of healing?
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” Psalm 46:1-3 (NIV)

Blessings,
Teresa

    God created everything, so healing us is but a small and easy thing for Him.
