May Jesus give you time and space to feel your hurts, heal your wounds, and grieve your losses.
May He lead you beside still waters and restore your soul.
May He bring you friends who love you right where you are.
May you refuse to be cynical or jaded; instead, may you dare to dream again, right in the midst of the pain you’re in.
Don’t be afraid of lament.
You can’t sprint through grief.
But avoid self-pity like the plague.
You don’t need pity.
You have the promises of God!
You have the presence of God!
And He still has a powerful purpose for you.
You won’t stay in this valley.
You’re just passing through.
One honest step at a time.
You’ll get through it, and you’ll be stronger on the other side.
You can do this.
God bless you, dear one. ~ Fenich Jerry
