Loss

Today alone I read two blogs, freshly written about loss. The loss of life.

Loss of life leaves one twisted. 
Leaves questions.
Leaves one "upside down"
and it leaves some emptiness.

These posts brought me back to February when I lost my mother. The loss is still so alive for me. Still a little unreal. I believe I am still being carried through.

But today when I read these posts, I thought of the peace I found. I know I had so many prayers being sent from mouths, rising up to a heavenly throne, and He graciously covered me in peace. Through the turmoil I felt his mercy. He picked me up and carried me, as He has done before. He comforted me and took me through the steps of loss.

He allowed the time I needed in anger. He allowed the time of tears and grief. But He didn't allow me  to settle there, to be caught up and driven down into the pain.

Tonight I pray for all those effected by these losses I read of today. I pray for that peace that is beyond the things of this world. May you be covered in mercy and grace. May you find hope in His love. May you be lifted and carried through.

"Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance" Jude 2

This is my prayer for you tonight. May you find salt and light in my words!

  1. I really needed to read your words; they give me so much hope. So beautiful. I'm sorry about the loss of your mother. There is so much pain, but so much beauty, peace and love, too.

    Thank you.
