The Purpose of Grief
God built the grief response into us for the purpose of mentally, emotionally and spiritually processing loss-producing events, integrating those events into our altered world, and helping us move on to a state of greater strength, resourcefulness, resilience and faith. If we are not willing to face the grieving process, or if we try a short-cut, we’re left adrift in our sea of pain, never reaching the shorts of strengthening that the Lord intends for us.
