Feeling further grateful for the simplests moments like this one. I can not think about the grief of dropping my husband AND a toddler Just the considered it’s insufferable. I’ve been pondering since I heard the information yesterday in regards to the helicopter crash, how social media has enabled us to share within the grief and mourning of these we don’t personally know… ⁣⁣ As a lot as this platform has its pitfalls, one factor I like most about it’s it’s capability to maneuver our hearts in direction of compassion. It provides us a chance to “mourn with those who mourn,” to hope for these we don’t personally know, to honor legacy, and take stock of how we live our personal fragile lives. I don’t learn about you but it surely looks like the heartache I’ve seen in my social media feed these previous couple months has elevated – tragic accidents, miscarriages, terminal sickness, youngsters taken too quickly, devastating fires, and extra. ⁣⁣ ⁣ I’ve struggled to search out the best response, and in my questioning and praying and coronary heart aching, I’ve paused lengthy sufficient to to hearken to God. And within the phrases of Lysa Terkeurst, “… there is always a message there. And usually it’s only in the shock of loss that we all stop long enough to hear it. It’s only when we are forced to face the excruciating reality of how very fragile, short, and precious life is, that we realize what we now must do to live in light of eternity. Love more. Forgive more. Hold on to God’s truth more.” ….Always extra. Yes and amen⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I discovered consolation in these phrases…⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ “We know if no sparrow falls beyond the ken of your compassion, that you also, in this moment, inhabit our sadness at this wounding, your respond at the worlds brokenness somehow deeper than our own. Be near to us, O God. Be near each of us who must reckon with the sorrow of death and the sting of separation, for what we feel in this loss is nothing less than the groan of all creation. Our finite minds cannot trace the deeper mysteries of your eternal mendings, but this we know with certainty: You are merciful and loving, gentle and compassionate, caring tenderly for all that you have made.” – Every Moment Holy
