It’s been a little slow in my corner of the web.
It’s been a little slow in my corner of life.
It’s been a little nice, to tell you the truth.
I’m learning about still and quiet and letting things be what they are.
Grief is sneaky. And shaped funny. It hits me at the strangest moments and then at the most obvious ones. Sometimes I see it coming from afar, grit my teeth, clench my knuckles, squint my eyes and wait for it to hit. And then other times I just round a corner and slam right into it – totally unprepared. And I’m trying to let it be what it is because, as previously stated, it’s shaped funny and doesn’t really fit into any of my boxes anyway.
And I’m learning that something happens between me and Jesus when I slam into grief. My heart turns to Him, or maybe He touches my heart, I don’t really understand how it works. It’s usually the briefest of moments – these grief encounters – and then I’m on to the next thing because how can I live if I only grieve? But those moments are holy and true. There is joy in that.
Tomorrow I’ll tell you about how Jesus helped me move from hard and angry to broken and leaning. And then how he healed me a little through away.
Keep on keepin’ it down and dirty. Love y’all like crazy!
What about you? Have you had any holy and true moments lately? Grief induced or otherwise?
