Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
We’ve come through several days together, reading and remembering. Allowing our grief to make itself known. I know many of you are remembering your own grief and maybe my words are helping you in some way.
For me, acknowledging the goodness of God even in the midst of my grief is a way to remember that he alone is good and he is sovereign. I can trust him with my grief and my life.
I felt that at this point in the journey I wanted to say a prayer for you, for us. I hope it brings you comfort:
I pray that we will walk in your light, Heavenly Father and bow our head before you. Help us to allow your peace to radiate our inmost being and fill us with hope everlasting.
Show us how to practice Thanksgiving in everything and live, arms outstretched, palms wide open to receive your goodness. With your help we will love others out of the abundance of love you shower on us . We seek to serve generously.
We know, God that you are good and you will be our comfort. I pray that we find the strength to trust you in all things and acknowledge your sovereignty. Help us surrender to your desires and allow you to write our story.
We rest in your arms because that is the only safe haven. We lay our grief at your feet and ask for healing and peace.
We pray in the name of Jesus.
Grace for the journey,
