A season of mourning...

Getting Through What You're Going Through

1. Loss is unavoidable but grief is a choice!

Grief is the key to spiritual growth.

See John 11:36 (Jesus wept)

2. Grieving is healthy!

If we don't let grief out (tears, emotions, talk, etc.) it will act out.

3. God grieves with me!

God enters into my sorrow with me.

See Psalm 34:18 (God is close to the broken hearted)

4. Grief is healed in community!

We are better together!!!
We are made for relationship!!!

Galatians 6:2 (Share in one another's sorrows)


5. Grief takes time!

Do NOT try to rush this journey. Loss (grief) takes time.

You don't get over grief (loss), you get through it!

Ecclesiastes 3:1-4
There is a time to weep.

This is a season of mourning.

Learn to lament - Acknowledge your loss - Don't try to fix it!
