Never once have we ever walked alone because He’s been faithfully by our side. Even in the hardest of times, when life gets turned up on it’s end and death seems louder than life, He’s there. Every step of grief, is matched with grace. God is so faithful.
It’s been a year since my Grandpa died. This is the first time I’ve ever come toe to toe with death and grieving. The brain fog that encompasses those first few days. As I process the feelings that this week holds and the memories of last year, I can see God’s tenderness on the tough days and I’m thankful.
We weren’t meant to walk around in this world alone and I am so thankful for the friendship I have in Jesus. Oh, what a friend I’ve found. As we stood there trying to honor a great man, my hands were shaking and I couldn’t quite make sense of the words as they were leaving my brain. The only comfort is that I wasn’t up there alone.
Jesus says, “I am ever so near you, hovering over your shoulder, reading every thought. People think that thoughts are fleeting and worthless, but yours are precious to me. I smile when you think lovingly of me.” -Jesus Calling
I’ve learned so much in one year. My eyes have been opened to the reality of Heaven. When you have a loved one who’s there, it becomes so much more certain, so palpable. No one lives forever, and when I think of my final destination, my heart is filled with joy. Eternal peace is with Jesus. When we finally see Him face to face, it will all be so worth it.
If you’ve never had a relationship with Jesus, and would like to ask me some questions, feel free to email me. You don’t have to walk through this life alone anymore.
