On Grief, Fog, & the Resurrection
I'm so grateful that you talk about how I feel, since the transitioning of my husband, my life as I knew it with him doesn't exist anymore. The one opportunity that I had was being prepared for the transition, but NOT for the aftermath. I had NO idea it could allow transparency in all area of existence. That I wasn't prepared for, but I'm adjusting, because it has me in a place now where I'm depending more and more on Him.
Our God is bigger than all our problems, the only One who knows how to solve them.........(that song is so dope)
John O, once again, thank you for being sooooooooo you!!! :):):)
This was encouraging and a different facet of His resurrection and the hope it ministers to us, His followers. Thank you.
If i may be transparent, one of our adult children has walked away from the Church entering into a relationship with another identifying as the gender opposite the one the Creator gave. Loving someone not affirming their choice and the demands that come with it can seem a labyrinth. This is somewhat new territory. i find myself searching through the Word reading of the one caught with his father's wife, the woman caught in adultery on the verge of being stoned, the prodigal, and those God gave up to their debased minds in Romans 1...trying to make sense and for answers to questions. i grieve for both of these souls and experiencing the division Jesus spoke of among family members. i cling to Jeremiah 59:1 trusting none of this is impossible for Him to redeem.
I’ve often described it as walking as though a dark cloud was overhead but this analogy of fog that looks impassive but isn’t, is so much better.
This is good John. Just because we can't see through doesn't mean we can't step through.
This is everything, thank youuu!
