Yesterday I received news that a friend passed away. I made a list in my mind of all I have lost since 2019. TEN! I haven’t even found peace with my sisters’ death in 2020, it’s been a hole in my heart. Now add another to the grief-bag and I just feel like it’s too much.
I give you my heavy heart, Heavenly Father. The broken pieces, the endless tears. Fill me with joy, happy memories, peace. I feel outside of myself from all the grief. Heal my spirit.
Psalm 31:9-10 O Lord, have mercy on me in my anguish. My eyes are red from weeping; my health is broken from sorrow. I am pining away with grief; my years are shortened, drained away because of sadness.
Psalm 69:13 But I keep right on praying to you, Lord. For now is the time—you are bending down to hear! You are ready with a plentiful supply of love and kindness.
