Grieving can be the most difficult time for people. We try to balance the feelings of pain and loss while going forward with your everyday life. Overcoming grief is possible.
“Death is not death and the spirit doesn’t die, but rather enters new channels of life…our relationships are not severed at death, but refocused beyond physical connection.” ~ Marianne Williamson
There is no comparing grief because everyone is different.
Processing the pain, sadness, loss, longing, anger, loneliness and devastation will be as individual as we are people. Sometimes words aren’t enough because the pain is too deep.
LISTENING is one of the most important things you can receive: You are allowed the space and freedom to cry and talk about your loved ones without interruption. Our reaction is to try and ‘fix’ them but grief takes TIME, PATIENCE and LOVE.
Most people go through a grieving process. The key to victory is an understanding of the difference between a normal, balanced grieving process and a spirit of grief that will try to attach itself to the hurting person. One helps the grieving person get better with the passing of time; the other causes him to get worse and sink deeper and deeper into the pit of despair.
A spirit of grief can gain an inroad, not just after the death of a loved one, but also from:
- A shattered relationship
- A myriad of other discouraging, devastating and damaging life events
What Satan intends for your harm, God can turn around for your good! It starts with a Prayer of Deliverance: a prayer in Jesus’ name against any form of evil that may be attacking them spiritually:
- “I break the curse of depression, self-pity, grief, broken-hardheartedness and bind and deliver all demons that came in to enforce those curses to go to the pit, in Jesus name never to return.”
This prayer is used by someone who either has a gift of deliverance or someone who is very spiritual and without sin who may not even know that they have the power of deliverance. (The devil only laughs at the person who is sinful and attempts deliverance). Be advised that no one should be touching the person being delivered.
This is followed by a prayer of thanks. After deliverance, you must pray a simple prayer every day until you are free: “I thank and praise You, Lord, for Your healing!” which is a reflection of your faith, which is a very important ingredient. You must have faith that God is with you every step of the way. (Faith means that you’re thanking God before it happens.)
Be patient and eventually you will see progress. God’s strength allows you to move on in your desired direction.
In the end you will thank Jesus for lifting your spirits during the low points of your journey, and with sustaining you through the high points of it
- Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4
- He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3
- And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
- “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
With this collection of bible verses, we can turn to God’s word for ease and comfort as we look to overcoming grief.
- Christians don’t shout, “I am clean living!” They whisper “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.”
- Christians don’t speak of this with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they are trying to be strong because they are really weak and need strength.
- Christians don’t brag of success, but they admit that they are failing and they need God to clean up the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect. Their flaws are far too visible but God believes they are worth it.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain and they have their share of headaches but they call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than thou. They are also simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.
“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.” Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to this Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading the Gospel according to Luke and then John: It is all about love and you will love it. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. Soaking yourself in the love of God defends you from attacks of the enemy.
