Another day to try again

It is Tuesday, and that means it is GriefShare day at NewPointe Community Church. Last week was the first week in the thirteen week cycle. However, it seems that we may be starting with session number one tonight. No one attended last weeks session, so we will begin again.

We are meeting in room 500 (Starting Pointe rooms) at 7 p.m. If you have not pre-registered it's OK. Just show up tonight and I'm good with that.

I know that there are MANY of you out there in the 'blogosphere' that are having a rough time getting over the death of a loved one. Sometimes we are so full of anger at God or anger even at the person that died that we don't allow ourselves to heal.

Yes, we have to heal and we can! I have seen people that are so fearful about something happening to another loved one that they imagine something bad happening and tend to 'suffocate' the person they love the most. Are you someone like that? Do you over-do your protection of a family member and make them fearful, or worse yet, push them away because of your constant fear of illness or death.

Stop that cycle now! Get help! God is NOT angry with you, or He is not upset that you are angry with Him. He is God after all. He loves you with an everlasting love. He cares that you are struggling. He cares that you need help.

Look for the nearest GriefShare opportunity. Go to www.griefshare.org and type in your zip code to find the nearest group to you. I cannot say enough positive about GriefShare. It has helped me, and thousand of other across this nation to face the need for grief recovery. This is a journey my friends, not something that will just go away. Psalm 23 says that we walk THROUGH the valley of the shadow of death... we don't stop in the middle of it, or walk around it or over it. To be whole again we must pass all the way through.

Think about it. Take action and begin your journey today. God is just waiting to walk through the valley with you along with the GriefShare group you meet with.
