Grief, as a feeling or emotion, can take many forms. Most involve loss of one kind or another on a personal level such as losing a close relation or friend thru death or emotional breakup. A person also experiences grief when they lose other things that are close to them, such as when they quit smoking (they grieve the loss of cigarettes) or even after a car accident (they grieve the loss of a favored car). Grief comes into our lives in many ways and learning to recognize and appropriately deal with it allow us to become a more serene, satisfied child of God. (See: Isaiah 53:4)
In this group, we will work on learning how to recognize and deal with our own grief in different areas of life, and also learn to recognize grief in others and learn how to help them. Members input here in the group is very much welcome and the only requirement for membership is that you have a desire to learn to recognize, cope, and work thru grief that you may have or help others to do so.

 

GROUP LEADER The Group leader for this group is Annette McEndarfer.

  • My prayer today is that the LORD touch each heart that is filled with grief and ease their pain. Please give those grieving something to look forward to with joyful anticipation and allow that feeling to grow inside them till it erases the greater part of pain. This is my prayer in JESUS' High and Holy Name....AMEN
  • I ask for your prayers for a new friend I have made. She is a friend of my son's and she lost her mother over the Christmas Holiday. Her name is Tracey and she also wants to learn about JESUS, so please ask for guidance and direction for me to know how to help her best in all her needs. I hope to learn whether or not she has a computer and if she does I want to try to get her here to CLM because of all the help you all could and will give if I succeed.
    • I'm praying with you. :-)
    • Praying right now for Tracey as she grieves and learns from you.
  • I have suffered 6 miscarriages and the loss of my mother. I don't know if this will help but a book I was told to read and it helped in so many ways is The Upside of Down—Finding Hope When It Hurts by Joseph M. Stowell. I also recommend Pam Vredevelt. She deals with empty arms, those that have lost babies. Also, if you are a woman. I really suggest her book Wounded Woman. I hope that this helps and God be with all of you!
    • Thank you Sister Kathi. Every suggestion, big or small and this is huge to me, is just important enough to make use of it. nor is any suggestion too small. It would be foolish of me not to pay attention. :-)
    • I haven't heard that name.... Joseph M. Stowell in many years. He was one of my teachers at Bible School. One of the aspects of miscarriages that makes them unique is how even the Christian community is really bad at acknowledging the grief involved.
  • Hi folks, how is everyone doing in their grief journey. I hope that as we've celebrated Resurrection Day that you are knowing peace and comfort.
  • What are some scriptures that have brought comfort to you?
    • PSALM 77
      Comfort in Trouble from Recalling God’s Mighty Deeds.
      For the choir director; according to Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.
      1My voice rises to God, and I will cry aloud;
      My voice rises to God, and He will hear me.
      2In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord;
      In the night my hand was stretched out Lit and did not grow numbwithout weariness;
      My soul refused to be comforted.
      3 When I remember God, then I am disturbed;
      When I sigh, then my spirit grows faint. Selah.
      4You have held my eyelids open;
      I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
      5I have considered the days of old,
      The years of long ago.
      6I will remember my song in the night;
      I will meditate with my heart,
      And my spirit ponders:
      7Will the Lord reject forever?
      And will He never be favorable again?
      8Has His lovingkindness ceased forever?
      Has His promise come to an end forever?
      9Has God forgotten to be gracious,
      Or has He in anger withdrawn His compassion? Selah.
      10Then I said, “It is my grief,
      That the right hand of the Most High has changed.”
      11I shall remember the deeds of the Lord;
      Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
      12I will meditate on all Your work
      And muse on Your deeds.
      13Your way, O God, is holy;
      What god is great like our God?
      14You are the God who works wonders;
      You have made known Your strength among the peoples.
      15You have by Your power redeemed Your people,
      The sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
      16The waters saw You, O God;
      The waters saw You, they were in anguish;
      The deeps also trembled.
      17The clouds poured out water;
      The skies gave forth a sound;
      Your arrows flashed here and there.
      18The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind;
      The lightnings lit up the world;
      The earth trembled and shook.
      19Your way was in the sea
      And Your paths in the mighty waters,
      And Your footprints may not be known.
      20You led Your people like a flock
      By the hand of Moses and Aaron.
