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.

    • Good morning Terry. That's too bad, you were doing a great job but I sure understand.

  • Any favorite comforting scriptures?
    • I've probably mentioned this somewhere here before but Psalm 77 revealed to me the answer to all grief years ago when my son Nicholas died. REMEMBER. Something very strengthening happens when in the face of hard stuff we choose to remember the Lord's goodness and faithfulness. That's what that particular Psalm is about .... being in a hard hard place and then REMEMBERING and how it turned the writer's thoughts to praise. His focus shifted. Ours can too.
      It is interesting to me that the Lord never gave me a specific scripture of comfort when Roy died. I suppose really when I think of it He simply gave more of HIM which is even better than one specific verse. :)
    • I have a verse that my mom would repeat to me every time I would call her if I was depressed she could tell. This verse was her most favorite verse, I do believe and it helps me out when dealing with my own depression and and other things that are stressful of that are stressful. The verse is: PS118:24 This is the day the LORD has made, We will rejoice and be glad in it. She would repeat that to me whenever she felt that I needed to put things in perspective and remember the LORD is with us always. It picks me up for that reminder which does give me something to rejoice about, as well as reminding me of Mom and how determined to get through another day without Daddy. It gave her strength and I use it for the same reason.
    • Remembering that HE is the One who gave us each day sure can set our hearts and minds to rejoicing regardless of what is going on.
    • I have one scripture, one that has helped me in almost every difficult situation, I call it my life-belt verse; that's Romans 8:28:

      "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."

      That is the most incredible promise of God, that no matter what happens, or how bad it is, God will turn it to the Hos purpose and to the good ultimately, for us and for Him and His purpose, isn't that great? Doesn't that make things feel better?
    • That is such a great truth to cling to Derek. I can't tell you how many times I've said in my life particularly since Roy's homegoing how it's amazing to know that no hard thing is for nothing but God has purpose in it all... for His glory and my good. It's almost felt like a battle charge at times "for His glory and my good"
  • I think it might be helpful to discuss TRIGGERS. Have you found that there are specific triggers, things that happen or you think about that cause you your grief to sneak up on you?
