After the funeral is over, and all the people are gone, and you are left alone, and the emptiness within the quietness of your soul becomes like a hollow drum beating louder and louder, this is the perfect time to put your troubled mind, heart, and soul in the hands of the master surgeon, God.
He will then begin the healing and renewing process by filling that emptiness within you with himself via the Holy Spirit.
You can survive the most difficult time in your life through the divine intervention of the power of God's love and care, even if you don't yet understand the why of it all. The key is to trust that God knows what He is doing, and there are questions we may never find the answer to.
Nevertheless, our love for God must not waiver even in the face of seemingly unbearable pain.
Trusting God with everything that you are and everyone close to you is a prerequisite of enduring the Christian journey.
When my daughter died suddenly, I thought the pieces of myself would never come together again, but when I gave up my anger at God for taking her away, and lay on his shoulders weeping out all my sorrow and despair, he healed all the scattered pieces of me, and put me back together again.
May God ever surround you with His incomparable love, and reveal to you the infinite flower gardens of blessings awaiting you on the other side of your pain and suffering.
