Grief and Loss
Grief can originate from any significant loss in your life. Losing someone you love, or a member of your family can be truly devastating. You might experience a feeling of loss after moving away from home, graduating from college, changing jobs, selling your family home, or retiring from a career you loved.
The Stages of Grief that typically occur
The most important factor in healing is support (specifically with grieving). This includes support from your relationship with God in
Losing someone or something you love or care deeply about is very painful. You may experience all kinds of difficult emotions and it may feel like the pain and sadness you're experiencing will never let up. These are normal reactions to a significant loss. While considering there is no right or wrong way to grieve, be encouraged that there are healthy ways to cope with the pain that, in time, can renew you to help you move to a new normal in your life.
We do not want you to go through this on your own. Please reach out to us, and others around you for support. Remember that God will not leave you, and promises to be with you in your heartache.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
