Go Ahead and Grieve It: 31 Days of Healing in Him (an incourage guest post)

One of the most critical stages in any healing process is grief. We cannot move on or let go of things without grieving what's been lost. I'm including this repost in my 31 Days of Healing in Him series because it is so important. And as you will read in this guest post I wrote for (in)courage, it doesn't matter how big or how small the loss is, there are distinct benefits to grieving.

Here's an excerpt:

I knew it was coming. I had suspected it would be soon, but when the time came it still hit me hard.

The end of a job I had loved -- an unexpected, yet temporary, opportunity that only God could have orchestrated.

I numbly stared at the email pink slip when it had arrived in my inbox, not really sure how to feel about something I knew was inevitable.

I casually emailed a friend about what happened and she replied simply with, "Go ahead and grieve it."

Five simple words and yet the minute I read them the floodgates opened. It was like all I needed was permission.
