Grief: How Does the Bible Speak to Our Sorrow?
Grief is the natural human emotion to losing something we loved, whether that something was a someone, an experience, or an expectation. It’s always accompanied by tears, and leaves your heart feeling hot and swollen, then cold and numb.
Feelings aside, grief raises one question—a question that seems to taunt us in the midst of our tears. That question is “Why?” Why did this happen? Why me? Why did it have to go this way? “Why…”
Does the Bible give us an answer? Yes, it does. I discovered the wonder of the Bible through the wisdom of its answer. It doesn’t spit out a one-and-done response. The answer is dynamic, real, and personal, spoken by Someone who knows me, and who knows you.
