“I am weary from grief; strengthen me through Your word.”

Psalm 119:28 HCSB

My friend and I were teasing with the ocean tide, chasing the tiny ripples when a large wave seemed to come out of nowhere. Fully clothed on an autumn afternoon, we tried to outrun it, but the breaker lammed us hard into the beach. Grief is like that. When one least expects it, a wave can wash over, crashing in on a otherwise happy day. An uninvited guest, grief has no concept of time, and it doesn’t check our calendars for our next available appointment.

What can you do at times like these but to cry out to the One who created you, reaching out for His word for comfort, counsel, and strength? The truest solace is found in the words of the ancients who also have walked where we walk and mourned as we mourn. May you find shelter for your weary soul in Him.🚦
