On the other side of PAIN is JOY,
but then the question arises;
HOW DO I GET THERE?
As women going through pain,
our weapon to fight against grief
is the word of God.
''for the word of God is alive and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword,
it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit,
joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts and attitudes
of the heart'' .
There is power in the word of God to tear down the stronghold of grief in ones life.
In my own journey as a young widow,
I held on dearly to the word of God because anytime I meditated on His word it gave me so much peace to know I was not alone on the journey.
''You are not alone on the journey of grief ''
Our heavenly Father, is right by your side. You might not see it or feel but He wants to carry the burden for you and empower you with heavenly strength and endurance so that His purpose for your life will be accomplished.
Below are some verses I meditated on amongst others.
''for I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.
plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future''
''the lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.''
''Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength''
''but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. they will soar on wings as eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
''trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths
Begin today by feeding on the word of God through the means of studying and meditating daily.
By so doing you will constantly renew your mind and remain steadfast and nourished for the journey ahead to freedom in Christ Jesus.
Your story does not end here!
It has just began.
