Grief is the normal and natural emotional reaction to a loss of ANY kind. It is NORMAL to grieve. It can also be defined as the “conflicting emotions that follow the end of or change in a familiar pattern of behavior.
”Unfortunately, most of what we learn about grief and loss , and how to deal with it, is intellectual. Society tells us to “be strong, move on, keep busy, replace the loss, etc.”
We learn to put on a brave face for others saying, "I'm fine", when the truth is, on the inside, our heart is broken and lifeless, so we continue to suffer in silence, and hope (intellectually) that time will make things better. One of the MYTHS that we learn about in Grief Recovery is that it is not time itself that leads to healing, it is the “action” that we take “over time” that leads to healing.
Hebrews 12:15 says, “See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.” (NIV)
It is often unresolved wounds that create bitterness in our hearts. Wounds can be caused by many different types of losses in a lifetime (death, divorce, changes in health, career, finances, break-up, abuse, and many other losses). Additionally, what about the feelings of (sadness, loneliness, fear, anger, anxiousness, numbness, unworthiness) that go hand-in-hand with these wounds? Luke 10:27 says, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart…”
We know that if our hearts are filled with unresolved grief, we cannot love God or anyone else with ALL of our heart.
The Grief Recovery Workshop is an action and education program, which teaches people simple steps to help them learn to let go of all the things that keep them trapped in the “pain” of loss and grief.
