NaBloPoMo May Prompt #2


Prompt #2 - May 3: Talk about grief.  Talk about the opposite of grief

Grief as defined by Wiktionary.com is
  1. Suffering, hardship. [from early 13th c.]
  2. Pain of mind arising from misfortune, significant personal loss, misconduct of oneself or others, etc.; sorrow; sadness. [from early 14th c.]
    She was worn out from so much grief.
    The betrayal caused Jeff grief.

  3. (countable) Cause or instance of sorrow or pain; that which afflicts or distresses; trial.
    Surely, he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows. -Isaiah 53:4

Grief most of the time is not good for human comprehension. It's hard. Especially when you're caught by surprise of losing a loved one. But The Lord will always be with you no matter how you feel or what situation you are. Honestly I had a very very bad time when I lost my mother in 2007. And everybody expects you to be okay after a month of losing a mother not knowing that you need some more time to completely take it out of your system and let your mind completely accept the fact that she's gone. Now this will be the right time to apply what God has said in Ecclesiastes 3:1-8:

1 There is a time for everything,
   and a season for every activity under the heavens:
 2 a time to be born and a time to die,
   a time to plant and a time to uproot,
 3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
   a time to tear down and a time to build,
 4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
   a time to mourn and a time to dance,
 5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
   a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
 6 a time to search and a time to give up,
   a time to keep and a time to throw away,
 7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
   a time to be silent and a time to speak,
 8 a time to love and a time to hate,
   a time for war and a time for peace.

 Everything will come to pass..
