    book excerpt

    Day 3– by Stephanie M. White

    Deuteronomy 34:8 NIV
    The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of weeping and mourning was over.

    In Deuteronomy we see that there was a time of weeping and mourning; there was a set time or a season. In this instance, it was thirty days. There were thirty days set aside for nothing but grieving their loss. This does not mean that we cannot mourn for longer than thirty days; it does mean that we cannot live in the grief. After this set-apart time, they were to move forward even though they were still in pain; grieving their loss would no longer be their main focus.
    When we experience loss we are tempted to stand still. This temptation must be met with prayer and the Word of God. Many times we do not feel like we can pray or read when we are grieving, but that is where we will find our strength to go on. There will be a period of time where you feel immobilized though; this is that set time. God wants us to understand that it is normal to grieve a loss, but He also wants us to know that this is not meant to be our way of life.
    You may have lost someone years ago and you still feel as if you are in mourning; this is not unusual. A loss affects you for the rest of your life. If we are honest, things will never be the same. The loss of a loved one has an emotional impact that will never pass, but we can move forward.
    As you read this devotional, I pray that the Word of God will inhabit your being and move you to go forward in life. This does not mean that you forget the loved one you lost, but it does mean that you cannot live in the past forever. In Christ we can overcome the debilitating power that grief can have over us and we can rejoice in the memories God has blessed us with. If your loss is significant it is because the impact they had on your life was monumental; we have much to be thankful for as we remember those we are missing. Even though our hearts are heavy, we can move on in life and live life to the fullest through Christ. Our loved one would want it that way.


    Day 4 – by Kathleen Higham
    Your Son

    There is no pain as this
    God knows about a Mother
    A Son died on a Cross
    There is no pain, no other.

    All will suffer fiery trials
    For a little while, God said
    Grief may come and crush us
    When from a loved one, life fled.

    There is no pain as this
    When a Mother loses a son
    She falls to her knees, broken
    Remembering in her womb, as one.

    Tears of life dry, then end
    But the memories never fade
    A tiny hand rested in yours
    Then a Mother was betrayed.

    There is no pain as this
    No answer to her prayer
    Anger comes in gasping breaths
    Questioning, “God do You care?”

    How could this ever happen?
    In your body this child grew
    In a second, gone forever
    The son so loved left you.

    There is no pain as this
    But the Mother of God, she knew
    Her Son was crucified before her
    She fell to her knees too.


    Oh Lord, there must be peace
    I pray that You draw near
    Your Son, my son, together
    Perfect love casts out all fear.

    John 4:18
