The loss of a loved one can be emotionally overwhelming. Death creates an empty space in our life previously occupied by someone very precious to us. As we grieve, trying to make sense of our loss, it is common to feel like we are on an emotional roller-coaster; many people often describe feeling like they are going crazy. In reality, they are grieving normally and should be encouraged to feel those emotions, not suppress them, because God is helping them find balance again. Psalm 30:5 says, “Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” That describes a pattern that eventually brings balance back to our lives. If we ever feel like we are emotionally stuck in our grieving, then it’s important to speak to a counselor and go before the Lord together and seek that balance once again.
