1. I am sorry for your losses. Grief is a terrible thing and it better to hold onto the good memories instead of it. I have seen it work hand in hand with depression. Give your heart a chance to heal, that’s a lot for someone so young.

    1. Rebecca,

      I could not agree more, I am so thankful for every beautiful memory I have with each person I have lost. It is also a reminder in the present to love the people in my life well every day. A healing heart is a process God has been doing in me for a long time, I am thankful He can comfort us and restore us all at the same time, it’s a beautiful thing! Thank you for your words!

  2. I lost my sister unexpectedly 6 weeks ago. I am grieving hard, but I know God is upholding me. I am leaning on Him. I am grieving with hope. She was my only sibling and both of my parents are gone. It is one of the most painful things I have gone through, but I know God is with me.

    1. Peggy, Take one day at a time. Give yourself room to grieve and miss her. Continue to trust Him, allow Him to lead one step at a time. He has been faithful to meet me in every step over the years. I am praying for immeasurable comfort and a cascade of beautiful memories that you can hold close. You are not alone in this Peggy. Sending big hugs from North Carolina. Feel free to email me any time. displayinggrace@gmail.com

  3. Grief is so hard to share with someone, so thank you for using yours to help us. Go sure is a redeemer!

    1. Sarah, it really is hard to share. It’s like opening a door to your heart for all to see, but I am grateful that God gave me the chance to share with you.

  4. Beautiful, Rachel. I love, “Bold faith isn’t always easy, but it is born from immeasurable confidence in God.” So true. Our family is walking through a season of grief right now … and oh … the ache. Also love your ending sentences … “Bold faith in seasons of grieving has nothing to do with the strength within us, our bravery will fail us in these moments, but the Spirit of the Living God will hold you up.” I love this. Such encouragement!

    1. Thank you so much Dianne for your kind words!

  5. Thanks for allowing Michelle to share this with us. Losses are not easy as you say, though I have not yet lost anyone super close to me, I don’t want to live in fear. I hope I can have bold faith as you have, friend. These are delicate times and I appreciate your willingness to open up and show us we can all let God work in our lives, no matter the season.

    1. I am grateful for the chance to share my heart. I pray that it will help encourage someone walking into a hard season of grief.
