Holy Spirit thoughts on grief came as I was grieving for my mother after she passed away from a long illness. I prayed for comfort but did not permit the comfort to come. I kept crying and grieving because my heart was broken. I the midst of this I feel the presence of God. I stop crying and receive His peace. Holy Spirit thoughts on grief enter my mind. Holy Spirit thoughts on grief still help me through this time of grief. I pray that if you are grieving for a loved one that these Holy Spirit thoughts on grief will comfort you.
You have come face to face with the death of your loved one. Death separates you from her. Death seems to be cold and cruel barrier and it seems to mock all the love burning in your heart. In your pain, you question my wisdom in allowing your treasured loved on to die when you still need them.
I am now giving you My answer:
Your loved ones are mine. They belong to me. They are a gift given to you only for a temporary time. They did not belong to you.
I know that you feel intense grief at the loss of your loved one. To prolong this grief is not in My will. Your treasured loved one is mine.
I will remain with you forever-in life and death. The path set before you is one that you walk with me. Others might join your path, but in time, they will be called to follow another way.
Learn to rely on My love. I must be the center of your love. That is how your are created-to receive My love first before anyone else. Step into my hiding place that is given to you for a special communion with me. I want you to receive My love.
Do not suffer needlessly.
“If you love your father and mother more than you love me, you are not worthy of being mine; or if you love your son or daughter more than Me, your are not worthy of being mine. If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worth of being mine. If you cling to your life, you will lose it, but if you give it ups for me you will save it.” Matthew 10:35-39
“Then Joseph fell on his father’s face and wept over him, and kissed him. And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father. So the physicians embalmed Israel. Forty days were required for him, for such are the days required for those who are embalmed, and the Egyptians mourned for him seventy days.” Gen 50:1-3
