My faith helps me overcome my grief.

Life teaches me many lessons and prepares me for tough times. Grieving because of the loss of a loved one is one of those tough times. I admit that my grief is one of the hardest things to get over, but I know I can make it through this challenge.

On days when I am feeling blue and missing my loved one, I rely on my faith to lift my spirit back up. I know that if I allow myself to dwell in the sadness, it is easy for it to become a part of me.

I lean heavily on the shoulders of my Creator because I know that is where my strength and guidance comes from. I remind myself to call out for help when I need it. I know help is right there, waiting for me to take it.

I am comforted when I pray for healing. I am reminded that my loved one is in a place without suffering or pain. That knowledge is enough for me to gather my strength and move on.

Today, I know I have the strength to make it through grief and sorrow. I am confident that my Creator can heal my pain and help me move on to being happy again.
