Welcome to Day 15 of 31 Tricks to Scare Away the Grief Monster…and Griefy is up to his old mess with the post format trick again.
Today’s word is
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2nd Corinthians 12:9
In your grief journey there will be days you will fail to move forward.
Failure is usually caused by an event such as an anniversary, birthday, or other special occasion. It can also be caused by holiday music or hearing your spouse’s favorite song on the radio. There are many triggers that cause an ambush.
It’s alright to fail in moving forward every now and then. You will learn lessons from your fall. Remember, you will be falling forward into the arms of God’s grace and His grace is sufficient for you 24/7.
I love this quote from Victor Kiam
Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.
