There is a time to grieve. Even Jesus took time to pause and actually feel the loss of a friend. He knew full well that He possessed the ability to raise Lazarus from the dead, but still, He stops – and He weeps. He feels.
Sometimes God heals in a messy, but beautiful process. I've been like a flower trampled over with much pain and brokenness, but out of the pressing and crushing comes pleasant oil. Oil that I pray brings sweet perfume to my Jehovah Rapha❤️❤️.
Validation from others can be a wonderful, beautiful thing. But if our need of it makes us develop unrealistic expectations, we'll exhaust our relationships. There are some deep soul needs that can only be met by God alone.
