Tragedy, trauma and unexpected loss can rock you to your core and shatter the foundation you thought you had.
The truth is, in some way your soul is disappointed and feels as though it was violently ripped from the safe place that you did not imagine could be touch.
Loss can not be described to those who have not experienced it. The closest scenario I could think of is – the moment you realized you left your wallet or cell phone, with all your crucial, private information that can cause havoc to your entire life if it fell in the wrong hangs. That feeling you get when you are unsure where it is, that heart wrenching, uneasy, unsettled, empty feeling you have at that moment you realize it’s not with you. That moment your heart stops as you try to retrace in your mind where it could be. That is what the loss of someone you truly love feels like. There is no phone call coming, no recovery efforts from a lost and found Good Samaritan, nothing. You wake up day after day knowing you can not recover what was lost. No relief that that item is now back or will be in your possession. That “something is missing, but I have to keep moving” feeling.
Nothing about loss makes sense. The sense of it all can be more challenging when you know you prayed and prayed that God would hear your plea. Have you ever witnessed when someone is so hurt they try to cry out but no sound comes from within. Another level of pain where your core is paralyzed. EVERYTHING around you you no longer trust. Blindsided.
At that place is when you literally is take it day by day, hour by hour, moment by moment. Do not try to rationalize, understand or process what just occurred.
The Lord is with you regardless of how you feel.
“Jesus replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.””
John 13:7 NLT
