During bereavement, many Christians face a lonely struggle with their faith, as most of them do not know where to seek help. The bereaved may also find themselves in a dilemma when their negative and painful emotions do not fall in sync with their faith, in which they believe that their loved one is now in a better place and awaiting the promised resurrection.
This book encourages the mourner to embrace and endure the pain of grieving, and put grief work into practice as the mourner journeys towards restoration. There must be honesty and a willingness to engage in the grief process by embracing and attending to one’s loss. Walking through grief can be a holistic journey, which helps the bereaved search for healing and new meaning in life. The church, as a community, must come alongside the bereaved to mourn with them, and to give practical and spiritual assistance in their journey of grief. I believe this painful experience can be an opportunity for an individual to discover God and grow deeper in Him. As we embrace the darkness and the pain, we will be transformed by His love and walk into a new destiny.
