Grief is a merciless adversary
It has no feelings but pain. It shows no emotion but heartache. It attacks the old, the young, the weak and the strong. It descends upon the rich, the poor, the good and the bad. It shows no favoritism. It gives no warning. Grief arrives in many forms. It may be the death of a loved one, the betrayal of a trust, the destruction of a relationship or the loss of a lifestyle. The purpose of grief is obvious. It is determined to destroy whatever is left of our once peaceful and productive lives. Its goal is to enslave and control us. It wants to dictate our actions, our thoughts and our feelings. The effects of grief are comparable to wounds inflicted by any physical, emotional or mental injury. In many instances, grief can assume the harmful effects of all three. We must not let grief win. First we must manage to heal from the wounds. Healing enables us to survive. Once the bleeding stops, we must find a way to overcome the scars. Overcoming allows us to move forward. However, we can’t stop there. We have to become victorious. Victory empowers us to take that which was intent on our destruction and turn it into our destiny. We must exchange our tragedy for a stairway that will reach to a higher level than we could ever have imagined before. We must turn grief into victory.
