Life is Still Happening

This month marks the one year anniversary of the loss of Baby Addis #3. In the midst of COVID-19 and the rocky state of the world, I wondered if I had any place to mourn or grieve our baby. To be honest, my heart felt a little guilty for being sad and that guilt turned into anger…… why can’t I remember and mourn the loss of our precious one? Why must my heart stop loving?

As I prayed this morning and listened to worship music from online church services – I realized….. the enemy wants life to stop, worship to stop, praying to stop, gathering to stop…..but life doesn’t stop. Our hearts aren’t going to stop loving, grieving and holding on to HOPE. We aren’t going to stop gathering and uniting together for Christ’s name! And God doesn’t stop meeting us where we are.

This isn’t going to be a long blog. I just wanted to encourage you to keep loving. Keep hoping. And yes, keep grieving and healing. YOU have permission to think of your loss. You have permission to grieve your loss. You have permission to love. You have permission to desire human contact when we’re asked to avoid it. Don’t allow the enemy to make you feel guilty for these things. THIS is how God created you – to love, desire, grieve, need, hope, and gather. The truth of the matter is that LIFE is still happening. We can’t get so focused on the state of the world that we ignore LIFE or ignore how God is moving and working.

The flowers are still blooming. The birds are still singing. The earth is still shaking at the sound of His voice.

Stay safe. Lean into God during these uncertain times. And know that He is right there with you.

“I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91:2
