Let Go and Let God

Someone I met for barely two hours many months ago, someone whom I consider a friend, lost someone she loved dearly recently. We have not communicated since except for the comments we left in each other’s blog. When Chet pointed me to this blog some weeks back regarding a specific entry, I really wanted to say something. For the longest time, I thought about what I should say, anything, but those words of comfort that I was searching for escaped me.

What do you tell someone who has just lost her significant half? I really do not know. Each time I read the heartrending cries in her blog, tears would invariably roll down my cheeks. That is a familiar road I have been taking for the past two years. I have grieved deeply and mourned intensely. Nonetheless I cannot claim to understand what she is going through now. Different people go through similar situations in different ways but all paths point to the same direction – one that will ultimately strengthen the spirit and revive the inherent faith in the Almighty.

Jocelyn, this will be a journey you have to walk alone but not by yourself. God will always be there to spur you on. Remember that when you need a friend, we will always be there for you too. If there is anything I can possibly do for you, please do not hesitate to ask. For now, I have no comforting words for you except that I will pray for you, for your little ones and for Bo’s soul. Let go and let God. Be strong. Keep the faith. Everything will work out in the end. They always do. He makes sure of that.

  1. Surely no one can say the right words to soothe the deep pain in Jo right now. Reading her entry bring tears to my eyes. I can only imagine the emptiness and grief she is going through in losing her other half. Let’s pray for God’s divine touch upon her and her children and His great arms be her comfort during this time and the days to come.
