56.0 Grief to Great Day. Can You be Happy Before the Pain Stops?


Think about life before grief.  Weren’t there days or even seasons that you can remember not being happy? 

Well, in the beginning of grief, it’s even hard to find the ‘good much less the great in any given day.  The loss and pain of grief overwhelm you and all you see, and feel are your loss.  You still feel gratitude for your loved one’s presence in your life though – what they meant to you and how they lived their lives, but the overwhelming picture of life changes to what you ‘don’t have.’

There may be days that you worry you will never be happy again and think you can’t be happy until the pain is gone.  In this episode, you’ll discover if that’s true and I’ll share something better than happiness that will change your life if you let it.

WORD of the Week   James 1:2-4

My fellow believers, when it seems as though you are facing nothing but difficulties, see it as an invaluable opportunity to experience the greatest joy that you can! For you know that when your faith is tested it stirs up in you the power of endurance. And then as your endurance grows even stronger, it will release perfection into every part of your being until there is nothing missing and nothing lacking.
