Treasured Memories: How to Mindfully Navigate Grief

I have never lost a baby, but my calling and profession allow me to both rejoice and mourn with parents of infants (Romans 12:15). I know pain and grief because I was told I no longer have a father and mother in a single day at a very young age. The pain that stems from the loss of a little child is incomparable, yet, God’s Word pierces through our deepest wounds and pain regardless of the cause of trauma.

In the name of Jesus, I pray for your supernatural comfort this season. I decree and declare that the content of this post and the reading plan below will bring you comfort and hope in the name of Jesus. I pray that hope will arise as you listen to or place your eyes on God’s Word this season. 

Romans 15:4(KJV) says, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”

The pain of grief can make it difficult to have hope for the future or believe that everything will be alright. Romans 15:4 is a reminder that God’s Word and patience bring hope. Give yourself time to mourn and be intentional about reading God’s Word this season. Consider playing the audio version of the Book of Psalms freely available on The Bible App. 

Please ponder and declare this truth: God’s Word is my source of comfort and hope

Grief is an inevitable part of our human experience. Thankfully, the great physician who heals broken hearts and bodies has written letters of comfort and hope to help us navigate grief. While this plan was written for parents grieving pregnancy or infant loss, anyone experiencing grief will find comfort and hope in the scriptures referenced in this plan. Join Temi Michael-O for 5-Day biblical mindfulness practices for navigating grief.
