When I was a young teenager, my mother committed suicide. I had a difficult time feeling anything but numbness about the situation. Mainly because there were other life-altering events of recent days that made me shake my head in unbelief…in shock.
Have you been there? As we read in Psalms we discover we are in good company. David said, “I am numb and utterly crushed....” Psalm 38: 9.
It wasn’t until years later, 30 years later on Feb 14th, that I spent an entire day crying over the suicide episode of my mother. Without even knowing it, I had harbored anger towards her for her actions. After crying out to God, I began to grieve for my mama. Afterward, I sensed a cleansing come over me, a renewal and a new hope. Nothing cleans up the heart like a "good- grief" session over our sin.
