Today, for me I can't help but think about so many people who are grieving due to the lost of their father figure either recently or over the past few years or even decades. The sad part is, not all of these fathers are gone through death. Some are absent and have chosen to abandon their children and some are even in prison due to a crime they commited or have been falsely accused. I see you, I feel you, and I'm praying for you.
As I lay here in prayer and talking to the Lord, I said Lord I feel so bad. I feel like so many are going through but my family and I, we feel so safe and we truly feel covered.

Life is so precious and even though I do at times, I have to remind myself that life is so precious.

He sees your pain, he sees your suffering, and he desires to see you healed, set you free, and live a life full of love, joy, hope, peace, and purpose. For years, I have counseled many of my sisters from different backgrounds, cultures, races, and upbringings who have been (S)uffering (I)n (S)ilence for way too long.
Experiencing the death of a loved one is often the biggest challenge a person faces. Grieving can feel overwhelming and consume every facet of your life. It is during this time that you need the comfort of others the most, and yet social connections often feel strained as your relationships and social network seem to be flipped upside-down.
