When a change comes into my life, by choice or by surprise, I’m learning to grieve first before moving into the next phase. Of course, sometimes grief is put off until we get our feet under us again, but grief requires our attention.
I’m afloat after an intentional change. The process of grief doesn’t keep me from doing life, but it has kept me from creative endeavors. I’m learning to be okay with that. To be afloat with God all day, letting the next thing be the next thing and not working to craft a plan for the next thing.
When you’re afloat, try talking to God saying all that is in your heart, then look around and choose what is the next healing thing you can see. Do that and tell me how it works for you.
