From Sarah : I really enjoyed this post . I suffer from depression. Just because we are Christians doesn’t mean we don’t suffer the same things others do. We suffer them as well. We have an ally in Christ. We have someone to go to discuss what hurts. Someone to take our troubles to.
After Bobby died, I needed Christ even more. Yes, I got angry with God at first. How could I not? For a short while I blamed HIM. Because of the closeness I had with God, I was able to VENT and then get PAST the ANGER. I got past the questions.
I don’t ask why. To be honest, As A MOM who lost her child, THERE Will NEVER BE A GOOD REASON FOR BOBBY BEING TAKEN FROM ME.
As a Christian, I was able to get past the anger and find JOY in my life again.
For Years after Bobby died, I was able to help other parents who have lost a child. I still do, just not on the scale I was. Helping others grieve helped me grieve as well.
