The only way to fully heal from our deepest wounds is to allow ourself to fully feel the grief.

For many of us, I think our greatest fear in allowing ourselves to feel our pain is that we might fall so deep into the abyss that we’ll remain there, unable to recover.
And yes, part of this journey involves seasons of darkness, this is never our final destination.
Eventually we find the strength and courage to look up and we are met with a glimmer of light; and like water to our thirsty souls we embrace it once again and find ourselves experiencing a deeper sense of joy, unlike anything we’ve known before.
