This is a must read. After the sudden loss of his mother, Chad writes this most incredible blog about the grieving process, and the HOPE of the world- Jesus. He is our ever-constant comfort through any pain or trial or heartbreak.
An excerpt from his writing: "A commonly used phrase around our church is “Before grace can be amazing, it must be devastating (it devastates your pride).” To this end, grief is one of the most “real” moments in life because in it we see we’re a mess and can’t keep up trying to prove ourselves to God. Our world is broken and so are we. We just need grace. Undeserved love. It’s our only hope. And when we dare to let ourselves feel the weight of this, we can truly cry out to God and ask for grace alone (Ps 31:9) and its then that His grace becomes all the more real, all the more sweet, because its so clearly in spite of us."
