How good is grief for our growth
It makes us travel certain roads
Down difficult paths we would never venture
If not forced to, by such displeasure.
Grief refines us, makes us grow
It begs us to seek Him and search our souls
Such levels of intimacy with the Lord
Can never be taught, or bought, or sold.
God may allow the thorn in our side
To keep us humble, meek and kind
The truth comes out during tragedy and grief
Let’s see who you are, if you are what you believe.
Our faith would never be as strong
If it weren’t allowed to further us along
Good grief grinds us, grounds us, we reflect on our soul
Then His grace becomes sufficient and makes us whole!
