Have you ever felt so confused and overwhelmed by untamable emotions? You are not alone. Grief is a very unpredictable and ever-changing process. Carrie figured that because she had been exposed to some grief and loss situations early in her life that this made her well prepared for loss going forward. Well, she was wrong!
Even though Carrie had been exposed to grief and loss as early as the age of 8, she would learn that the loss of a very dear loved one to ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) would send her on an unpredictable and turbulent journey of grief and despair.
After enlisting in counseling services for herself, she would learn that her human nature had made her susceptible to a shared experience similar to the one’s she would assist with in her work as a mental health professional.
Carrie would learn that even through pain and suffering that God would render his ultimate grace and healing through her grief journey. She found deeper answers to these questions:
1. Did you know that there is no universal template for grief, it is unpredictable?
2. Did you know that there is no time schedule or limit for the grief process, it takes time?
3. Did you know that news of a terminal illness such as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis can cause one to grieve prior to one’s death?
4. Did you know that God’s grace is sufficient and will help during the turbulent times?
