Grief is Sorrow - Perspective

Even youths will faint and be weary, and the young shall fall exhausted; but those who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength.
Isaiah 40:30 NRSV


A symptom of grief that may easily overwhelm you is fatigue—of your mind, heart, body, and soul. It is exhausting to grieve every day. Your strength is consumed by your sorrow and endless tears. God gives you the strength to bear your sorrow. You do not bear it alone.


God, I am exhausted by the daily sorrow of my grief. When will my strength be renewed? I am waiting for you. Amen.


If I wait on God, my strength will be renewed.
