Writing Helps with Healing

grief3

An article I read recently was about how writing can help heal those that have lost someone close to illness or suicide. They said that the written word can give you a way to communicate or a chance to convey feelings that are difficult to say out loud. This article was touching to me but so true. Writing can be one of the best ways to renew our strength and mend our broken hearts. Sometimes it helps to express those feelings of loss and grief to others, and in return to read about those that have lost loved ones in the same way. It helps to ease our pain to see what others have gone through; how they overcome their struggles with letting go, and how they made it through the grieving process. Grieving the loss of a family members can be one of the most difficult things a person has to go through in their lives. Sometimes It helps to express your feelings either on paper or to a close friend about the struggles that you are going through.

When I am at a loss for words, I often place my Bible in front of me, say a prayer and start reading. It is then that the Lord speaks to me through his written word and I am able to jot down my own thoughts on paper as well. I am able to express feelings of hurt or confusion or anger that I didn’t realize maybe I had. I have learned to lean on someone much higher, which is God the Father for answers and for comfort. The words that I write I believe often are inspired by his scriptures, which brings the peace that I need when suffering loss.
