Lament for my Grandfather

Today, is my Grandfather’s service. Here is my lament for today.

Haley, GPA & Shelby Jan 2017

Lord I seek solace.

Rescue & Deliver me for You are present in my grief, where can I go to escape Your Spirit? (ps 139:7)

For You satisfy us in the morning with Your faithful love. (ps 90:14)

Deliver me from this mourning.

Forgive me my joy has flown away, grief has settled on me. My heart is sick (Jeremiah 8:18)

Nevertheless, You are making all things new. (Rev 21:5)

You are to the East & West, present in my mourning & my dancing.

Save me from the overwhelming sadness that my Grandfather has left Earth for Your Everlasting Presence.

Deliver me from this mourning.

For You have encircled me and placed Your hand upon me. (ps 139:5)

But I will mourn for to everything there is a season, ‘a time to be born, and a time to die…a time to mourn, and a time to dance’ (Ecc 3:2a,4b)

I will proclaim my mourning for the one I loved and lost, for He has wiped away my tears (Rev 21:4a)

I will sing praise + dance for You are making all things new. (Rev 21:5)

    1. Thank you, it’s been a hard 3 months since his diagnosis & I’m glad he is free of pain but I was not ready for this.
