Loss of Son

by Paula ()

Lord Jesus, You know how deep this grief is. You know how broken our hearts are with Benj’s death. I want to scream and cry about how unfair it is–that he went through so much, the paralysis and leukemia and all his health issues– and beat so many, just to die so unexpectedly. God, we don’t know how to make any sense of a 36-y-o dying– and as his mom, I don’t know how to keep going. I know he is with You, and I know there is no wheelchair or any other limitation. But how do WE keep going, when this pain so much and so deep? God, help me to make it to the other side of this hardest part. Help me remember to look up and know I’ll hug him again, that there will be more laughter and joy than we ever had here. Lord, just keep me breathing and eyes on You.
