God Sees Your Sorrow
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. Psalm 91:4
IF YOU’RE WIDOWED OR DIVORCED,YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE…
There is Hope…
Healing takes time and the best thing you can do for yourself right now is to commit to care for yourself. Take as much time as you need to grieve the loss. No one can tell you when you’ve grieved enough. Be gentle with yourself and protect your emotions. You will feel better…it just takes time.
But you don’t have to do it alone. Moving forward is made easier with a group of women who truly care about you and who have experienced the same pain.
When you’ve lost your spouse, the reality sets in that everything that needs to be done to maintain your residence will have to be done by you. If you don’t have any immediate family members to help with moving, lifting, repair, car shopping, and others routine things your husband used to do, it becomes difficult to get things done. This is where a network of women or from your church is essential. We brainstorm ways to create that network and share ideas about how to ask for help from the church when necessary.
The first two years of loss are the worst. People will try to help, but they really won’t know how unless they’ve gone through the loss of a husband. At our fellowship, we share our pain. We listen. We cry with you. We share ways we were able to work through the pain. At Sister Chix, you have a place to be real. You won’t have to put on the fake smile or keep your pain inside because you’re afraid to cry in front of someone. You won’t hear us say to you “don’t you think you should be over your grief by now?” In their defense…they just don’t understand.
This is the most important aspect of our support. We pray with you. We point you to Scripture and other resources that was helpful to us. We help you build the most important connection you will need at this difficult time…a relationship with God. We share stories of how God was faithful to us, how He never forgets us and that He sees us. We share dinner together monthly while we share our blessings and our struggles. But our support doesn’t end after dinner…any one of us can call for prayer or help throughout the month.
