The Time Must Come
A person in the grieving process should never be rushed by others. You need to fully process your feelings and emotions, and you should not feel guilty about taking the time to do that. However, in order to proceed with healing, there will come a time when you have to say, “Enough. It is time to move on.”
Your sinful nature will resist this movement because it always wants the path of least resistance. It is easier to give in to self-pity or other negative emotions than to get involved in activities where you have deal with other people. But moving back into life is God’s plan for you, and His Spirit will help you do this
“For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want” (Galatians 5:17).
Holy Spirit, I’ve had enough. It is time to move on. Lead me forward in strength, so that I will not give in to my weakened emotional state. Amen.
