“Laughter can conceal a heavy heart,
but when the laughter ends, the grief remains.”

Grief is something that is very hard to cover up, but many have tried and failed. If you cover up your grief, its like put a bucket under a leak in your ceiling. The bucket will eventually over-flow and the roof will still need to be repaired.
If you wait to deal with the issue too long, that leak will cost you much more, in the long run! These are not suggestions but examples of expressions of grief in the bible:
Job stood up and tore his robe in grief. Then he shaved his head and fell to the ground to worship.Job 1:20
When they saw Job from a distance, they scarcely recognized him. Wailing loudly, they tore their robes and threw dust into the air over their heads to show their grief.Job 2:12
“…weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.Psalm 30:5
It’s OK to weep and mourn your lost love ones, but don’t let grief take away your hope. Don’t let it bring you to depression, because as Christians we don’t grieve like the world does. I leave you with these scriptures:
A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance.”Ecclesiastes 3:4
And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope.1 Thessalonians 4:13
If you have not received Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, then do it now, and you will be a child of God and your citizenship will be in heaven with Jesus Christ!
Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”
SAY this beginning PRAYER:
God I’m a sinner and right now I turn from my sins. I ask you to forgive my sins, that I may be right with you. I believe that Jesus Christ: lived, died and that He rose from the dead. Right now, I ask you Jesus to be my Savior and Lord, that I may have eternal life in heaven. Thank you God for saving me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen!
We hope today’s devotion has inspired you. We love you guys, and are constantly praying for you. Have a very blessed day.
