When you don’t know what to say

Thanks for the call today.  Yes this post is for you.  It’s hard to understand how people react to grief, and when they seemingly have no framework of faith it seems they will believe almost anything.  Anything being that relatives of the past are flying above us, or that the cat is now an angel or even worse that God is somehow orchestrating the whole thing – good or bad.

I am sure that you are, as you always are, a tremendous source of strength for others.  I am sure you say the right thing and when you say nothing it is a timely silence.  Remarkably God uses us, and perhaps we are mostly usable when we come to realize we don’t actually know what to say.

Seeking wisdom from others is a sign of spiritual maturity.

So thanks again.  I’m sure God is using you.
