Have you considered that the symptoms you are experiencing may be a sign that you need to grieve? Are you allowing yourself to grieve areas of your life that need processing with God?
We certainly need to grieve when a loved one passes away. Many problems occur when we don’t take the opportunity to grieve those losses.
But it also important to know that grieving is not just something that occurs when someone dies. There are a number of experiences in life that we need to grieve as well.
Grieving is really about processing loss.
True grief is an experience given to us by God to process loss of any kind. If done in a healthy way, grieving can be a powerful exchange with God to lead you through seasons of pain, mourning and sadness.
