I Grieve Loss with God

I grieve. I grieve loss, as a child of God with bipolar disorder.

It is okay to cry. It is okay for me to cry. As a child of God with bipolar disorder, I give myself permission to cry.

It is okay to weep. It is okay for me to weep. As a child of God with bipolar disorder, I give myself permission to weep.

It is okay for me to show emotion. It is okay for me to show emotion and to be emotional. As a child of God with bipolar disorder, I give myself permission to show emotion and to be emotional.

~”Jesus wept.”~ John 11:35, NIV~

I cry to myself in private. I cry to myself in private as I listen to worship music and journal in my notebook. There are moments of which I give my tears permission to stain the contents of my notebook so that my emotions can be properly expressed.

I cry. I cry, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, so that my emotions can be properly expressed. I cry, as a child of God with bipolar disorder, so that as I write out the emotions that I am feeling, then God can see these emotions more clearly.

As I see my emotions more clearly, I feel my emotions more clearly, as a child of God with bipolar disorder. Feeling emotion is not sinful. Feeling emotion is not sinful because even Jesus gave Himself permission to feel emotion: to be happy, to be angry, and to be sad. Feeling emotion is okay. Feeling emotion is okay for me. Feeling emotion is okay with me, as a child of God with bipolar disorder.

I give myself permission to cry. I give myself permission to weep. I give myself permission to grieve.

I grieve. I grieve loss, as a child of God with bipolar disorder.
