Dance with Jesus: From Grief to Grace by Susan B. Mead {Book Review!}

I wanted to review this devotional book for Susan because I know the Lord is working in my heart through grief. I am learning how to dance with Him. Truly be in step with my Savior. 

After my dad passed away last year, all I wanted to do was die. Not suicidal in thoughts, but I had a long for heaven and Jesus like never before. 
I want to know if my dad was with Christ. 
I want to run to Jesus (and my Daddy) on grass greener than I have ever seen. 
I am hurting now and I have to let it come and go.  

Even my brother died 10 years ago this September. My heart is crushed writing those words. Ten years. It feels like yesterday, but at the same time so long ago.

Words cannot describe how they are missed.

One thing I have learned. Everyone grieves differently. Yet I have no doubt,  I have to see opportunities and circumstances with God's heart. Susan shares personal moments where God met her after the death of her own beloved son. There is Grace to move forward.

Dance with Jesus: from Grief to Grace is not a solution for your grief to "go away". It is not a "how to" book, it simply is about a mother learning through scripture how God spoke to her.
I am thankful for this devotional book. Thank you Susan for opening your heart.

I fully recommend this devotional to anyone who has lost a loved one.
