I’ve watched God heal and do miracles, but what I’m never prepared for is losing a loved one. So how do we get through this? We don’t try to force ourselves to move on. We pray daily; we seek God daily. We read our bible. We cry, we pray, and we cry and pray again. We ask God for strength and peace that surpasses all understanding. Sometimes we just yell out his name. We cry until the tears are no longer there to flow from our puffy eyes.
The grieving process is vital in repairing our heart and mind. Things will never be the same after losing a loved one. For one, we will never be able to physically see our loved one again, however this realization should awaken in us a greater purpose for our lives. That purpose is to become the very best version of our self that we can possibly become. If there was something we struggled with before our loved one passed away, we have to strive to eliminate that particular thing from our life. Life is too short to hold on to dead weight that will hinder you from progressing spiritually.
If you do not let go of the dead weight, the very thing you are trying to hold on to will also spill into your career and financial life. You may find yourself in a place of lack because there are some things and or people you need to let go of. Life is not a fairytale; therefore losing a loved one should awaken in you a deeper sense of meaning for your life. It should remind you of how fragile life truly is.
God kept you here a little longer; you have a chance to get things right and to live the very best life while on earth. Take advantage of this opportunity and prepare yourself for when God may return. Your loved one is in a better place and would want you to live an amazing life so you can eventually make it to heaven. The only thing that could make him or her prouder is for you to go out there in the world and WIN! Know that he or she loves you unconditionally and that we all will leave here one day. So what is the legacy you want to leave behind? Ask yourself how would you want people to remember you and most importantly, are you striving everyday to live a life that is pleasing to God?

I hope this is a blessing to each of you.
In Memory of Maurice Suggs:
We Love and Miss You and we pray that God allows each day to become a little easier in dealing with the pain of you no longer being here. Our human minds are far too simple to understand why you had to leave now, but we trust that nothing passes through God without him knowing. If it was meant for you to be here, God would have created one of his miraculous miracles that I've seen him do with no problem many times. But instead he had plans for you and needed you with him. Before he placed each of us in the world, he had a time that we would be born and a time that we would depart from this earthly world. Thank you for being a loving friend. We know that you are happy and are smiling down on us from Heaven.
P.S. I love this picture of you in your music video because you are looking up to heaven. Please watch over us. Rest easy angel.
