When you love deeply, when you make space for someone in your heart, when you allow yourself to be vulnerable, you are taking a chance. Taking a chance with love is always worth it, though. The risk of course is that if you lose a loved one that you made a space for, then it can be hard. It can pull on your emotions and you can end up sad or angry or confused. God wants to meet you there. He wants to meet you in your sorrow. Jesus said: “Blessed are those mourn, for they will be comforted.” The empty space in your heart will always be there, but if you let God meet with you, he will put a loving embrace around that space so that the tears of sorrow can be surrounded by tears of joy.
