James helps us to see how C.S. Lewis turned a bit of a corner on his grief by allowing his mind to finally come into dialogue with his weeping heart.
James helps us to think through the competing truths we know and the emotions we feel in a difficult loss.
He also helps us to see that grappling honestly with our loss can be helpful, but remaining indefinitely in a place of lament can sour our souls to God and cause us to. forget our place in the world. Part of the healthy grieving process is emerging from the process.
