  1. There is no pain so bad like losing a loved one, knowing they won’t rise again just shatters the soul. May God give us the strength to overcome.

    1. Author

      Ummy – Did they know Christ as their Savior? If they did not, then I do know and feel your pain. If they did, then they are already risen. They are in Heaven right now, yet without a physical body. Jesus is currently the only One in Heaven with a glorified body. When Christ comes again to take us all to Heaven, we will all then receive our eternal bodies.

      But again, I know the pain of the other. It is a horrible thing. God will give us the grace. I love you. Rex

Pray for her that God would touch her and change her, always do what you are asked to do with joy having this assurance that a day is coming when you will be a master of your own household by then you would have learnt to threat people well. Stay hopeful don’t quick her house and I’ll you are fit to pay rent.

  4. I lost a 19 year old granddaughter on July 15, 2017. I have my moments, but overall believe I am

    doing pretty good. However, her parents are having a much more difficult time. I don’t know

    what to do or how to comfort either of them. Her mother has remining two sons to raise. Her

    father still has a teenage daughter to raise. Our loss was great! Is grief counseling a good

    suggestion for the parents?

    1. Christella – a loss of a loved one brings a great deal of impossible pain. I know that our answer for hope and healing is found in Jesus. I can’t say anything that will make things better, but I can offer you a suggestion to get a book called, “Through the Eyes of a Lion: Facing Impossible Pain, Finding Incredible Power” by Levi Lusko. He is a pastor in Montana and he lost his young daughter days before Christmas. It’s a great testimony and inspiration to people who are grieving and feeling hopeless. I hope you get it, read it, and share it. I am praying that you will find peace, rest, and hope in the midst of your terrible pain.

  5. My husband died in 2012. We very close and good friends. In his hospital bed we would chat and laugh to the suprise of nurses. The day when the dark cloud fell, i was holding his hand and laughing with him as usual, he suddenly stopped talking and was put on life support and few hours later he was gone.He was wrapped in a white cloth and was made to escort his body to the mortuary where he was thrown like a log. I was traumatized and have been struggling upto now the fear i underwent. A good friend of mine encouraged me strongly to remain firm and news of her death on 27.8.17 has made me to start over. How will i face this harsh reality. May God help me and take away this fear in me, its a very awful and akward experience .

    1. Mirriam,

      How awful that someone would neglect your heart like that. I will offer that I have relatives in the emergency services and they see so much struggle, injury, and death that they get desensitized to it. I think that is what you experienced. But I want to thank you for the a wonderful testimony I hear in your post. The joy you had with him to the very end. So many relationships just fall apart under that stress and for even less. You just told us with your words how much you loved him, and what you described is how much he loved you. He did not let his fate prevent him from expressing that love to the end. Your love strengthened him and he was strengthening you to the end. As for what happened in the mortuary, don’t let them undo what your husband offered you, reassurance resting in the love he left you with. I offer what Jesus taught us about that. Your husband was not in that body anymore. Jesus said of the moment that our soul leaves the body, “Wheresoever the body is, there will the vultures be gathered together.” Think about how horrible it sounds that our loved one’s body might be subject to vultures, yet Jesus reassured us, we are gone from that vessel. He also said, “Fear not those that after they have killed the body, they have no more that they can do to you.” Your husband was not in that body anymore. Trust Him. They did not hurt him. You will see your husband again. He promised.

  6. On July the 20th our home was broken in and someone took my chest full of jewelry that I have been collecting for years. I am having a hard time understanding why? Please pray for me that I may find peace in my heart.

  7. My husband and i lost all four of our children to the state in 2015(officially in 2016) and we are very heartbroken. The Lord is upholding us but it still hurts everyday. Please pray for us all and for reunification soon one day before we go to glory!

    1. Really sorry to hear that. The Lord says knock and the door will be opened unto you, ask and it shall be given to you and seek and you shall find. God knows you youre knocking on His doors seeking Jis help and He will help you. You’ve turned to the right person for help, the Lord Himself. We surrender your plea to Him.
      It is well in Jesus’ name,

  8.

      Marquitta – I do feel your loss. I hope you now have God in your life. If not, go here Salvation.

      Read this book – Intra Muros. It is a book about Heaven. It was written a 100 years ago and it has stood the test of time. It is not creepy but is given out by many churches to help. It may not be exact but this is where your son is now waiting for you.

      Death is hard and it touches all of us, and it will happen to all of us. We love you and are praying for you. Rex

  9. My cousin died on Good Friday of 2014. We were like little brother and big sister. The anniversary of her flight to Heaven is in a few weeks and these scriptures really helped me. I been heartbroken for a while but now I know God and Jesus are closer to me now than ever before…

  10. I lost my father in 2013. We were very close, spoke almost everyday. I am not going to lie to you it wrecked me. I am also in my 50s. I don’t know if you have sisters or brother’s, but one day I started texting them what I call Dadisums…Just funny things he use to say like “It’s like catching lighting in a bag” and they would respond with other ones…It’s makes us laugh and remember him fondly…Takes some of the pain away, at least for us.And we know one one of us starts these round of texts it a way of telling the other person we are missing him today…

      Kim – I know. My mom died in 2009 and we talked every night, sometimes for a few moments and sometimes (many times) for two hours, every night. I am not a mama’s boy but I would walk the dogs and talk to her. It is better but I still miss her. I have a peace. I still miss her but I have peace.

      I am believing that for you. You will see him again and it will be forever. That’s very good and it keeps me going especially when I think about my two girls. God is good. We love you. It gets better. Read the book linked above. Rex
