STRENGTHENED THROUGH LOSS
A friend of mine once said that there’s never a right time to lose a loved one. And that is so true. They may have been old, suffered protracted illness or whatever, but their friends and relatives still wish for more time with them. However, sooner or later, the inevitable occurs.

That is when the power of God’s mysterious workings kick in for those who trust Him. His grace brings comfort and peace. It keeps the sense of devastation and desolation at bay. Although grief is inescapable, He manages it in a controllable fashion and miraculously makes us stronger afterwards.

If you’re still overwhelmed by sorrow over a bereavement, if you’re struggling to come to terms with what has happened, may the foregoing be your portion. May God comfort you with the comfort of His Spirit, may He speak to your heart as no one else can and give you peace, strength and hope. May He also do for you much more than the deceased could ever do in Jesus’ name.
John 14:18 (KJV)
I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
Psalm 30:5 (KJV)
… weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
Philippians 4:7 (KJV)
… the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Romans 15:13 (KJV)
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (KJV)
3. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4. Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
