My Son Died From Cancer

My oldest son died last october from cancer. He was on life support, and the doctors gave him only a 5% chance of living. I had to make the decision to stop life support. I am still bothered by this even today. Could someone suggest some comforting scriptures? Thank You and bless you.

Some times God chooses to heal people, other times God takes people away from their pain through death. Both are God's choices and he will apply the one that is consistent with his purposes. Don't fret over the choice that God has made, be only concerned the next task God want you to accomplish in his behalf.

1 Samuel 1:15
And Hannah answered and said, "No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.
2 Corinthians 1:3
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort,
Corinthians 1:4
who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted by God.

2 Corinthians 2:7
so that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow.
You are forgiven if that is what you seek.
Matthew 5:4
Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Job 7:1 Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of a hireling?

Job 14:5 Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass.

It is not possible that you somehow shortened your son's days.

Ask God if you sinned. If He does not say Yes, you are free.

Cynthia, I believe in divine appointments. Whether or not your son was on life support, he could have passed into heaven while being on it. Being you took him off, if it wasn't God's will for him to go, he wouldn't have went off this earth. "My times are in your hands" David said. Your son is in a much better place. Get a copy of Jesse Duplantis testimony of Heaven. You can order it through his website. It is AWESOME to hear what Jesus looks like, what's going on in heaven, etc.,

PS 100. I pray that you have the blessed assurance that anything you take to the Father will be forgiven you, and that all mercy and comfort is yours. You are this boys mother, you did this for his sake with care and love, rejoice in Christ your savior bc He has overcome death and your son, though not here with you is alive with Christ. Waiting for his Mom to rejoice with him. His suffering is over. God Bless you and your family.

Cynthia, I am also deeply sorry for your loss. I have never lost a son or daughter, and have no idea what you are going through and what you had to do as a decision. As Madison said, everything is really in the hands of God. For some reason, we don't understand, He allows some to live a long time and others way too short. As humans we see it with finite eyes, finite understanding, and selfish reasons, because we love them, but please, don't ever think that he died because of lack of your faith or his.

Cynthia, I can't think of any Scriptures right off that would help any more than the good ones already posted. But I just wanted to let you know my prayers are with you. As a mother I can only imagine your pain.

We're always here if you need to talk about it.

God bless and heal,

Augusta

Cynthia....The one scripture that comes to mind is "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning". The nights are long right now, but eventually the mornings will come sooner and your heart will not be so heavy. I can't imagine losing my son the way you did. However, I lost my mother when I was a little girl. It took years to get over that. I will pray for you.
---Susie on 7/23/07


Cynthia, don't let the enemy steal one more day from you because of the decision you made. It was a hard decision and I am truly sorry you were placed in such a position to have to make it. Could it be that your son desired to go on to be with the Lord and the decision you made was the one he would have made if he could have spoken? Mothers know their children's hearts and I seriously doubt that you betrayed his in this decision. He cannot come to you but you shall go to him. Rest in the Lord.

Hi Cynthia, I don't know what Scriptures to give you, but I am deeply, deeply sorry, dear.

I read this this morning and thought of you, Cynthia:

1 Peter 1:24, 25 ~ For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

Also, just thought about 1 Corinthians 15:42-58.

My heart go out to you. I now what you are going through. My youngest son died of MD at the age of 19. We could have put him on life support and gave him a couple more years of suffering or let him go be with the Lord. We let him go, and yes it was rough. It sometimes takes a long time to get over. Just put your faith in God and don't blame God. Just draw closer to God and he will confort you.

Hugs to you, Cynthia. I will pray for your peace and comfort.

And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. John 16:22

Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8

I am so sorry that you had to make that decision, and lose your son in the process. My 40 year old brother died suddenly last October, and what comforted me was reading Psalm 139, and being reminded that God is in control of our mortal lives.
