you have to look at death in a very mature, practical and positive way. death is inevitable. all must die, some early and some late. does it serve any purpose by you worrying over the person who is no more. on the contrary you are feeling sorry for yourself because you are missing that person and so you begin to grieve over the loss. the word of god too tells us , that there is a time for mourning but after that bounce back to normalcy. start praying for a healing of memory.

The husband of a cousin of mine just passed away. At one stage, cousin told my wife that her husband won't be back again. My wife told her that no, he won't be back because he's in a better place and he is waiting for her to join him.

Karen: I would commend to you the blessed hope of your reunion with your loved one found in 1 Thes 4:13-18. It ends with "Wherefore comfort one another with these words."

You are not alone. Many people understand grief. Join a breavement group.

Psalm 46 - God is our refuge and our strength.

Dying and bereavement have a cycle - denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
Many days you/we will be fine. Then suddenly a reminder - usually resulting tears and a mini repeat of the cycle. It is shorter and never as intense. But most agree you/we will never stop missing the person.

Karen, I lost two @16 yr. I KNOW the pain of sudden and prolonged death, SO DOES GOD!! You can go to him a million times a day..HE CARES.
Had your loved one trusted in Jesus Christ ALONE for forgiveness and salvation? If so...Read I Thess. 4:13-18 over and over. Also see I Cor. 15:35-55...follow references.
The old gospel hymns were a balm to my strangling, grieving soul. It's OK to cry. Try to get the big picture of God's plan for mankind. We are all terminal. I welcome mail. Eloia4437.

Sorry for your loss.The Bible says to give thanks for all things and in all things.It also says pray and praise God at all times/continuelly.When we keep our minds on Christ then we can find peace through releasing everything to Him.Jesus wants to help us,to heal,to give strength,but can only do that when we let go and trust Him in everything.There is power in praise.In loving and communing with God you can find peace in the midst of life's storm.Growing closer to God takes you further from the pain.

The emotions from a loss like this, can only heal with time. It is a life long separation, from the person you so deeply cared for and it's hard for us to experience this. The normal grieving process will fill you with all types of feelings, anger, denial, devastation, confusion and each step will take you towards the inner peace you will need to move on. Hold your loved one in your heart always and continue on in a way that would make them proud of you.

Hi Karen, you will go through a grieving process like anyone else who loses a loved one, you will never forget the loved one you have lost, but the pain will get easier to bear, I'm praying for you, if you need someone to talk to please email here at cnet keith6365.

Pt 1
I've never lost anyone close to me so I don't want to sound insensitive. The Bible says Jesus came to carry our griefs so I would think you could ask Him to take that pain. Ask Him to show you what you should do to receive your healing from this. For some, worshipping works, for others, listening to praise music. When I went through depression, 15 years ago, the only thing that brought me relief was confessing the Word. God knows what you (personally) need to be freed from this sorrow.

Pt 2
"Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows" (lit: griefs) (Isaiah 53:4). I'm praying for you right now! Blessings!

It depends a lot on the person who died. If he/she lived a life worthy of admiraton it will be easier to go from being sad to glad, glad that he/she left a good example. If on the other hand the opposite is true, sadness will prevaile because of a life wasted!
Finally much also depends on what you think the final destination of the person is likely to be.
