Just Lost Four Family Members
Please pray for me that I can regain my emotional equilibrium after the death of four family members within the past four months: my nephew, his wife, my brother and my husband. I love and trust in Jesus Christ but I am having difficulty processing such a tremendous loss.

Honey I am so sorry for your great loss. I pray in the name of Jesus for your peace and comfort, as you go through this time of sorrow. I pray you will lean on Jesus and trust Him to bring you through this test. And it is only a test. I pray you pass this test.
I have suffered tragedy this year as well. I lost a son and a bro-in-law only one month apart. It is difficult thing to have to deal with but you don't have to go throught it alone. God will never forsake us or leave us alone. Cry out to the Lord for help. He will answer you,beloved. I love you too.

Oh my, Jessa, that is such a huge loss! Please stay close to Jesus. During extreme stress, some may not easily comprehend the spoken Word but can still read the Bible (or vice versa). Don't allow the devil to overwhelm you further. If all you can do is read the Bible, then read and read and read. Satan won't stop the pressure until you resist, so do everything you can to fight back. I had a friend in a similar situation & she ended up with extreme panic attacks. Please be careful!

Sorry for your loss.I lost 11 relatives in 1 1/2 years it is hard .For you to have it so close together will take time to heal.Grief follows a pattern,first,shock-disbelief it happened, shock brings some numbness which helps you get through the first pain.After burial comes crushing realization they are gone,you feel deeper pain because now it sinks in,its real.For all of it,but especially the third stage of pain/loneliness keep your mind on Christ.Pray,read the Bible.Call prayer partners.
