Bible For those who are coping with Loss

Bible for Those who are coping with Loss
Mourning the death of a loved one is not an easy thing. Often we tend to lose hope. How do we cope with loss? Let me quote the scripture: Psalms 34:18 ‘The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit’. Revelation 21:4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more mourning, no more crying, no more pain for the old order of things has passed away.’ We can’t understand death by our own will. We need the grace of God to feel his compassion. When we pray for the grace of God, he will ease our souls and fill with compassion. For the broken hearted: let me use the example of Job who had to face ghastly trials and temptations even though he was faithful to God. When Job was tempted by the Devil he quotes in pain: JOB 6:2 ‘If only my anguish could be weighed and all my misery be placed on scales’. Though Job was suffering the greatest beauty of Job was he did not complain. I can only say that though prayer you can accept the grace and compassion of God. There is also the future hope of meeting your loved one in heaven.
