"The "Father of tender mercies," and "God of all comfort," can be your best friend during this time of deep sorrow.(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) He will be your "refuge and strength," and a help that is "readily found in times of distress."(Psalms 46:1) Yes, he understands your pain. Let his Word comfort you and give you hope. At Isaiah 26:19 it reads:"Your dead will live!" What a wonderful assurance! By meditating on this and other promises for a better future when "death will be no more," you can find consolation and strength to keep going.(Revelation 21:4) I am very sorry for your loss."
