And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness...( 2Corinthians 12:9)
For the pass four days, I have experienced two deaths that were unexpected and really caught me off guard. Although I know that death is inevitable to everyone, I still was completely surprise. One of the deaths was my cousin, the other was a friend's infant grandchild.
My spirit had been sad prior to this, but I didn't know why. I guess the Lord was preparing me for this news.
My deepest sympathy to everyone who has experienced a loss during this time of the year as well as any other time.
Losing a loved one or someone you know is always difficult in some form. Though everyone grieve differently, it always saddens the heart to know that the person is no longer with us.
Though I have been blessed to not have experienced as much loss as some other people I know, it still saddens me to know that someone else is hurting. I may not be able to relate directly, but I do have sympathy for them.
As I try to put my feelings into perspective, I'm looking to God for comfort during this time of bereavement. Trusting and depending on Him to bring me through this period of grief. May you allow Him to comfort your heart as well, and know that He never puts more on us than we can bear.
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. ( 2Corinthians 1:3-4)
