Loss of a Loved One
We Were Made for These Times My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment and often righteous rage over the latest degradations of what matters most to civilized, visionary people.
5 Lies You Were Told about Grief. Powerful truth, strong language.
O that in Sheol [gravedom] you would conceal me, that you would keep me in secret until your anger turns back, that you would set a time limit for me and remember me! If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait, until my relief comes. You [Jehovah God] will call, and I myself shall answer you. For the work of your hands you will have a yearning" (Job 14:13-15)
