When a child dies, it is particularly hard for the mother. Thus the Bible acknowledges the bitter grief that a mother can feel. (2 Kings 4:27) of course, it is difficult for the bereaved father as well. "O that I might have died, I myself, instead of you , "lamented King David when his son Absalom died.--2 Samuel 18:33.
Yet, if we have confidence in the resurrection, your sorrow will not be unrelenting. As the Bible says, you will "not sorrow just as the rest also do who have no hope."(1 Thessalonians 4:13 ) Rather, you will draw close to God in prayer, and the Bible promises that "he himself will sustain you."--Psalm 55:22.
