Two (2) years today. My (20) year old son shot. I am angry. I just don't enjoy this life without my son. I loss my marriage of 25 years the day our son died. I have no joy. My husband feels the same. I have one promise every night. I'll be in pain for the rest of my life.

Bera, even though the pain remains despite the passing of time, there is reason to hope that things will get better. The bible reminds us that God has a memory. He also has the power to undue what causes us so much pain and grief. Even death.

(Acts 24:15)" . . .And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous"

He has given us details of what he will do in the bible. If we examine his promises, it will give us hope that helps us to endure circumstances that otherwise leave is feeling hopeless. I pray that you find comfort in these words.

God is not a mere man who tells lies, Nor a son of man who changes his mind. When he says something, will he not do it? When he speaks, will he not carry it out? -Numbers 23:19

I am so sorry for the loss of your son.  Anger is a common reaction to loss.  It is part of the hurt you feel.  Expressing or sharing the anger is helpful like you are doing, you just have to be careful not to let it turn into uncontrollable outbursts, as that would not be beneficial for you.

Unfortunately we live in a world full of pain and suffering, but God promises us this is a temporary situation. Please find comfort in the following words: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." And I'll leave you with one more wonderful hope: being reunited with your son again! The Bible teaches there will be a resurrection and those who are dead will be brought back to life. (Acts 24:15)

I hope these words can bring you and your husband some hope and comfort.

My deepest sympathy,

Claire

I am so sorry for you loss and grieving takes time ...like many of us the first step to overcome sadness is talk about. The next is write about it (you just did) and another step is to pray that you and your husband can have that inner joy/peace again ---Philippians 4:7.....
