The lost of a love one can bring about so much emotional stress and confusion that at that moment we are at a lost for words. Emotionally, we are totally drained. Jesus comforted those in mourning all of the time during his ministry. (1 Thessalonians 5:11) During Jesus entire ministry, he lovingly comforted mourning ones, bringing them encouragement and peace of minds.
Death is nothing to fear - once we cease to exist we are in a deep sleep (Eccl. 9:5) The Bible give us so much comfort in our time of distress. In God's due time he will take away the curse of death. (Revelation 21:3,5) There will come to be a time when God will wipe away the wicked and the "meek ones will inherit the earth." (Psalms 37:9,10)
Our Heavenly Father has given us so much to look forward to - to ease the pain we are experiencing today.
