Jennifer, I am sorry to hear that you aren't getting the support that you need and want. I am glad to hear how much you loved your aunt and that will never change. Often when we lose someone we love we look to our family members and close friends. What we expect when this happens is for our family to support us but they themselves maybe grieving in their own ways and it can be very surprising to us to find out that they may not be able to give us what we need at that time. Please know that it may not mean they don't care. Some internalizes the pain, some need people around. In the meantime where do you get comfort? Notice what comfort these two bible verses say about comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God.

First it praises Jesus Christ's Father God, why? Notice that it is because of his tender mercies, In what way had the bible writer experienced God's tender mercies, when you read the verse further, he shows it was in the tribulation that he suffered, what were some of the things the bible writer suffered? 2 Corinthians 11 and starting in the latter part of 23 through verses 27 he starts the description in blows to an excess, in near-deaths often. 24 By Jews I five times received forty strokes less one, 25 three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I experienced shipwreck, a night and a day I have spent in the deep; 26 in journeys often, in dangers from rivers, in dangers from highwaymen, in dangers from [my own] race, in dangers from the nations, in dangers in the city, in dangers in the wilderness, in dangers at sea, in dangers among false brothers, 27 in labor and toil, in sleepless nights often, in hunger and thirst, in abstinence from food many times, in cold and nakedness.

So Jennifer it stands to reason that Paul needed comfort and he needed God's tender mercies. When you read 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 Paul got the mercy and the comfort that he needed, he knew that it was from God and he also knew that others would experience tribulation, although each has their own tribulation the comfort comes from the same source and all can be comforted but in turn when we receive that comfort, the scriptures says that we comfort others in any sort of tribulation. Did you notice Jennifer, in any sort of tribulation? So no matter what we experience even death of a loved one God can give you the comfort you need. It's amazing how much comfort you can get from the scriptures and to know that God wants you to be comforted, means everything. Jennifer, I will be keeping you in my prayers and I will be in touch to check in with you to see how you are faring. Many people say that they are keeping someone in their prayers but what does it really mean? Again, notice what the bible says at James 5:16

16Therefore openly confess YOUR sins to one another and pray for one another, that YOU may get healed. A righteous man’s supplication, when it is at work, has much force.

We are told to pray for one another and you better believe God is listening when we pray for others, just as it says it has much force.

With much hope,

Freda
