Allow Yourself to Remember

Posted on May 3, 2011 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

Remembering happy memories or looking at photos may be painful at first but in time may help you to heal rather than bring pain.  Writing down pleasant memories in a journal or keeping a list of things you wish you could have said to your loved one when he or she was alive may help. Writing may also provide you with a healthy outlet for your emotions.  What about keeping mementos? Because everyone grieves…

Dealing with Guilt

Posted on May 2, 2011 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

Maybe you feel like something you did or some neglect on your part caused your loved one's death. Guilt, whether real or imagined, is a normal reaction to grief which can be helpful in itself.  Talking about how guilty you feel can provide a much needed release.  No matter how much we love a person we cannot prevent time and unforeseen occurrences from befalling ourselves or those we love.  Not getting one to a…

Accepting Help from Others

Posted on May 1, 2011 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

Accepting help from others can be particularly important when a spouse has died.  The tasks that they once completed may now be left unattended.  For instance, if they handled financial matters or chores around the house it may be difficult to handle all by yourself.  In such a case the advice of tactful friends can be of great assistance to you. The Bible describes at Proverbs 17:17 a true friend is one "born when there is distress."  So do not isolate…

Help for Those Who Grieve

Posted on April 30, 2011 at 8:17pm 0 Comments

As mentioned yesterday, not everyone grieves in the same way. With death we can be confronted with a number of emotions, including shock, numbness, sadness or perhaps even guilt. You may not experience all of these feelings and you may not display your sorrow the same way another does but know that when and if you do, it is not wrong for you to do so. So let yourself grieve.

Hope for our dead loved ones.

Jesus resurrected at least three persons, demonstrating that there is hope for the dead. In order for us to understand the hope for the dead, we must comprehend the cause and origin of death. Many of us ask why we get sick and die. The answer can be found in God's word, the bible at Romans 5:12 "That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men because they had all sinned." So sin is the cause of sickness and death but it doesn't just stop here.

So, what is the hope for the dead? Imagine this, the dead will come back to life with the prospect of living forever. Not a mere fantasy, Jesus said at John 5:28, 29: "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..." This hope is just one of the wonderful expressions of God's love. Would you like to learn more about this hope or the many wonderful expressions of God's love?
