Messages to Those Who Remain after A Loved Dies

Pictures 09 08 & 10 08-06.jpgDeath speaks to the living as we gather to celebrate a life which is temporarily cessated. The "good news" is that the dead in "Christ" shall be reunited in heaven one day with Jesus.






Ifind this hope most comforting. My sister suffered greatly with colon cancer and a life time of abuse/neglect. I was very sad when I came to the point of acceptance for God's will for my sister. God gave my sister relief/healing for her soul. She got to the point of acceptance and this gave me comfort before she drew her last breath here on earth. My sister wuld always say " I can't sing" and I would encourage her to try. When I think of her now, I can hear her singing with the voice of an angel. I can envision her smiling and saying, " death is not so bad, I don't have pain anymore and I can sing!" My sisters' death brought her relief and healing. Her death brought to me God's promise of salvation for her. She speaks to the living by her death, for she lives with Jesus now. Yes, I miss her, but only for a while. What messages have you identified from the death of your loved one?

You, Richrd's Mom, are loved by God, our Father in heaven and by God's only begotten son, Jesus Christ. Have you tried loving the Son of God. He loves you so much He died for you. You see, a Son, is waiting to be loved by you. Try loving Jesus Christ, more than you loved Richard. Richard belongs to God, as you and I. Jesus Christ, we can claim, belongs to each of us, individually and collectively. Think and pray about a new view of the cross, okay! Keep in touch. I can't wait to hear you are back with your family, living, loving your children and family. I know they will be so happy to have their Mom back and to know their Mom loves them, too. Don't neglect the children who remain. They love you and want you back. Go back to your children who remain. Then, all of you will be the healer of the grieved, which is all of you. Get together with your children and remember Richard's time on this side. I bet some healing will come out of a family gathering like that!

Thanks, Richard's Mom, for your post. You said "I believe in God." Did you know He is God of All Comfort? For now we see through a glass, darkly: but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth FAITH, HOPE, CHARITY, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (I Corinthians13:12-13).
I shall remember you in prayer, that God will comfort you in the separtion He choose, between your son and you. God is our creator! It is He who owns us, not we ourselves. We would be mindful to always return the people God entrust to our care to Him. Children are precious in the sight of the Lord. We must be faithful in our stewarship/care of their lives while God allows them to live with us, the parent. When God gets ready to take back what belongs to Him, why is that we, who remain, get angry at Him? Don't be overcome with grief, my friend, for you may work your way into a darness from which you might not recover. Go to God in prayer, seek His comfort and care. Seek to understand God's will/His way and not a oneself selfish will/way. God's will is always best and His way is never unrighteous. We all were created to give God first place in our lives and not another. God is a jealous God and will not share that place with none other, than His only begotten son, Jesus Christ. God's only son died for many. Have you ever wondered about God's grief. Jesus, a child, a man, a Savior, a King, a Lord, our High Priest, murdered, due to ignorance/fear/rebellion and selfishness.
You say you are not where I am "yet". You have the power of God within you to rise from the realm of grief/depression. It is up to you. When you choose to return to the business of living, I am confident, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ will help you and sustain your will to return to living a life that is pleasing to our Father, God. May the light of the Lord shine in your life and return you to your family and friends. May you be reconnected to your spiritual self, which God has given you. You have the power, remember that and Jesus is ready and able to help you make sense of it all. Be blessed, my sister!
