Finding Comfort After Losing a Loved One In Christ!

Finding Comfort After Losing a Loved One In Christ!

The Lord tells us our life here on Earth is just a vapor. But the Life that follows this life is eternal, everlasting.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 James 4
14 You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.

I understand the pain of losing a loved one. It is so hard when you know you will not be able to see them and hug them, but as Children of God we know this is not the end.

We have the Lord’s word that gives us hope that we will be with our loved ones again.

1 Corinthians 15
16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised;
17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins.
18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied.
1 Thessalonians 4
Those Who Died in Christ
13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
    Nor have entered into the heart of man. The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

    1 John 3:2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.

    Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

    2 Corinthians 4:16-18 Do not lose heart, though our outer man is decaying, our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

    Revelation 21:4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”

    Life is but a stopping place,
    A pause in what’s to be,
    A resting place along the road,
    to sweet eternity.
    We all have different journeys,
    Different paths along the way,
    We all were meant to learn some things,
    but never meant to stay…
    Our destination is a place,
    Far greater than we know.
    For some the journey’s quicker,
    For some the journey’s slow.
    And when the journey finally ends,
    We’ll claim a great reward,
    And find an everlasting peace,
    Together with the lord

    “I’m Free”

    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free,

    I’m following paths God made for me

    I took his hand, I heard him call

    Then turned, and bid farewell to all

    I could not stay another day

    To laugh, to love, to sing, to play

    Tasks left undone must stay that way

    I found my peace … at close of play

    And if my parting left a void

    Then fill it with remembered joy

    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss

    Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

    Be not burdened… deep with sorrow

    I wish you sunshine of tomorrow

    My life’s been full I’ve savoured much

    Good friends, good times

    A loved one’s touch/

    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief

    Don’t lengthen it now with grief

    Lift up your heart and share with me,

    God wants me now … He set me free.
