The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. – Job 1:21

Dear! Never overcome the pain, sorrow and deep marks that the death of a loved one leaves us our hearts. The most that we can do to relieve such pain and suffering is to have the consolation of the Holy Spirit of God.

Only by the grace of God and his Holy Spirit can receive courage and strength to continue to live even in the midst of so much pain, sorrow, suffering and longing.

We must always keep in mind our condition as pilgrims. We are travelers here on earth. In short we are tourists and we are heading toward our true home next to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Pilgrim am in a foreign land. – Exodus 12:19

Just as travelers are those who live with us are too. When one part before we should not indulge in deep sorrow for the dead rest and feel nothing. They sleep and are waiting for the day of the Lord's resurrection. The same thing will happen to us. We also sleep.

13 We do not, brethren, have you ignorant concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not as others who have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in God through Jesus, will bring with him.
15 I say unto you, then it is the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the sound of God's trumpet, and the dead in Christ shall rise first.
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
1 Thessalonians 4:13 to 18

The dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. – Ecclesiastes 9: 5

Verily, verily I say unto you, the hour cometh, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. – John 5:25

I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? Now it is not God of the dead but of the living. – Matthew 22:32

Now it is not God of the dead but of the living; for to him all are alive. – Luke 20:38

For to this end Christ died and lived again, it might be Lord both of the dead and the living. – Romans 14: 9

And many of them that sleep in the dust shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. – Daniel 12: 2

But someone will say, How are the dead raised? and with what body do they come?
36 fool! what you sow is not quickened, except he first die.
37 And what you sow, you do not sow the body that will be, but a bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain.
38 But God gives it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. – 1 Corinthians 15:35 38


In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. – 1 Corinthians 15:52

And if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead Jesus also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. – Romans 8:11

Ones do not let shoot down the deep sadness and depression or the trust in our Mighty God. Only God can comfort the hearts of men. And we must not forget ever.

The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. – Job 1:21
