Comfort in Mourning

The Bible teaches unmistakably that we can triumph over bereavement. The Psalmist said, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” Self-pity can bring no enduring comfort. The fact is, it will only add to your misery. And unremitting grief will give you little consolation in itself, for grief begets grief. Sorrow, or mourning, when it is borne in a Christian way, contains a built-in comfort. “Happy are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted.” There is comfort in mourning, because we know that Christ is with us. He has said, “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Suffering is endurable if we do not have to bear it alone; and the more compassionate the Presence, the less acute the pain.

Prayer for the day

Thank You, loving heavenly Father, for the promise that when we mourn You will comfort us. I have felt the healing of Your consolation in the past and know You will never fail me.

    I lost my dear, precious husband two months ago. I loved this man with all my heart. He came into my life at a time I was so wounded and God used him to help me recover. We had incredible love; we served God wholeheartedly. I look up into the sky at night wondering where he is and what he is doing. I want to be with him. I am a strong person, but I miss him so much. I know God has a plan for me, but it hurts so much.

      God will never forsake you in your grief. Cry out to Him, speak from your heart, even to the anger and unfairness of death. He has big shoulders and understands ever emotion, every thought is clear to Him and He will heal your wounded soul. Embrace His resurrection and let Him give you a vision of your husband worshiping at His thrown. You are not alone, you are closer to God in your sorrow that you could ever know.
