I am heart sick to hear of such a tragedy. Lord, I cannot imagine the grief both of these families are facing in the loss of their precious children. Lord, comfort the families and may they draw close to You during this heart-wrenching time. Prayers for the Wright Family as they are currently grieving the loss of the head of the family due to Cancer. I am a widow; my beloved husband died of sudden cardiac arrest 2yrs and 2 mons ago.
I am a believer and trust Jesus Christ to lead me though this horrible time of sorrow. My husband was my only love, my best friend and a fine Christian man. He was 65 when he died. I miss being a wife; spending days with my husband and thinking of our past life. We were married for 43 yrs and I am so missing him. Thank you for the scriptures of comfort. I have read them from my bible many times but they are always a reminder that a great day is coming when we who believe will be in heaven with our loved ones.
I am so very sorry for your loss, Gwen. He will never leave us or forsake us. I pray that God will comfort you and strengthen you during this time. I lost my grandma on Monday. She passed away suffering stage 4 cancer! It was spreading fast throughout her body. She was tired! These scriptures are extremely helpful! Thank you!
I feel like a hippocrate telling you these since I cannot take these words to my own heart. I just lost my husband on December 28th It was sudden and unexpected. These verses have helped me a little. My husband always told me that in time I will find peace and be able to go back. Maybe this is my time.
But thank you very much for sharing these. Bobbi, I am so very sorry for your loss. May you find that peace and return to a church family who will love you through your loss. I am a youth director and our community is trying to re-coup after a tragic loss of a well-loved 17 year old. I am using your words today with my youth group to help them understand grief AND to know that His word is where we can find answers!
I read many comments here about terrible and so sad situations. But rather a spiritual death. I have become a much worse person than I was, depression is chasing me and I have been able to dodge it all. But for how long will that be the case? How much more pain will I allow myself to cause to others and myself? Pray for me my brothers. My soul is wheeping and crying. I need to find my way back into a state of absolute peace. Please my brothers pray for me. The Bible says a pray can move mountains. I love u all.
Matt from Brazil. I have heard as well as others. Remember God cares and loves you too Matt. My father passed this morning Christmas day. He had a stoke on Dec. He is now at rest. Good day all, 11 days ago my cousin took his own life. Thank you for the encouraging verses and may I please ask that you remember his family in your prayers.
Elise, my heart breaks for you and your family. Lord, you are the God of all comfort. Be with Elise and her entire family as they grieve the loss of her cousin. Lost my mom a year ago, uncle in july, and another uncle last Thursday, overwhelmed with death, Christmas is next week started feeling sad and missing my mom, searched 4 grief scriptures and found these, grief is such a journey.
Just lost my 23 year old brother in a bad accident while he was on his way to see my sister who is in ICU.. I look at these verses every single day. Such comfort, thank you. I just lost my mom to cancer 2 days ago. When I was driving home, it started snowing gently and I felt a comfort. The next day I checked the internet for grief scriptures and this site was the first site I came across, and what do you know, there is snow falling in the background.
Alex, I find it is often just the little, subtle things that impact us when we need encouragement the most. Praise God that you were comforted by this and know that He loves you! These verses are wonderful and indeed uplifting. His friend told me the news last Sunday and until now, my emotions are still raw and although there are so many questions, confusions and even painful emotions, I know that God has a reason for everything. The feeling of losing someone that became a part of you, is like losing a part of myself too. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for listing these wonderful passages. I will be sharing them with a lady in church whose family has lost a daughter in a car accident in Mexico. They are distraught and are asking for comfort and encouraging words of hope. Sorrow is a deep pain that can paralyze and overwhelm you, but as the Psalmist says, Sorrow lasts for the night, but joy comes in the morning, and our greatest joy will come in the dawn of the morning when we will be in the presence of the Lord with our loved ones that preceeded us.
Our hearts are so heavy with grief, please pray for this family and his group of friends that have so many questions. My prayer for everyone is that through our experiences God uses us to help others. One thing I found out, is when we encourage others, he encourages us. My mother transitioned to heaven through a car accident 3 years ago. I say transitioned because there are no accidents when you are a Christian. I began to ask God, why did she have to go that way? But, looking deeper there are people involved, people that needed God.
People I would have never met had this not happened. God always has a bigger plan. Just ask him what it is. Look at the people around us, ourselves included, everyday. For some reason I began to pray for the young man that hit my moms car. I prayed for his salvation. Over and over again. Claiming it, thanking God for it. Six months later, Christmas eve I received a phone call that this young man, who had everything in the world going for him, committed suicide. My spirit was crushed, and for days I felt defeated by Satan. Like he was laughing at me, that this was all for nothing.
In the quietness of my spirit, I heard the Lord speak to me and he said, I am who I am, and My ways are not your ways. I began to repent, because I had assumed this young man was lost forever. I was always under the assumption that someone who did that was lost. I believe in my heart now, that this young man was going to take his life that very day, but instead he hit a little green car, and was instrumental in transitioning my mother to heaven. Now you may say, this is all nice and it makes you feel better, but you have no proof that this is what really happened.
Some things you just know in your heart. Look at the bigger picture, my grieving friend, and it will help you. Ask God to grow you, and place someone on your heart to pray for and I guarantee he will do it. Thanks Lisa for these words of grace and peace. My mother also was killed in a car accident last August 8th It is absolutely devastating and now coming up on the anniversary, I feel like it was last week.
My father is adding on additional ways of stress, refusing to see, his behavior effects other people, especially immediate family like myself. Even more unfair not to have said goodbye. Everyday a struggle. I hope I will soon. Lisa, thank you so much for this. I just lost my husband to suicide two days ago. He was only 28, in 25 and our son turned 3 on the tenth. I know he was saved, but I am still terrified for him. These verses and your perspective on suicide and salvation have been a huge comfort to me, I thank you so much, and my heart goes out to you, I know the pain you must be feeling.
To all of those grieving, my heart and prayers go out to you. God Bless and Keep you all until we meet one day at his side with our loved ones gone before us. Dear Maggie, I lost my son to suicide April 28, I was deeply touched by the pain discussed on this site. It is clear to me there is need for more open discussions on this topic. However, I felt prompted to write you though so much time has passed. It is important for both of us, and their children, to first recognize that they had said and meant the prayer of salvation. Romans My friend, this verse is not in the Bible by mistake.
God knows all our circumstances. Though their last act was a sin, the blood of Jesus covers this too! I realize Catholic teaching is different but God gave us His word so that we can meditate on it and use it in all our life circumstances. He has s plan for you and your child. Our job is to seek and He will help us find our purpose. For those who love and obey God, He will work all things for their good. Paraphrase from Romans Love, trust, and obey…for there is no other way…as the song goes! Love and blessings to all on their journey!
My sister emailed the link of this blog post to me. I just want to thank you so much for this blog post. I lost my father this past Tuesday and he will be laid to rest on Tomorrow afternoon. I love and miss him so much. While I was reading this post, I saw that you included Isaiah Sometimes I have my good moments, and sometimes I have my bad moments. But my family and friends have been excellent support systems, so I am getting through this, step by step.
Thanks again and God bless you. I lost my daughter at the age of 18 years in , intelligent , beautiful young woman of God of leukaemia. She was born and died in November. I still live with unbearable pain especially in November, her birthday was on Monday. Today I am sitting here and asking myself does anyone really care? I also came across this page that is full of encouraging verses, grieving is so personal but if you cast your burdens to God he will surely take you through. When you walk on through this Dark road you do not feel his presence and you do not see his foot steps because he has lifted you up and is carrying you through.
Trust in him and he will grant you peace and strength. May God bless this site… My big aunty in choir lost two of her kid within a period of 3years… Am imagining the pains she is going thru… These portion of the bible will really her recover…. E no easy…. God have mercy. I was reading these scriptures looking for comfort. I lost my nephew Phillip on August 28, to a scooter accident. Please pray for my family as we go through this difficult time. My life has changed , I read the bible as much as I can, Ive gone to church to receive the blessed sacraments more times in the last 4 months than I have in the past 15 years.
My life will never be the same but I know we are just pilgrims passing through this world. I will see Phillip again. With love Joe. I am so sorry to hear of your lost. I know your pain. I lost my 27 years old grandson who I raised since 6 weeks old , on September 27, to him taking his life. He left a wife, 6 years old daughter and 2 years old son. The grief and pain and not wanting to accept reality is overwhelming.
I am a believer and I do trust in my Lord but right now I am finding it difficult to pray or study my Bible, but I do. I have been told this is part of the healing process and that tho the pain of the lost never goes away.. And that to me means keeping my faith and remembering what Jesus did for me on the cross will give me the comfort and peace. May you and your children be bless with strength and peace. I am so very sorry to hear of your tragic loss. It is profoundly difficult to take care of small children, when you are coping with severe grief.
Also, you are grieving all of the future you and your husband would have had together. You have had a tremendous shock to your system. Know that there is no right or wrong way to grieve. It is different for each person. You may find therapy with an individual therapist, or a group setting for dealing with grief, helpful, to have a place to vent, not in front of your children, and to hear from others who are experiencing what you are experiencing.
Hospitals often have grief groups. Do you have relatives in your area? Ask them to babysit so you can have some alone time, maybe at a coffee shop, or wherever you enjoy being, to be able to have your own thoughts, and perhaps write them in a journal. It is okay to be mad at God, He understands. Ask for support from all those close to you. I am so very sorry for your loss, and I hope and pray you will find people in your town who can help you feel with the overwhelming feeling you are feeling. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, and no universal time table for the process.
I will pray for you and your children. Best Regards, Elizabeth. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your children. May the Lord our God bless you and your children abundantly. Stay strong dear Kay. I just lost my close s t cousin, and i am a believer of Christ, i know that all is possible to Him. I have recently lost my boyfriend almost 3 weeks ago, he was murdered along with half of his close family.

We do not know why God allows these things to happen but He is the Great Comforter and He is in control.
Lord, be with Pat during this time of loss. Comfort her and wrap Your arms around her and give her Your peace. Coming across your page and these scriptures has really been a blessing. I ask for prayers from anyone I know each and everyone of us here has pleaded for either ourselves or someone else I ask if you take a second out of your time to say a prayer in my families name I would profoundly appreciate it. Marlene, my heart grieves with you and your family.

We are having a birthday party tomorrow to celebrate a baby who died before he was born. The family is very close to us and my five year old son took it really hard, I think partly because he is so close to his own little sister and better realizes the enormity of their loss than he might otherwise. He has been struggling and it was really important to him that this baby should have a birthday party we gave his sister a family birthday party when she was born.
I needed this. I just miscarried last week. I had my tubes tied so I did not think I would be pregnant again. I seen the embryo in the toilet. I am trying to figure out what I need to help heal.

Please note this is a. The enemy of our soul according to the bible have come to steal, kill and destroy. I lost my father to suicide the same day I got my High School diploma, which was perhaps a bit of a bigger deal given I quit school in the 8th grade, never went to High School. However, when I turned 18, I met the Lord after Jesus physically healed my best friend since the 3rd grade and shortly after began working on completing high school at night while learning the Electrical Contrscting Trade during the day… I even began working on applications to Univetsities and was accepted to the actual one I really wanted to attend as the Lord opened the door.
Only I never told my father I was working on my high school degree at night because I was afraid to let him down if I failed… Nor did I tell him about my acceptance to college contingent on my high school degree. I received a letter in the mail on a Friday morning from the a High School telling me I passed High School and could pick up my Diploma anytime, The day I received that letter I showed my Christian boss, he said we were going to only work a half day Monday and then go get my diploma together.
I had my own apt and lived on my own back then but went to visit my father Friday night to set up a time on Monday eve that I could come see him and put the actual Diploma in his hands, I never told him Friday because I wanted it to be a big surprise that I had finally accomplished something he could be proud of. Only when I got out of the shower, it was my aunt and she said the police were at her house and needed to speak with me. They proceeded to tell me my father was dead and that I was next of kin and therefore would need to meet them to identify, sign papers and retrieve his belongings.
I was 18, totally freaked out, went from the highest day of my life to the lowest in a split second. My father unfortunately unbeknownst to me he hid it well shot and killed his girlfriend that was over 20 some years younger and then shot and killed himself so Not only did I tragically lose my father whom I loved dearly, but never got to put my High School Diploma in his hands nor tell him I was accepted and leaving for college in less that 4 weeks at that point.
What was supposed to be 1 of the best all time days of my life, turned out to be the worst! Took many years, much guidance, counsel, wisdom,scripture-and a lot of years to overcome…. In short, it will take 2 things, the Lord and all those that genuinely serve him and he has lead to be there for you thru this crises, and secondly — time, real healing time!!! Unfortunately I received a lot of bad advice, such as the Dean of men at my University Christian college- originally titled Bible college told me, my father was in hell and I just needed to get over it and move on….
That was back when I was young, dumb and impressionable and it took many years to work thru that terribly pathetic advice. Ok my friend, I pray the Lord strengthen you and fill you withHis living Word daily! If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us?
Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
