bears all things,
Corinthians 13: 7-8
Whether you turn to the right or to
your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying
"This is the way; walk in it."
Truly, truly, I say to you,
you will see heaven opened
and the angels of God
ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.
are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.”
Behold, I send an Angel before thee,
to keep thee in the way, and to bring
thee into the place which I have prepared
For he shall give his Angels charge over
to keep thee in all thy ways
And God shall wipe away
all tears from their eyes;
and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow or crying,
neither shall there be any more pain:
For the former things are passed away
forgetful to entertain strangers:
some have entertained angels unawares.
everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.
It is the
lot of man to grieve over the
loss of loved ones.
For the Christian, the hope we have in Jesus carries
us through any such time of sorrow or pain
1 Thessalonians 4:13
"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."
1 Corinthians 13:12
"God comforts us in all our
so we in turn may be able to comfort
those with the
with we are comforted by God."
"Now may the Lord of peace
himself give you peace
at all times
and in every way. The Lord be with all of you"
2 Thessalonians 3:16
in the sight of the LORD
Is the death of His godly ones."
to me, all you who are weary and burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn
from me, for I am gentle and humble in
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and
my burden is light."
we do not lose heart.....
For our light and momentary
achieving for us an eternal glory that
far outweighs them
all. So we fix our eyes not on
what is seen, but on what is unseen.
what is seen is temporary,
but what is unseen is eternal."
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart;
devout men are
taken away, and no one understands that
the righteous are taken away to
be spared from evil.
Those who walk uprightly enter into peace;
find rest as they lie in death."
"For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone."
