The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life;" So this promise from Jesus gives the hope of seeing our loved ones again.

  2. Dear obakesan So sorry to hear about your loss, she was a beautiful woman, and that is a lovely picture. Today as you noted there isn't many resources for grieving with loss. I have found the hope in the bible as a way to deal with, understand death, and the grieving process. It has a logical approach to death, the reason why it happens, and the solution to it. Please take the time to examine the attached link. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/watchtower-no3-2016-may/#?insight[search_id]=94b58d88-0ace-48e5-945c-1d5e181dc837&insight[search_result_index]=1 Condolences
  3. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I have a beautiful daughter that I couldn't bear to lose...death may seem to be so permanent, and you mentioned that you are looking for some connection with others, who may have experienced the same type of loss. I would like to give you a link that you will find very upbuilding, and will provide hope, at this time of hopelessness. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/watchtower-no3-2016-may/ Many condolences
  4. Mariesgirl... I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother..death is the greatest enemy of mankind. I lost my mother, my closest friend, and it was devastating. A scripture that helped me to cope, and refocus was a promise that Jesus made at John 5:28,29 which reads "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29: and come out! It brings comfort to know that death is not the end of life, and our loved one's are asleep. Eccl 9: 5 says "For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing at all." So Jesus promised that he would awaken those asleep in death. Can this really happen? Wouldn't we all like to be reunited with the ones that we love? If you would like to know how you can benefit from this promise, and how it can help you cope with the death of your loved one, please click the following link https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/know-truth-tract/know-the-truth/
  5. To the family of MommaSouss Our greatest enemy death has touched your family, and I would like to extend my deepest condolences on the loss of your loved one. Your loss as a mother is something that I cannot begin to comprehend. I am participating in a volunteer work reaching out to loved ones suffering thru this experience, and sharing a promise that brings hope at this time of hopelessness. The promise is at John 11:25 "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life;" This is a promise that gives us hope!! The Bible promises that in the future, such pain, and grief that you are feeling now will be no more. Rev 21 :3,4 reads 3: With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” But can this really take place? The link to the tract below gives bible based hope, and proof that this will take place. May you find peace, and comfort at this most difficult time. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/
  6. I am so sorry to read about your loss, and the heartache that you are enduring. Death is our greatest enemy, and with the pain we feel..comes despair, and sadness. As mentioned grief and sorrow transitions to becoming more bearable, but the emptiness never leaves us. An effective tool that helps us to recover from grief is to strengthen our spirituality. With a strong spiritual base we can at times lose hope, but never fall into the pit of hopelessness. We can gain strength and hope by reading the promise that Jesus made at John 5:28,29 which reads 28 :Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice...and come out! This gives you the hope that you may one day see your loved one again. James 1:13 Reads "When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone." A God of love would never do something to make us suffer. So it isn't God's will when a loved one dies. So why does man grow old, and die? Why is there so much suffering and death? Why did God allow your dad to die? Is there hope for dead loved ones? Why do bad things happen to good people? For the answer to that, and many other bible based answers to questions you may have I invite to you to click on the following link... https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/know-truth-tract/know-the-truth/#?insight[search_id]=f5059eb9-9dab-49e9-9265-e382f53dd067&insight[search_result_index]=0 May you find comfort

  8. I am so sorry to read about your loss, and the heartache that you are enduring. Death is our greatest enemy, and with the pain we feel..comes despair, and sadness. As mentioned on the previous post..grief and sorrow transitions to becoming more bearable, but the emptiness never leaves us. An effective tool that helps us to recover from grief is to strengthen our spirituality. With a strong spiritual base we can at times lose hope, but never fall into the pit of hopelessness. We can gain needed strength and hope by reading the promise that Jesus made at John 5:28,29 which reads 28 :Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice...and come out! This gives you the hope that you may one day see your loved one again. Also James 1:13 Reads "When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.” For with evil things God cannot be tried, nor does he himself try anyone." This scripture reveals that a God of love would never do something to make us suffer, so it's not God's will that we lose loved ones to death. So why does man grow old, and die? Why is there so much suffering and death? Why did God allow your brother to die? Is there hope for dead loved ones?

  9. MyJules advice is very appropriate.. Focusing on the here and now, and what you are able to control can alleviate much stress... Attached is a link to a article that speaks about the challenges of having a loved one who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. May it help you to have peace http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2008330?q=terminally+ill&p=par
  10. First of all, My condolences to you and your family. I know you are hurting, losing a dear one to our great enemy death is devastating. And to not have the opportunity to say your farewells is troubling. We all have varying degrees of regret when we think back on those who have died. At times like this a personal relationship with God can help us to cope with feelings of despair. We may wonder can this really help? Read Psalm 56:8 "You keep track of my wandering. Do collect my tears in your skin. bottle. Are they not recorded in your book?" So God does care about your tears of sadness, thoughts of deep regret, guilt and hopelessness. And you can turn to him for comfort, the bible speaks of the "peace of God that excels all thought" at Phil 4:6,7. But have you ever wondered if God exist "Why does he allow suffering", "Is it his will that we grow old, or get sick, and die".."Where are our loved ones." Please click on the following link, for this and many more bible based answers that provide real hope, and comfort. http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/know-the-truth/1102008390/
  11. This message is to convey my deepest sympathy for you, and your family at this time of great grief. The lost of a family member, and especially a parent is a traumatic event, that shakes us to the core. I am participating in a volunteer work, and reaching out to loved ones who are suffering thru this lost, and providing an upbuilding bible message of hope.A scripture that brings comfort, is found at Rev 21:3,4 which reads " The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4: And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Since death is all around us today, so we can appreciate that this is a future hope, and promise. But can this really take place? Is it really possible, that in the future your mom, and many others will be brought back to life?? Is this a mere fantasy? Note what verse 5 reads "Also he says: “Write, for these words are faithful* and true."If you would like to hear more good news about the future, please inquire of Jehovah's Witnesses the next time they visit, or visit our website www.jw.org where you will find many more encouraging bible truths, that can ease your pain, and grief and provide a solid hope for the future.http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/ My condolences.
  12. So sorry to hear about your loss, and the circumstances with the family. People say and do things that can really hurt each other, and with your brother's medical condition, he probably did that. But due to his issues, it should be realized that those things could happen, and perhaps was out of his control. The bible prophesied that in "the last days there will be critical times hard to deal with, people will be lovers of themselves, not open to any agreement." (2 Tim 3:1-5) So these times will be marked by dissension, and disagreements, even within the family ranks. But the bible also promises at Rev 21:3,4 a bright future under God's New kingdom, where "Death, mourning not outcry will no longer occur, the former things will have passed away." Can this really happen? Would you like to know more about the bright future that the bible promises?

  13. Please accept my condolence to you and your family. The greatest loss in our life is a loved one's death. As you grieve, May this promise from Jesus give you comfort, and hope. John 11:25 reads "Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life;" So this promise from Jesus gives the hope of seeing our loved ones again.How can this happen..is this realistic? Many believe that the dead are either in heaven after death, or suffering in hell. Is that what the bible teaches? The following link discusses the intriguing subject "where are the dead" May it bring you comfort,and peace of mind https://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/bible-teach/where-are-the-dead/ For more encouraging hope for the future, please visit www.jw.org

  15. I am so sorry to read about your loss, and the heartache that you are enduring. Death is our greatest enemy, and with the pain we feel..comes despair, and sadness. As individuals we grieve in many different ways, and past influences can make it difficult for us to be able to communicate when we are in pain. This can cause problems in our relationships. If you were to communicate your fears, and feelings with your husband, in laws...they may be able to give you at times the reassurance that you need. Another effective tool that helps us to recover from grief is to strengthen our spirituality. With a strong spiritual base we can at times lose hope, but never fall into the pit of hopelessness. We can gain strength and hope by reading the promise that Jesus made at John 5:28,29 which reads 28 :Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice...and come out!

A God of love would never do something to make us suffer. So why does man grow old, and die? Why is there so much suffering and death? Why did God allow your mom to die?
