Hi.  This is my first post - just found my way to this site.  I’m a Bible following Christian but just feel sooooooo alone and lonely and hope to have a conv with or read some others’ posts on how to survive this thing.  Lost my husband 06-24-20. Tragic accident so very unexpected.

    I feel the same exact way. I am a Christian but I’m still having trouble. I feel like I’m suffering. I feel weak and tired. You are in my prayers because I know the pain you are going through.

You are in my prayers as well.  I don't like living in a world without my husband.  I feel lost and afraid most days..  I too am christian, I pray

to God to help me get thru this. But, honestly, I don't feel any comfort or sense of peace when I pray.. This is going to take a long time to process

that I am alone.  I lost the one person that I felt most connected with in this world, the one person who loved me no matter what.  43 Years married to this

kind, loving, patient man.  I am so lost without him.

I lost my dad exactly a month ago. I feel like God doesn’t hear my prayers anymore bc he passed away whilst fasting for his recovery. I don’t want to pray anymore. I don’t want anything to do with God anymore. I wish I could become an atheist but something in spirit keeps me coming back to God. I hate it.

I’m so sorry for you. When we lost our grandson I was mad at God for a year and wouldn’t read the Bible or listen to Christian music or anything at all.  Then one morning I opened the Bible and read Proverbs 25 verse 2.  It says, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter,” and I thought well I know God is GOOD and He is either real or not. The Bible is either TRUE or NOT. Can’t have it both ways. So it became a DAILY DECISION I had to choose to make, to trust Him.  I’m glad i did because He has seen me through soooooo much since then. That was 2005.  I’ll pray for you. I really will.

my Father died on May 2, 2018. I call that day MAYDAY, as in S.O.S.  Without him, i just don't know how i will recover. He was my only comfort in a cold and dark world. they say i should be over this grief by now. i have even experienced cold and vile people who have said, and i quote, "Get over it already". it seems like my grieving for Father aggravates them. but i cannot help it...i miss him. life is meaningless without him. thanks for listening...tln.

Seriously your comment is heart breaking.  I was with my husband 35 years. If I didn’t have a faith in God/Jesus I’d be dead. He is my constant companion.  He’s promised that. It’s my choice to believe or deny it. I choose to believe because I don’t want to get “stuck” in my grief or get so comfortable in my grief that it’s my husband;s death that defines my life or defines who I am.  It’s just what works for ME and keeps ME sane.

Dear PDizzle,

I'm sorry for your loss. The best Friend a bereaved person can have is our Creator, Jehovah God. Pour out your heart to him in prayer because “he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7) Moreover, he promises that all who do so will have their thoughts and feelings soothed by “the peace of God that surpasses all understanding.” (Philippians 4:6:7) Also, allow God to help you heal by means of his consoling Word, the Bible. Make a list of comforting scriptures. You may even want to memorize a few of them. Having such thoughts to ponder over may be especially helpful at night when you are alone and find it hard to sleep.— Isaiah 57:15  May you also be encouraged by reading, "When A Loved One Dies". https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&issue=2016-05&pub=wp16&srcid=share
