Bible Verses About Death: 20 Comforting Scriptures Quotes

by Pamela Rose Williams on June 14, 2011 · Print Print · Email Email

One of the most difficult things to deal with in life is the death of a loved one. Even for the Christian, death is a part of life. Unlike they that do not believe, the Christian has a blessed hope – that is the return of the Savior Jesus to catch up His Church and bring them to eternal life with Him and God the Father in Heaven. Here are some scripture quotes about death that I hope will comfort you .

As He Promised, He Will Do

John 14:1-4 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.”

Romans 8:16-17 The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

2 Corinthians 5:6-8 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,  who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

Bible Verses About DeathBecause of Calvary, We Live

2 Samuel 12:23 But now he is dead. Why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he will not return to me.” (King David speaking of his infant son who died)

John 11:23-26 Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.” Martha said to him, “I know that he will rise again in the resurrection on the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”

1 Corinthians 15:54-57 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.” “O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.

In His Time, He Will Do

1 Corinthians 15:20-23 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ.

Philippians 1:23-24 I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better. But to remain in the flesh is more necessary on your account.

1 Peter 1:3-5 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

1 John 3:1-2 See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.

Revelation 21:1-4 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Safe In His Arms, Now and Forever

Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,

Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.

John 10:27-29 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.” (Jesus speaking)

Romans 8:38-39 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 14:8 For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.

Revelation 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”

Christian Quotes About Death

“They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies.” ~ Williams Penn

 “When the time comes for you to die, you need not be afraid, because death cannot separate you from God’s love.” ~ Charles H. Spurgeon

 “It is better for me to die in behalf of Jesus Christ, than to reign over all the ends of the earth.” ~ Ignatius of Antioch

 “He whose head is in heaven need not fear to put his feet into the grave.” ~ Matthew Henry

“Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind.”  ~ C.S. Lewis

Evening in Jesus name. I have read some of the verses but not all. I have found them to be comforting indeed. Particularly the state Apostle Paul found himself in,where it appeared he was caught between 2 choices. My mom passed on Monday 6th August. I was with her 15 min before she passed on. I now believe God prepared me for this loss. I dont know how i would have handled my mom’s departure had i not born again on 21 July 2012. Thank you Lord Jesus for my salvation. My mom through her actions not empty talk, taught me how to love others.I am grateful to have had her. Thank you for her life Lord Jesus. My biggest consolation is that she had accepted Lord Jesus as her personal saviour. I saw how peaceful she was moments before her departure. She had run her race very well. She was so ready,no sign of pain. Its amazing how we dont trust God’s Word. He does what He says He will do. He leaves so much evidence in our lifes that He will be with us till the end of the earth,that He will be with us in our sorrows,that He will carry our heavy burden. I am a living testimony that His Word is truthful. I have found God to be the most reliable Being. I pray that God give me the strength to trust Him with my all,entirely,in Jesus name. Amen

My Mom passed on July 16th 2013 and I miss her so much.
I remember the day I got saved. I had planned to commit suicide. But God had a different plan. I was so depressed and felt so helpless that I just prayed for God to show me that He is real. On Oct 7th 2006 I found Salvation. I got baptised 3 weeks later and my mom was the proudest I have ever seen her. The blood of Jesus can fix anything.
I still have a hard time with her loss. May God bless us all.

Thank you very much for offering your comfort to people who are going through the loss of a loved one. You never understand the pain until you go through it yourself.

On 27 August 2012 I lost my best friend due to a bike accident. My family took her in 4 years ago and we were inseparable. We shared everything together, we spoke long hours each night and she was the only person who understood me. I could call her anytime, wake her anytime, hold her anytime and nothing was to much for her. She always went out of her way to make me happy. Never did I know that she would be taken away from me so soon.

I am finding comfort in God but I am struggling to come to terms with the fact that I will have her in her physical form again. I do sense her around me and she is sad that she had to leave me alone but often when I break down and feel that I can’t go on, I receive a very strong feeling of peace and happiness for her.

My family have also been very supportive, yet I am very insecure of losing someone else. This is the first loss that I’ve had to go through and its really painful to live with regrets, things I wished I had done, things i wished I had said, i wish i treated her better at times, I wished i wasn’t so hard on her BUT I do know that my family and i gave her all the unconditional love and support that she deserved, her short time on earth.

Thanks for reading and May God strengthen, repair and restore everyone who has gone through their life changing experience.

AMEN

Thank you for comforting verses.
We lost our brother on the 9th August and this was like a bomb as we never had death in my family we are 6 sisters and he was our only brother, sheym poor brother, I still remember him saying to me and my younger sister Shelleyin an ambulance at Jooste hospital “say sorry to mama and Tata, they told me to stop smoking” I pray that he had made peace with our Lord as well. This was so painful, crying every night and don’t want anyone to see. The good thing is yes I have lost a brother but I have accepted God as my savior and I am christian again. Please God give me strength to praise your name and I need prayers. Thank you to Seventh Adventist people to accept me and my sisters, what a warm Welcome on Sabath day of 1 September. My parents are so happy about this and we no longer talk about our brother’s loss but only praising God. In life everything happens for a reason.

Thank you for sharing Lulama. It’s not easy in times like these. But yes definetly praise God for He uses everything for the good of those who love Him. I am very glad to hear that you’re recommitted to Jesus our Lord and Saviour. He has held onto you indeed, to you and your family. Keep remembering Him. And may you see you and your family be united to your love ones again, whether in this life or the next. God bless.

Thank you Linda. I am so sorry for your loss. We have an article especially just for you called “How to Pray with the Dying” at:

http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-pray-with-the-dying-5-helpful-tips/

I urge you to pray over her, get others to join you, and I will also pray with you for ultimately, salvation is of the Lord and only He can change the human heart (Prov 21:1). I so admire your passion to save your mother in these last days. May God grant you this wonderful desire. I pray that she may be saved. Another thing is that she might actually hear you & understand but not be able to acknowledge her receiving of this salvation. Keep on praying as we will too.

Linda September 9, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Thank you! My teenage son read a passage from the bible; Psalm 18. We just opened the bible and looked for something to read to her. I will look at the link you sent above. I’d think the Grace of God was working through both of them last night. Since I am a new Christian, my level of anointing may not be too deep at this point. So, I really appreciate the help.

Reply

Jack Wellman September 9, 2012 at 7:00 pm

I am glad to help in some way Linda. Let me say that your mother has a blessed daughter for I see that you care so much. Nothing is too hard for the Lord and many have came to saving faith in the last few days or hours of their lives. I had one experience with our Elder’s father-in-law and I share the faith with Him and he was so weak that he was only able to shake his head, so maybe using questions like: Do you believe that Jesus died for you? Do you know that if you trust in Jesus to save you He will? Do you believe that Jesus lived a sinless life in our place to die for us who are not sinless? Questions like these can allow them to say yes or no in their minds, even if they can’t shake their heads to acknowledge the answers. Does this make sense? You have nothing to lose trying it…and everything to gain by do so. I will pray these questions will penetrate beyond the diseased mind of your mother in her last days Linda.

Pamela Rose Williams September 9, 2012 at 7:11 pm

Hello Linda, I want to echo what Pastor Jack has said. You and your family are in my prayers. Regarding your level of anointing? Know that your prayers and all Scriptures that you read out loud are just as powerful as a believer who was saved 40 years ago. Read the book (gospel) of John to your Mom. This is the best book to begin a relationship with Jesus and through it all you will grow in your relationship with Him too. I am so glad to call you my sister in Christ.

Paul DeSantis November 28, 2012 at 11:45 am

Linda,

Sit with your mother. Pray for God to expel all evil spirits that would try to stop your mother from hearing you and read scripture to your mom. I did this same thing with my grandmother 4 years ago and something incredibe happened that very moment. Trust God and share the Gospel with your mom.

Paul

I too just lost my dad on September 13. You know that
everyone must leave this earth, but you are NEVER ready.
These past few years he had been reading the bible and then accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. My mom led him the way. I know where he is and that he is not suffering anymore, it is just the letting go that hurts so much.
I love the Lord, he is with me and my family. Sharing our experiences helps others facing loss. God bless you for having this site for us to read.

A Blessed Afternoon. :) these bible verses really are helping getting through the trial i’m facing today. At 17 years old, Losing my father just 2 days ago changed my whole world. I couldn’t really accept it. I didnt understand he was taken away from me. I was very much broken at this age some say i could be fragile but glory to God he helped me find this website and let me understand why. God has His purpose on why this happened and His purpose will help me see this through. To God be the Glory.

Enoch and Elijah never died. It is a widely held belief that they are the two witnesses that will return as in the book of Revelation in the End of days as THIS earth passes away and the new kingdom of Our Lord is established. It is my belief that we will be reunited with all who have passed in those days.

I don’t believe in god but I understand that the bible is just away we should live are life’s but a just can’t let myself believe that there is a god because I have lost a lot of people in my life. And no one has help me so how can there be a god.

Reply

Pamela Rose Williams November 13, 2012 at 9:22 pm

Hello Bernard, I am so sorry for all the people you have lost. I want you to know that I have also lost loved ones and before I knew Jesus as my Savior I had hopeless feelings just as you do. I learned that regardless of what happens to me, there must be an Almighty God because I can not believe that things just happen by chance. If you understand that the Bible gives us a “road map” of how we should live our lives, then you are so much closer than others that do not believe there is a God. God loves you and would love to hear you trust in what his only begotten Son, Jesus, did for you. He gave His own life as a sacrifice to bring you eternal life. Wouldn’t you love to have the hope of every believer … I repeat a verse that I shared in this article “But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.” (Philippians 3:20-21)

I am so glad you stopped by to leave your comment and please know that I am praying that you can know the peace and comfort that comes only from a relationship with Jesus.

And the way I have been taught in life was to never show anyone true love because you all ways get hurt so I show no tears for anyone no matter how close they have been to me is that a bad thing. ( I’m from Scotland just to let you know)

Reply

Pamela Rose Williams November 14, 2012 at 10:13 am

Hello again Bernard from Scotland, Love is something that many do not understand. Love is something that we should give regardless of how we are treated. I know it may seem impossible to do, but the Bible teaches that love is a selfless action that we are commanded to give. Jesus even taught that we should love our enemies: “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:44-46). So to answer your question … yes I believe it is a bad thing not to love. Be the one who loves first and see how it turns out. It is a step of faith, but you might be surprised at the result.

Pamela Rose Williams November 13, 2012 at 9:53 pm

Hi again Bernard, It is your choice to believe in the One true God or not. You can also believe in buddha if you like. Jack Wellman wrote a very good article that you might want to read. I believe there is only one way to attain eternal life and that way is Jesus the Christ. Here is Jack’s article: http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/what-sets-christianity-apart-from-all-other-religions/.

On December 24th 2012 my family lost a mother a wife a friend. She was 43. She had been battling all sorts of health issues after being diagnosed with breast cancer back in 2005. We have two sons together ages 20 &15 my older son has special needs. We were married for 16 yrs unfortunately we have been divorced for a few years now. We stayed close for our children and I helped her because she had become so ill and had noone else but the boys. Losing her this Christmas eve was unexpected and I was the one that found her. Her funeral was yesterday. Ww are having a hard time with all of this and now I feel very alone and scared. I am a christian have excepted christ but havent been close with my faith for awhile untill now. It feels so good to feel god working in my life. If you have any help that you can give me It would be greatly appreciated. I just want to help my boys and me to heal. God bless

Rusty December 30, 2012 at 9:22 pm

Hello David,
My heart goes out to you and your boys… and I am so sorry for your loss. God is definitely working as you are recognizing His presence. As you begin your healing process, look to the “Word” for your answers and begin to grow your faith and while you are doing that, be sure to include the boys in the process. They see you and your strength and your love for them just as you are seeing the love and strength in God… one of the things I would recommend is that you find a good church and surround yourself with God-loving people who will lift your spirits and welcome you in the family of Christ. Maybe you already have friends that are going to a church and are connected. Join a Bible study or Life Group. It really comes down to building relationships and connecting to people the way God intended. He doesn’t want us to be alone and you and your boys have so much to offer others and they you. Your testimony and caring for others as you do is an amazing way to help you heal and at the same time help others with similar pains and struggles. There is comfort and strength in the Lord. There are so many resources available for encouragement and the best and without fail are found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ… Here are some verses on Hope that may give you comfort. http://www.scripturenow.com/scripturenow/UserFiles/File/Hope.pdf
I pray for God’s speed on your healing and an incredible journey in faith.
God Bless you!!

Hello. I just want to thank you so much for posting these. It’s nice to have a list of these comforting verses all together, instead of trying to find them all in the Bible. My Grandma died on January 2nd, 2013. She had open heart surgery on December 26th, and never woke up, due to multiple strokes in every area of her brain. We were very close, when I was younger, but as I got older, I became “too cool” to care about her. I realized my error in early December, but we live in separate states, and I was unable to say goodbye. We saw her in the hospital, but she was not awake. I really just want a sign that she could hear me, and that I really did get to say goodbye, and I’m sorry. She was the most Christ-like lady I’ve ever known, and it seems like many of these verses were meant for me, in the way that only the Bible can do. Thank you again.

My daughter died from an overdose on Dec. 30, 2012. She was 40 yrs. old. It hasn’t yet been determined if it was accidental or suicide – it doesn’t matter – she’s dead. She had just recently had her 2 youngest children removed by CPS. I didn’t know about this until the prosecutor told me about her death. She had a tendency to get into ‘messes’ and have no contact with anyone until she would get out of the mess. Then she would have these ‘stories’ about how she was treated unjustly and ‘fixed’ it. Doesn’t matter. She was a dynamic person and now she isn’t. She was my youngest daughter and she had 4 sons and 2 grandchildren. We are scattered all over. I am a Christian. My spiritual family has been praying for me and I have felt as though a warm soft blanket has been wrapped around me since this happened. I need to go back to work and when I go out, I feel so alone – sometimes I get so sad I can’t take a breath when I’m outside my home. I don’t even know what I need now. I ask Jesus to keep holding me and giving me strength to keep going forward. My daughter believed in God when it was necessary – when she felt like she had no other options she would pray. I really don’t know what her spiritual life was like when she died or if she had one. I prayed for her constantly to be covered – I don’t know where she is – my spiritual friends have encouraged me to trust God – she is in His hands now – anything I could have done is done. I could have done more – we always can. Just 6 yrs. ago I started attending a wonderful church and having this wonderful, holy relationship with my God. It is awesome to be His child. I have so much going on inside of me – I’m staying focused on my relationship with God and His faithfulness and love for me, my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I have so much in my life – my recovery from alcoholism for 27 yrs. – 3 time cancer survivor – too much to record here. I know to whom I belong and who watches over me every second of my life – where my every breath comes from.

Hello, I thank you for the comforting verses, especially with regards to death. My wife Sherene and I lost our 7 year old son, Neville, to Leukemia, just 3 weeks back. We love the Lord, as a family, including our 9 year old elder son, Nathaniel. We were so reassured by the fact that this separation is momentary in the light of eternity as Neville has gone to be with the Lord. The verses captured here in one page, reinforces our Faith that we will see Neville again. We have put together a short testimony upon the passing away of Neville. If ok by you, I would be more than happy to email it to you, so that it can be a blessing for many. I wish to encourage you that your writings are of great comfort and strength to people like us going through bereavement.

Oct 2011 We lost our only son, at the age of 30 I felt hurt pain anger towards the individuals that did nothing as taking him to the hospital instead chose to drive around with him for many hours, I asked God why? could he have not lived having three small children, I being Catholic needing to reasure my faith reading the bible verses has helped me in understanding not to hate,but pray for these individuals the grief has been so hard, I pray to God to give me strengh everyday. I do believe God will reunite us one day and I believe that has given me some peace, please keep us in your prayers

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to
tell someone!

As I read these verses and comments my mother is dying. We just brought her home to die with hospice care. I am questioning whether we did the right thing. She had end stage liver disease but I still feel unsure of the decision sometimes. I have to believe it is all in Gods hands but still feel awful. The verses here give me comfort for after shr is gone but I still feel unsure of my decisiin.

I don’t know of the situation with your mom, but knowing that she’s been suffering for a long time with liver disease, I believe you made the right decision. I wish it would have been the case for me and my mother. Because if she would have been suffering with a terminal illness like the one your mom had, I would have made the decision to end her suffering because I knew that’s what she would have wanted me to do. Unfortunately in my case my mother’s death was very sudden, unexpected, we were not prepared for her untimely death & I am still grieving our loss. It gives me great comfort knowing that I have family & friends praying for me & my family, that gives me strength to make it thru these days. Reading these scriptures helps me tremendously, I am so Blessed & thankful to God for helping me thru this troublesome time in my life right now. I will pray for you & your family, may God Bless!! Thank you, Mrs. Bartie

That is how I lost my dad. I had not seen him for a while as he lived out of state and I received a call from his wife that he had suffered a heart attack and was gone. It is very difficult losing a parent and we still miss both of them. I am sorry that you lost your mom but I know, just as I did for my mom and dad, that they are all in a better place. God bless you and your family and I will keep you and yours in my prayers.

I have lost many a loved one especially my Dad. He went through World War II when he more or less just left school.
He was a man of few words,and he never spoke about religion.
When I was able to go out and have a pint I went with him,and I know when Jesus said it`s good to be in the company of men to be quite true,because I have experienced it,and it`s wonderful. When he died I felt something leave him. He never went to church nor did he read the bible. I would be heartbroken if he went to hell. My Mother, I did not love her,but she did everything she could to get things for us.
My Mother was brought up a catholic she was a wonderful woman always there for us,but I can`t understand why I say I did not love her. This has left me very confused about this,and I don`t know the answer ?

Three months ago my parents were in a car accident. Their car flipped 8 times. My mom was thrown from the car and didn’t make it. My dad was life lighted from the accident scene and was in a coma for three weeks. The doctors didn’t think e would make it, let alone ever walk or talk agin. He is home now and starting to use his walker less and less. We are aging my mom’s service this Saturday. I’m trying to figure out what scriptures express how I feel. I’m mad, angry, hurt, lost without my mom. But I know God is not to blame, He has a plan. Doesn’t make it easier though.

My mother passed away Sunday. Three days ago. Numbness first, confusion, crying, sadness, happiness, guilt, quietness now. I miss her so much already and pray with each new day, the mourning will be less and less. My Mother believed in God, and I feel she is in heaven now with my father and all those love ones before her. Reading verses from the Bible and this site are helping my grief process. I believe I will see my Mother again. My Mother also believed this.. Please keep me and my brothers and sisters in your prayers.

About 2 years ago our 1st great grandaughter (2) was in the carseat in her mommy’s car.A drugged and drunk driver hit them,killing our maraya.This was and is heart breaking. A few months later,my mom died,i still moarn her in my heart. my aunt and my cousin are battling stage 4 cancer as well as other family members. my youngest son is in prison for6 years for drugs. he has 2 beautiful girls . life has so many struggles,like death,money trouble,etc. My other aunt has cancer as well asher daughters husband. we also have another cousin with cancer. My son(middle) died in 1982 at age 10 with cancer. both of my grandparents died with cancer as well as others in our family. I grieve and then pray for God to heal ,to give us comfort etc.,. mostly i pray that all will come to Jesus that they may not die in vain. with faith in their hearts and the hope of Jesus Christ that they will be saved. without God,what hope do you have ?God has seen me through andhopefully when my time comes,and it will; my family i leave behind will look to Jesus for their salvation,comfort,and hope to be with God someday.

Thank you so much for sharing Janice! As I struggle with what seems like everything in life lately I looked to the internet for some guidance. I found this wonderful site and as everything happens for a reason, I scrolled half way down the page and came across your post you shared. Thank you so much for helping me sort through some of my feelings ~ now when I grieve I will pray for God to heal, give comfort, and that all will come to Jesus with faith in their hearts, and through Jesus Christ they will be saved so they will not die in vain.

Thank again!

God bless you and your family!

p.s. ~ One day I will share some of my story but I really wanted to focus on your incredible words you shared! You never know who you will touch and I’m so grateful as I really needed to read your post today!

Great scriptures! I just lost my brother on Sept 17th. He is the last of my immediate family. I lost my other brother, sister, mom, dad and now my last brother and I’m only 38. Crazy. One thing I’d like to say is that I didnt know the Lord when my other family members passed and I had some very rough times. Shouldering the grief is something we as mere humans are not cut out for. My wife and I have been significantly changed by the Lord in the past 5 years and are heavily involved in our church and I am so very thankful that not only was I called, but I was chosen. During the passing of my brother last week, I spent some very intimate time with the Lord and He took the burden from me. Am I hurt, of course, but I know fora fact my brother is in a better place because I helped him with the sinners prayer a few years ago that changed his life. God is so good and He knows our needs and He will meet them. It’s called FAITH, we have to believe in that He will help us. Just remember, we couldn’t love our loved ones if He didn’t love us first. Praise God and keep all of your heads high :)

I lost my wife on 8 August 2013. She was 39 years old. She was not sick. She fell down the steps at our house and died from a traumatic brain injury. She was saved and I know she will rise on the day the lord calls up the dead to heaven. I also am a servant of the lord although I am the least of his servants. I miss my wife so much and so do our 3 daughters. I am not going to lie I am struggling with this loss as anyone would. However today I realized that I should count every thing as a blessing. So lord thank you for everything you have blessed me with and every trial you have given me in life. I know I may not understand but I trust in you father to know everything that my soul needs to make me a better servant for you. I love you lord and I pray you will heal my broken heart

I am sitting next to my father’s hospital bed tonight. Thank you for these verses. If he wakes up I will have verses to share with him. I was so shock up when I arrived I could only remember to tell him absent from the body is present with the Lord. Now I will have specific verses to comfort him as he leaves his earthly body to be with the Lord. He is sleeping peacefully right now. Thank you.
