~ When dealing with a painful loss, we often ask ourselves questions like, 'What am I going to do with my life? How will I get through each day? What if I never stop crying? Why did God let this happen?' Such fears and thoughts are very real. The journey of healing is a long one that requires time, patience and loving support. God understands our pain. He is there to give us the courage and strength to move forward. Turning to the Bible as a source of wisdom can help you through this difficult time. Reading the Psalms helps us to understand the real struggles of people and how faith in God can lift them from their pain.
