Bible Verses for Those Who Have Lost a Loved One

Updated on February 8, 2017

For Those Who Have Lost a Loved One

The loss of a loved one is already devastating for anyone. When the loss is unexpected, the pain is beyond words. I know this because three years ago, my 19-year-old daughter passed away after an auto accident. My world came crashing down and I was engulfed in a wrenching pain that can only be known by another parent who has lost a child.

In the future, I hope to write more about my daughter and what God has taught me and is still teaching me, about the comfort He has given me, and the peace that is unexplainable. At this point, I can only write on the surface and without detail, but I want to share some Bible verses that have been and continue to be an encouragement for me in hopes that some other grieving mom may be looking for the same comfort and assurance that I searched for in the months following my daughter's accident. I hope these help you as well.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.

Bible Verses for Those Who Have Lost a Loved One

  • Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return. They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness: Isaiah 51:11
  • The young women will dance for joy, and the men --old and young--will join in the celebration. I will turn their mourning into joy. I will comfort them and exchange their sorrow for rejoicing: Jeremiah 31:13
  • Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father's home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going: John 14: 1-4
  • I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid: John 14:27
  • Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began: John 17:24
  • Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love? Does it mean he longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? . . . No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below. Indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord: Romans 8:35 - 39
  • No eye has seen no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him: 1 Corinthians 2:9b
  • And God will raise us from the dead by his power, just as he raised our Lord from the dead: 1 Corinthians 6:14
  • Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. And do everything with love: 1 Corinthians 16:13
  • All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort: 2 Corinthians 1:3
  • Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies: 2 Corinthians 4:10
  • For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands: 2 Corinthians 5:1
  • For we will put on heavenly bodies, we will not be spirits without bodies: 2 Corinthians 5:3
  • We would rather be away from these earthly bodies, for then we will be at home with the Lord: 2 Corinthians 5:8b
  • Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus: Philippians 4: 6-7
  • And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died: 1 Thessalonians 4:13 - 14
  • So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold -- though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world: 1 Peter 1: 6-7
  • Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see: Hebrews 11:1

For Those Who Are Suffering

During the worst days following my daughter's accident, God surrounded me with people who had gone through what I was going through—both in person and online. In fact, some of the greatest comforts for me during that period came from strangers online who are now friends. If you are struggling now, please feel free to contact me. I don't even begin to have answers, but I understand the pain and I will walk beside you and share your grief.

If you are the friend of someone who has lost a loved, please read my article on how to comfort a friend.

Grace for Grief: Daily Comfort for Those Who Mourn
Grace for Grief: Daily Comfort for Those Who Mourn

This book was sent to me by a stranger. I believe it helped me more than anything else aside from reading the Bible.

      I pray for all of you in your time of grief. Last week, my 44 yr old cousin lost her battle with breast cancer and my 25 yr old cousin was killed in a motorcycle accident. I was able to accept the loss because of my faith and knowing that God has called them home to rest eternally with him. I thank God for the time that i had with them. I lost my first born child in 2012 and did not handle the loss well. I now thank God for strength, peace and understanding of his word.

      Two years ago I lost my husband who was 58. I struggle every single day. Every day I cry. I have no one to talk to as he was my best friend. The pain is the same as it was that day. I search for answers. His sister and my son feel his presence. I feel nothing but pain. I don't know what to do.

      I pray for each and every person who has responded to my article. Father God, please shower comfort on each person and family represented here. If any of them don't know you I pray that you would put someone in their path that can lead them to you. I thank you for the time we all had with our loved one who has departed. I pray that we will all be strengthened by your love and that you will help us to be a comfort to others as they walk the painful, unimaginable path of losing a child, husband, wife, nephew, brother, sister..... I thank you for giving your Son as a sacrifice for us so that we may be with you in Heaven and have the hope and comfort of knowing that through your Son we may see our loved ones in Heaven one day. I ask this in Jesus precious name. Amen

      I have lost my husband from a horrible motorcycle accident in december 19th 2013, he was only 38 year old, he was a father of two boys and a stepfather to my two kids, we was married for three years now, he was my sunshine n moonlight of my life, i finially found the man of my dreams and now he is gone, i dnt know how to express how im feeling, i can say im hurt. Confuse, loss, out of mind, i never experience this in my life, i read the bible but dnt understand much of it. By reading some of these verse its make me understand how our lord works.. i pray for strength n to help me with our kids to comfort them because i dnt know how at times, my husband knew the bible off the back of his hand, he truly believe n had his faith, he was a loveable, kind, good heart person, always smiling and helping people. I miss him so much, we couldn't say our goodbye and that really hurts. What hurt is that he was coming out of work to come and see me at my job and he had his accident four blocks away from my job. I feel horrible that i wasn't next to him when he got transported to the hospital, my husband called his brother because he didn't want me to worry, he always protected me, now im alone.. i dnt know what to do, who i can talk to.. i need answers ..

      I lost my son on an Oct 8, 2008 , he was my eldest of 4, His Name was Demetrious Deon, G. His was the life of mankind. ( smile) he was great in school , a 5 th degree martial artist, a Christian from childhood , he always tried to fit in . And a time in his life when things were good it got a little shakey from teen age bad choices.. He was able to go through the process and be productive again almost meeting death earlier in his life by being accidentally shot while young boys playing with a pistol. Before he went in to surgery , he ask me his Mother please don't let me die! I was a young Mother scared but had faith and told him then you are not going to die! He survived and became who everyone knew as Meechie all over again! As time went on different trials of a young man going through the process of life he had a son Demetrious jr. And later a daughter Yaharia Marie. He later moved to Joliet Il. Became yet a productive citizen but yet met tragedy once again in the suburban area where he shared apartment with his Brother both working same company different shift , I can remember talking to his brother on the phone and I had ask how the both of them were doing he said fine! He also shared with me something had happen in the complex where they live it was taped off like a murder, had occurred something that didn't happen where they live, well sure enough the gangs were trying into the neighborhoods Meechie was out side on his morning off from work and they were being bullied by gun shots. He was killed. No family around I often wondered did he call my name? I know he still prayed for it just so happen prior to this a week earlier I said Meechie you better keep praying , he said Momma I always be praying !!!! My Meechie dead at 35 ... My big Baby the family often said!!! Sometimes it feel as though its a dream?? His children are Beautiful, he has a grandchild, Granddaughter now , Son graduated from High School. His Dad misses him all his family misses him.. I still cradle my son, I'm missing him so much right now.. I'm reminiscing through my emotions and tears... I'm someone who might look strong and full of wisdom concerning life and death! But I'm weak and human! God prepared me in my latter years for it was already predestined 'Demetrius Deon sr Gr/Boyd we all Love and Miss you Dearly keep smiling and taking care of the gates in heaven we will all see you again one day ! Forever in my Heart love your Mom.... Oct 7,2013

      Hello my name is Kim and I lost my eldest child on 28 Oct 2012 to suicide. Shaun was 27 and in such pain after a break up with his girlfriend 3 years prior. She was pregnant and said she had wanted to marry him. Not much later she took his dog, who was his best friend, and moved to another state. She also had an abortion and left my son in ruins. He tried so hard to be happy and took up many activities to keep his mind from thinking about her. He finally could no longer hang on. I have such a broken heart and take much confort in knowing my Father in heaven is with me. I could not sustain without him. Thank you all for sharing your stories and bible verses. It helps to know there are people that love and not hate. People that believe nd have faith. Please pray for all those people that need hope and be that someone that says a kind word. I know one day I will see my son and I will always look to God to give me that strength until I can see him again.

I, still pray. Priscilla

      Thank you so much for posting these bible verses. I'm in, what I guess you would say, the opposite position of you. I just lost my Mom of 65 years old. I am 46 years old and I never thought I would have had to say goodbye to her so early in my life. Even though my Mom had been ill for several years, her death was sudden and unexpected. On a Wednesday morning she was fine, sitting up in bed and smiling, then by 11am that Wednseday morning we were at the E.R. and she was in critical condition and was intubated. By Friday evening my Dad, sister and I had to make the hardest decision of our lives....taking her off of Life Support and letting God do his work. We made the decision to take her off of Life Support on Saturday and 5;00 pm. We ended up taking her off at 5:05 pm and my Mom hung onto life until 2:04 am Sunday morning when God finally took her home to be with him in his Kingdom. As much as it hurts that she's gone, my family is at Peace knowing she is up in Heaven with our Lord Jesus Christ, and she is watching over us now. I am a very strong Southern Baptist Christian and I know my Mom is healthy, happy and running around, but I am still grieving so very much. I woke up this morning and saw a picture of her and just started crying and could not stop. So I started looking up scriptures in the Bible to help me with my grief. God is AWESOME and I know he is taking care of my Mom, but I just love her and miss her so much.

      Anyway, thank you for letting me post my comment. It does help talking about it. I talk about my Mom to my 4 year old son every single day so he does not forget about her.

      Anyway, God bless you and thanks again for your Bible verses, they do really help in the grieving process.

      This poem that I wrote helped me with my miscarriage.

      When I first learned

      of my pregnancy

      I burst with pride.

      But then there

      was a pain deep inside.

      The doctor informed me

      the pregnancy had ended.

      I felt my heart

      could never be mended.

      The passage of time

      has helped the subside,

      but time to time I

      shed a tear deep inside.

      This child lives

      my heart I

      must confide,

      deep inside.

      I lost my beloved dog after my birthday about a year ago, but I still haven't recovered-

      I'm still hurting and I can't seem to get myself together.

      I had known that dog since birth, I'm 15 now, I came upon this site while looking for a good scripture to put in a video for my dog, and I still have breakdowns every so often.

      A lot of these scriptures break my heart and make me cry, but only because they make me imagine what Heaven will be like.

      Sometimes we go through things and never understand. I went through something extremely hard for me that nobody could understand for months and I would pray and fast seeking God for answers and one day in church service a man was preaching and he speaking into my situation said you want an answer from God but were not always going to get a "word" to make it clear and everything all better, but he said God's peace is my answer, he said God wants to give me his peace and that God will not force his peace upon me that I have to take it. That I needed to rest in God and take his peace and I have been doing that and I can't explain what a wonderful feeling it is to know I can walk in complete and total trust in God and resting in his Peace :) I hope that we can all get to that point that we won't always get an answer as to why things happen and why we have to go through terrible things, but sometimes we go through hard times because God wants us to know he is GOD and he is the only thing we can rely on and not this world. When you are saved Acts 2:38 Repent, be baptized everyone of you in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST for remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. When you are saved and trusting in God your life is not going to get easier but God promises to always be there for us and when you have that assurance your soul is in Gods hands he gives you the pace that passes all understand. God Bless

      We have just lost my father's youngest brother, Dylan and it was such a surprise and unbelievable tragic loss. My family is destroyed right now and I can't even imagine how painful it is to lose a child. I am only 23 he was 20 years old. The first time I met him he was 14 and he was the sweetest and most crazy teenager yet I loved it! Oh Dylan I pray to God, you are by his side and that your soul rests in peace. I also pray to God for strength of all the love ones left behind... We will get through this...

      hey, your heart may be broken, you may not have had that love you've yearned for but God says in Zephaniah 3:17

      'For the Lord your God is living among you, He is a mughty savior,He will take delight in you with gladness,with His love he'll calm all your fears,He will rejoice over you with joyful songs'

      May be your mission out there will be to share love with those that have never experienced it, for you know how it feels like.I love you from this far end of Africa.Praying for you:)

      BrokenHeart 5 years ago

      All my life I have grown up thinking that my dad didn't love me or want me. He was never really in my life and never their when I needed him. We spoke on several occasions and I poured out my heart and soul as to how much I needed and wanted a relationship with him. He would tell me he wanted the same but never followed through. Through many years of trying to have a heart to heart with my grandma it always came down to one thing. That I was being silly for feeling like an outsider and not feeling wanted. You see my whole life it was always up to me to make any contact, and even then I was shut down and left empty.

      Now that my dad has died I found out that 3 years ago he was in a colma in the hospital that they put him in as he was almost dead and detoxing. I was never told or contacted by any part of my family. And it devastated me. The excuse was given that no one knew where I was, but yet I spoke to my grandma often leading up to this. And my mom has lived in and had the same phone number for 22 years. I am in my late 30's and have just been told that my dad has been on drugs my whole life and a couple years prior to being conceived. It was kept from me that he was on meth for most of my life. And now my world has been turned upside down. My sister tells me he loved me and wanted to fix so many things but sadly the lord took him. He fixed things with my sister but not me. I never new he was almost dead and in the hospital and due to life situations that lead up to his death it would have been the last chance for me to have closure and tell him how I have felt my whole life and possibly to hear him say I love you for the first time.

      I have grown up with no family other than my mom and stepdad. And I have mourned my whole life for not having connections with family.. wanting it and trying as best as a kid could. Expressing my feelings as an adult and being told that they are busy and have a life and I need to understand.

      Now that he is gone, I am trying to do the right thing to push and swallow everything I feel to stand up and be the big sister and do right by him. But it is so hard when family makes it known that you are an outsider, That you don't deserve to be their in this time of loss or to help plan and take care of the arrangements because I didn't seek him out like my sister did 3 years ago. When he came clean after almost dying. But how can you seek someone out when for your whole life many times and many years pass with no one knowing where they are and if they are alive.

      I am mourning his death, the loss of family, Yearning for that bond and relationship my whole life. Feeling that I wasn't loved or wanted and now wondering if I was and it was the drugs that kept him from me. Why does God put us through such a hard life with such horrible lessons and what am I to learn from this? I am so confused and hurt that I find myself not functioning like I should.

      Does anyone know of any versus in the bible that could help me put any or all of this into perspective? I don't hate my family I love them. Even when I was told the words I love you are fake because I don't know them, and that saying I love you is overdoing it.

      Came across this looking for a verse for my aunt who passed away yesterday. I started reading some of the other post. Some encourageing, some very sad, but very helpful in so many ways. My daughter was born sleeping 8 years ago on January 13 2004. She had A-Crania. She was full term. Even after 8 years it is still so hard for me to deal. I can relate to so many people. I couldn't imagine actually raising her then her passing. I have so much love for someone I never really met. Either way, it's unbelievable what happens to a person when you love someone and you lose them. I was really sick during my labor and have had problem ever since then. I am only 29yo and feel like Im 90! If I could ask for some prayers that would be really nice. I have been in and out of counseling and it helps a lot. It's only one time every two weeks. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone more often. So if any one would like to talk with me I would really appreciate it!

      Marguerite, so very sorry for your loss. Everyone grieves differently and in their own time. It took me months to begin to feel the full weight of the loss of my Mom. It's been 5 years and the tears still come unexpectedly at normal life events. You will heal in your own time. It won't be easy, but it will get easier and you will be able to help others facing similar situations. God Bless.

      My Husband & I Just Lost our 3 month old son Zechariah Jonathan on Feb. 2. They are calling it SIDS...The Problem is... We are in Ministry...And I feel everyone is expecting us to be completely healed by now.

      I know God has Strengthed us...but I want everyone to realize it just happened 2 months ago.

      We stayed busy for the 1st month... That's why we are feeling it now.

      Just want time to grieve... But everyone makes you think... If we don't keep going & ministering we will automatically get Depressed...!

      On November 04, 2011 My SOULMATE, My BESTFRIEND, The LOVE of My Life passed away from cancer, as scripture states when Lazarus was sick & dieing "The sickness did not come for the death of Lazarus, but for the Glory of GOD", My Baby now resides with our LORD & SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST in Paradise & I still cry & Miss her more with every passing moment, I anticipate the moment when I will join her, but I know that it's not My Will but GODS Will, nothing happens without GODS permission/knowledge, regardless of who asks, everything happens in its season, when my time comes for JESUS to call me home, if it is GODS will, I will be ready. I pray, read my Bible & visit my Baby everyday at her resting place where I talk to her & we pray together. There is only ONE GOD ALMIGHTY, CREATOR OF ALL, THE ALPHA & OMEGA and only ONE SAVIOUR, who is GODS only begotten SON - JESUS CHRIST - NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER BUT BY HIM! Words to live by!

      May I share some scriptures with you. I have learned that this system that we are living in now will soon come to an end. (Psalms 37: 10, 11) No more sorrow, suffering, death. I too have lost love ones but I found out that one day I can see those love ones again as long as i keep faith in God.(Titus 1:2) Acts 24:15 and John 5: 28, 29 talks about a resurrection. Please study the Bible and you will come to know that there is Hope for mankind.(John 17:3)

      I miss my little girl so much she was such a heart of gold, she was my world, she was my life, she passed away unexpectedly at the age of 5yrs and 5mnth on 14th feb 2009.

      She was locked in the bathroom and the door just slammed accidentally, I told her not to move, she not listen, by time I open the door as fast as I can, she was already, outside the window, near the little roof on the side, as the fly screen fell, it was raining and she accidentally slipped and fell from second floor to ground. the last think she said before she slipped, love u mummy and waved her hand goodbye, I never forget that day. Her brain was badly damaged as I had to choose either she lives on life support for a miracle to happen, or let her go. I had to let her go. Coz did not want her to suffer, it hurt me so much 3yrs have gone she would have being 8yrs old. She was so special to everyone had a heart of gold, I thank god forgiven me the time I had with her, and I thank god for being the mother of my special little angel who is now in heaven guiding me, to loose a child so young unecpectedly is something that no mother should ever go through in losing a child. She was starting her life, she was so beautiful an amazing little angel, sometimes I think is my fault but it not. I wish she was with me, i still grief, but i know she want me to be beside her, I may not see her but I know she is beside mme and looking after me from heaven like god and Mary. So any mother who lost a child or anyone in ur life ur not alone, ur never alone, u just hav to try n keep going n be strong i know u not be happy as before, but u have to try n be happy coz ur loved once would want u to be happy be strong n hav faith n hope n when i hav a daughter someday i hope she be similar to her sister in heaven. Remember u hav to be strong n try to be positive n thank god for everything u do, life is like a lesson, n god needed my daughter early in heaven n I know i see her someday in heaven m when I finish her wishes and my mission is complete here I will see my daughter in heaven and I know she is with me in my heart forever so please be strong and have faith don't loose hope, and be strong n I know iam not alone thank u.

      My husband died unexpectedly almost a year ago. The last words he heard me say to him were not very nice ones. I regret that terribly. I loved him so much, but the alcohol and drugs was so hard to deal with. I said wrong words for the right reason. The words you speak either tear you down or build you up(or other people). I just learned that lesson a little to late. I read the comments posted, and pray that God gives all of you peace. I hope the people that wrote posts read this. The words of the bible are seed. You have to plant the words of the bible like a farmer would crops. Find the promises that God gave all his children, say them often, meditate often. Write his words on your heart. He will answer. Vickie your post really touched me. I pray that all works out for you. Read Psalm 3, and Psalm 124. Trust and have faith in God. Talk to him often and he will help you. Jesus said I will never leave you nor forsake you.

      Today my heart is fearful and I havn't really talked to anyone, for the first time I went online to see if I would find help or encouragement. On Dec27 2012 our twenty day old granddaughter was killed. She was beaten and abused,we viewed her little body that evening so we could answer questions the coroner had. She was placed in our care by CYS for five days and much to our hearts dismay was releaced to her parents. Both parents were drug users, there is our dear little grandson who is living with us but that can change we have two hearings coming up this month. My son has been charged with her homocide but we have much evidence the mother abused her often, this is so complex and I feel like there is no one to listen, I try to cont to read my bible and pray daily but I feel like I am wound like a tight spring any help is appreciated.

      I lost my 29 yr old son last month to alcoholisum, the end started a year ago, we took him to good Drs, they banded the varises he bleed from twice, they warned him he would not survive another, yet he continued to drink the 3rd time he passed away in surgery, I miss him so it is un bearable, he was my youngest & a Momma's boy. I prayed so hard for God to help him to stop, I have had people act like it is not so hard, he did it to himself, Oh how cruel can people be, he told me 3 days before his surgery, he talked to Jesus every day & he knew my Momma had a place saved for him in heaven, he prayed with the caplain before surgery, it is not possible my Chad asked for forgivness & gave his self to Christ, he was baptized & was a Christian boy, the alcohol changed him so much, but still he was so soft hearted & would share with others so openly, I pray so hard but nothing seems to help my pain, I miss him so, only a Mother can know this pain, pray for me & please feel free to e-mail me. God Bless you all!

      Not only is it hard to lose a child but when you feel them kicking inside you one day and there heart stops the next it's devistating....I can only imagine what it would be like to have known her for years and have lost her when she was older.

      My dad went home 4 weeks

      Ago I knew he was sick and leaving soon the night I got off of work and visited him which I did daily , I walked in and saw him on the couch and God told me he was gonna take him that night . Me being human was upset and I knew I needed God so much to get me through this

      So I fell to my knees and asked God to please be with me and give me peace and understanding through this 8 hours of me being up through the nite and my dad awake but him not being able to talk and move God came to me. He took over my whole being and finally after 32 years in that moment I knew who God was I always thought I did but in this time I knew the hardest part of my life came upon me that night and he was there . I read the bible and prayed and told my dad thank you for giving me God in my life every day of my life my dad always talked about God and taught me about him . But most importantly he taught others about him he preached in prisons and in homeless shelters and lived for God and the hurting people in this world . He died in my arms and I felt God take him out of my arms and into his . My other siblings arrived and family arrived after God took him home and I had a joy and a peace that only God could give you and they did not understand it . I pray that God gives you and whoever has lost someone this peace that passes all understandings . And these scriptures that were given will get you through everyday

      I am living proof :) may God bless the brokenhearted

      Please , my parents both have passed away. My Mother after a blessed life that turned completely stressful and draining, while i feel that there was a hold over them and they were in binds that broke our family apart. I have tried to keep us together and I have prayed, and even after Mom's death things got even more tragic and terrible as my father drank a lot, wasn't home and was stressed, depressed and mourning the deaths of his parents and grandmother for a long time. My relationship with both of them deteriorated into disconnection while away at school. I would worry about my brother and how they were treating my mother while i was away. I was cruel to my parents a few times, but it was under the pressure and stress and torture i felt from how things had gotten, the arguments they had every morning, having to go to school and carry it with me being an empath, go to extracurricular activities. I have thought and sat for years. While my father was still here, I don't think his family was truly supportive and I ended up staying in my room in the midst of all the confusion and people and different words. My friends couldn't understand because of differen't reasons, upbringing, my parents own private struggles that i was left helpless and tried so many times growing up to save and bring comfort and try to change things, by the time I went to school I was so hurt and scared, but was trying to be strong and do what I had to do because that's what I thought I was supposed to do to make them proud. I would have never left for school, I would have stayed at home if i knew it was okay or possible, but it was like everyone splitting up. My brother was supposed to go out on his own, but he staid and was disrespectful, messy and differet things. I am deeply spiritual which is one of the reasons i was able to survive even though my heart had been broken over and over by boyfriend or family and no one understood. We didn't go to church anymore, I feel that those who would call themselves being family or trying to be there somewhere the ones who aided in their death , both from Cancer and very sudden. I worry that I may have played a part in it, because I feel like i could have done something sooner. I was the kind of child that was intuitive helpful , shy, liked to make people happy and always obedient and had an extremely strong connection with my parents that I loved so much and miss so much. Even with all the family who knew them growing up in Louisiana, it doesn't replace or make it better and i am scared because of many reasons. I didn't have these issues, but I let myself get into them, while still trying to preserve God in me, and i did that for my brother and father so that they could heal. I did sacrifice , but I want to know that we will be able to be together with them again. My mother gave of her life to be of service to the department of children and family services, my father an artist who felt like he may have failed, but i don'tthink he did. I am here now, and am searching for the right friend and right opportunity to be able to go on the journey back to them and to God because, i couldn't control what happened when i was little, now that i am 28 i am able to make my own choices and not have toxic or cruel friends who weren't there for me and only made things worse. I am venting now, and usually stay very positive. the last . Looking for help and true guidance and understanding to be complete and whole again. There's a lot to get out and a lot of people i wanted to help, but now i am treated like a failure, and it feels so short that they were here, and i don't feel complete without them...i am exhausted from silence and struggle and my spirit broken over and over and my soul feeling ignored and trampled on. I wanted to save my father, he was cruel , but yes so kind and warm and nice. My mother worked so hard and i feel like i forsake her and God by not making the right decisions when I was supposed to, there were moments when I knew I could do something and because of resentment, hurt, pain, anger , confusion, none of which I was able to express or took action on, but when i was on the phone with my mother , whom i was so close with it was like we read each others minds. She said, "if i keep having this stress ii'm going to die." the multitude of emotions that went through me at that time, miles away, why was she telling me this now, why did she let herself get that way, i don't need to be here, i don't need any money spent on me, i don't want to be away from you, i don't want you to stress, ,and i was hurt and angry, that i felt she was leaving and wanted to. but also relieved that she was going to finally take care of herself above everything else. when i got home , she had gotten sicker and the cancer was back, and there was no time to heal , i called everyone i could to try to heal her at age 23, she didn't want to, she spoke as if she was ready. and I think it's all my fault becuase i was the closest to her and because of how things were with her and my dad and i was made out to be the sweet innocent "spoiled" one when i never wanted any of that, i just wanted everyone to be happy, go to church and serve. Lord it is daunting and torturous, trying to move forward, explain and discuss and listen to opinions, all the while feeling like a stranger, especially being an old soul, trying to start over again and again and tell about things that are hurtful and feel like nobody understands the relationships. and my brothers go on the way they were before, but my brother who stayed here in the building had been extremely cruel and argued so much with my father and they didn't speak, and i would be so upset that he snuck girls into my mothers house, that they let me go out there, that they put in my head to spend all the money, they knew what that would do, that's all the said to me after my mother died, "well hope she doesn't spend all the money" with shame and guilt in their face unable to look at me in the eye because they knew how close me and my mother were and how i cherished our relationship, and very selfish, taking advantage of my mother. I would never express that, as I was ignorant to some things, but could see things clearly growing up and wanted to change so many things. My mother was loyal to family and that's what she gave her energy to, family and career. She had lost both her parents too in her 20's, and she would say , i just want to be back with my Mom... and i am trying to help myself. I was so crushed, devastated, and shocked when my mother died in the intensive care unit at the hospital , i couldn't contain it anymore, all my life, for what, I would rather have stayed and helped her than to go off to school or do anything else but be with them. There is so much to say, and now the chastising from family who didn't even know me back in Louisiana, painful and hurtful and i felt out of place having to go talk to them and listen. why weren't you there for them? why has my life been so stressful, then more stress, tragedy, then i meet with you, who are to be my fathers friends mothers friends, are you are all bitter and sny, trying to be kind. And today, there is such a pull and divide, facebook, and the attitude of trying to "get it" or "make it" and i am left in the dust, with no one to claim witness to the work I did before, and how good I was and how much I loved Jesus, why won't they see or acknowledge.

      I was looking for some way to relieve the pain I feel, someway to relieve the pain of the loss of an amazing woman and I found this website. She was the mother of my best friend. Nina died of cancer, she was one of the most amazing woman I have ever met. When she was in a room, her spirit filled the air, her voice was like a melody, when she spoke she sang and I knew that she was one of few people on earth who She was an amazing woman. She was intelligent, strong, witty, kind, loving, compassionate. I miss her terribly and am so sad for the pain my friend is suffering. She lost her father many years ago when she was a young woman and now she has lost her mom. I have spent two days cursing God for taking yet another one that I love and feeling sadness for the loss of my friend. Thank you for spending the time to share your stories. I am sorry you feel pain and hope that one day we will all find peace in our sorrow. God Bless.

      God saw you getting tired

      and a cure was not to be,

      so he put his arms around you,

      and whispered “Come to me”.

      With tearful eyes we watched you,

      and saw you pass away.

      Although we loved you dearly,

      We could not make you stay.

      A golden heart stopped beating,

      Hard working hands at rest,

      God broke our hearts to prove to us

      He only takes the best!

      I lost my boyfriend 2 months ago, but still both we have conversations of each other. He knows still I’m in love with him but he don’t want to get marry with me. And for me it’s very heard to get in my mind. Every single day I’m suffering because of my love. For the reason of that I failed to move on with my relationship. Still I’m struggling to take his love back, like before, and I’m tiring my best for it and I ran a across your posting searching for comfort in bible verses and find yours to be that. Am sorry, for the loss of your daughter. For me it’s a struggle I have crying spell everyday. Dear, please remember me in your prayers.

      It is heartbreaking indeed, to see the numbers here, the amount of us, heartbroken, over the loss of a beloved person in our life. Matters none wether it is our child, our siblings, our parents, our spouse or partners, best friends etc...When a person is very important and loved, the loss is Huge,Overwhelming, frightening and So So Painful. Sometimes I feel numb, even over God, but I Know, I KNOW, He is near me, even tho the pain is so great I may not feel Him. Thank You for all the scriptures here, mostly for the viewing and knowledge that I am not alone in my pain... On Feb. 2, 2011 I lost my oldest son (I have 2 sons), Barry age 25, to a drug overdose.He was a mentally ill drug addict, who fought for years to try and beat his addiction. His mental illness always interfered in his battle, his sobriety, and his strength. For many years he suffered and struggled because of the two diseases, it has been gut wrenching painful to watch my child fight and struggle and be looked down upon by so many in this world...Oh the pain of me, his mom, words cannot describe..Knowing he is now at peace often does not bring me, the human still on this earth, much comfort, I feel like I am dying inside, the pain is overwelming.... My son was a Christian, his bible was 4 ft away from him when we found his body... He spent part of his life sharing the Word of Yahweh (God)and touched and helped SO many lives.... It has been a great comfort to see I am Not Alone in my pain... Blessing and Love to all my fellow mourners out there, this world is cruel, and someday when we are united with our Father, we will understand the "Why's" of this world. For now we must "cling" to Him, and try to grow and glorify God thru and in spite of our loss...Remember Job in the bible? That was my son, that is all of us in our trials...I will pray for All of you as I also pray for myself. God Bless and Love, Bonnie ( Mother of Ninja Barry, R.I.P. my love)

      I have lost my dad yesterday and I feel sorry for me. I know that i didn't cause him to die but i still love him. I hope you read this because when a person dies, we should be happy for them because they are leaving the world of sin and the ones that are born, we should be sad for them because they are entering the world of sin.

      I lost my husband (COPD) July 10th. He was a kind and gentle man, a real Christian who loved people. I was told on Saturday morning that he had done well on the breathing test (2 hours off ventilator) and they would check him two more days and he could probably go home in a week or two. He died the next morning at 9:31 a.m.

      He was my best friend, my husband, my lover, my sweetheart, my everything. I am so devastated and empty feeling. Thanks for your verses. They have helped some.

      I have 5 children (all grown). One of them has stayed with me every night. They have now decided that I should stay by myself. It is a rural community and woods are all behind the house. I feel let down, although I know they have their lives.

      But Jesus will help me through this. I still cry everyday and go to the cemetery often. I loved my husband so much. I just want to thank God for giving him to me. He was my second husband. We were together 16 years.

      My first husband was mentally and physically abusive and ran around with other women. So, I really appreciated my second husband who treated me like I was special. I miss him terribly.

      Last week, I lost my father at age 67. He wasn't sick or anything. It was just sudden. It's been very difficult for me and my family. I'm trying to be very strong for both my girls (ages 20 & 16). I've been blessed with our church and have found some comfort. But, I'm still finding myself seeking for more, since we don't know the actual cause of death. So today after church, I decided to search more comfort. God listened and helped me find you. I've printed up your verses and plan to share them with my family. Thank you! I too am sorry for your loss.

      This really helped a lot. I was recently asked to talk to my youth group about losing one of my best friends, two weeks ago. Its soooo very hard. And I needed things to help me get along and to help with my lesson.. Its going to be very hard to give, but this helped. and all the comments did too. yes, we're all mourning, but God says that we will be blessed. keep your head up. it'll get better. it'll be two weeks tomorrow. My best friend Kylee was killed in a tragic car accident. it wrecked me. but in God, i am calmed.

      These comments are amazing, it's absolutly increadible to read through all this, seeing all the sorrow, but also all the strong faith there is in people. I am 17 as of July 15, I lost my closest cousin on July 5, 11 days ago. He was swimming in a small river and was pulled under by the current, he was missing for 4 days, he was 17 also. I seached verses for lost loved ones and found this Address and it has helped tremendously, I still don't understand why the lord has takin him home, but now I can trust that it was for a special reason and I will see him again. I was angry with God for a while and just kept coming back to this am it's given me some comfort. This is the second drowning I've gone through this summer, the first was a 20 month old baby boy, I still don't understand why the lord does these things

      My name is Sonia I'm 19 years of age and Its been exactly 5 months and 3 weeks since i lost my unborn child at 13 weeks and 5 days. Nothing can explain the feelings or emotions tha over take one when they deal with loss. And even more so, a loss of one of their own. It's a constant struggle trying to accept it and justify it, but nothing seems to do it other than facing reality and having hope and faith; hope that everything will get better, and faith in god. I cry every night... And get an overwhelming sadness when user pregnant people or even baby stuff. And the hardest part is that when I cry I can still hear his heartbeat, strong and fast.... It breaks my heart that I was not able to carry him along for the entire 40 weeks and never got to hold him... But I know he's with me every step that I take and that when I get to heavens gates he will be there. His expected due date was and is July 8th, 2011. And I plan to celebrate it every year from here on forth. He's my angel my god-given-gift. But he's with his savior and is in better hands. I love you mi chiquito, the amo con toda mi alma(my little one, I love you with all my soul)

      Rest in peace I'll never finish mourning you, always wherever I go, always in my heart, and forever in my soul

      It is almost 21 months since we lost our son in an ATV accident. I have lost many loved ones in my lifetime, but nothing has ever come close to losing our only son at 15. I know it is only by the grace of God that we are here today. Right before our sons accident, I had started going to church. After our son died, I was so hurt and even mad at God because I felt he had forsaken me and my family. I felt at the time that was more than I could bare and sometimes still feel that I can't bare it. But a few nights before our baby's accident, I got an old song stuck in my head that I hadn't heard in a long time." Life is easy when your up on the mountain and you've got peace of mind like you've never known, then things changes when your down in the valley, but don't lose faith for your never alone. For the God of the mountain is still God in the valley, when things go wrong he'll make them right. For the God of the good times is still God in the bad times. God of the Day is still God in the night. The talk of faith when your up on the mountain..the talk comes so easy when life's at it best, but it's down in the valley of trials and tempatations, that's when faith is really put to the test. This never occurred to me until the day of the funeral and I had no idea that they would sing that song. But when I heard that I knew that God was telling me that my son was with him and not to lose faith. I still have such a hard time but the only thing that keeps me going is God's promise that I will see him again someday. I pray God bless each and every person on here and meet each individual need. We all grieve differently and there is no right or wrong way to grieve, but if you put your trust in the Lord he will make sure you are not left alone and unconsoled. "Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them and ye shall have them. When you stand praying if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your father in heaven may forgive you your sins." Mark11:4 24and 25. God bless you all.

      I am so sorry about your loss. As I read your story, I am grieving my grandson who is 12 years old and still barely with us. We found out 1 yr ago he had osteosarcoma (bone cancer) and he has been fighting for his life since. We were told in March he had 4-6 weeks to live and he is with us today, but will be with the Lord shortly.Watching him suffer like this has been so hard on my daughter (mom) and the rest of the family. We are taking care of him at home and making him as comfortable as possible but there isn't a day I don't cry for my beautiful grandson who will be with our father God but, it has been so hard to watch him die slowly. Thank you for the bible verses for I have been reading them and will continue to have faith in the Lord.

      I lost my 22 year old son 3 weeks ago in a car accident, caused by a boy his own age. Louis was my life and I loved him so much. I would do anything for him. I feel dead from inside and do not want to carry on living without him. He meant the world to me. I hugged him as often as possible and I told him constantly that I love him very much. Why is life so cruel? Louis had no change surviving the accident. I would give anything to just be able to hold him one more time in my arms and tell him that I love him.

      Indeed the Bible offers hope and comfort because God cares about us. Thanks for all the wonderful scriptures all you people shared... its been very very helpful... I lost my oldest brother only yesterday during a bypass operation.... He is the second brother i lost, the other one was five years ago... it gives me strength and comfort knowing that we will meet our loved ones again someday in heaven as written in 1 Thessalonians 4:13 - 14 ("And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died.".) and knowing also that Jesus has prepared everything for us as written in John 14:1-4, it will truly be the most wonderful experience...I can only imagine.

      Hello, thank you for the wonderful scriptures. I also was searching online for comfort. On Sunday before last, our pastor asked people to come to the altar and she prayed for relationships. So many of our young people came forth and it was an awesome outpouring of God's spirit. My grandson was sitting in the back as he and his girlfriend had broken up. However she came forth and after she got prayed for, My grandson came up for prayer and the pastor began to pray for his heart, his mind and other things. At about 10:30 that night, his girlfriend was tragically killed by a former boyfriend. Our entire church is devastated, my heart is broken because I loved her so much and my grandson is in a fog. One thing we know is that she loved the Lord and it is so hard to understand such a tragic death. I know God will send the comfort I need but right now it's hard to understand but I know that Deut. 29:29 speaks of the secret things of God that are not always revealed to man.I am going to trust him and pray that each day will be a bit easier. Thank you again for those scriptures of comfort.

      I read almost everyones comment. And they are really comforting. I lost my mother 3 weeks ago to cancer from uterine cancer. I had so much faih in god and so did my mother that she will fight and win the battle of cancer. We prayed together. She was able to walk and read and a had a good appetite. All started 2 months ago, she started having more pain, and she was looking really pailed and weak, I took her to the hospital, the docoter told me he was surprise to see my moher still walking and talking she was severely anemic and he said the worst thing that the cancer had spread to rectum and bladder. My heart broke at that moment, he told me she had just a few months to live. I went to God and ask him why? This is not true we believe in your Words and I knw my mother is healed. I took my mother home after a week she was keep in the hospital. After that hospital visit my mother had no bladder control was like a baby, had no appetite was only drinking a lot of jiuce and was on the strongest painkiller every 6 hrs. I was so fustrated and very stressed out. I had to work and take care of three children and my mother. I ask god forhelp, but i felt like there was no God. Three weeks ago she died in my arms, she said she was hurting so much and she could not breath. We called 011 and they tried CPR when she was already gone, I was not ready for this to happen. To be honest i was very mad at God. I don't feel like that anymore, my hurt is puzzled and still have so many questions, but if continue thinking and asking god why? I wil go crazy. I just ask for prayers because its not easy. I was so close to her, she was my best friend. I miss her so much that sometimes I have no feelings for no one but i just want to be alone and sleep all day. I pray to God for peace in my heart and to comfort me. I kive my Lord and that will never change. Please pray for me and my siblings.

      Missing my baby 6 years ago

      I feel so strange in writing this, almost like I don't have the right to post this where people have lost their children. I hadn't really been p0aying attention to my calendar dates, and didn't know that I was pregnant at first. I had been ill (for over 3 yrs at that point) and run-down for a while, bc I just started working after my maternity leave was up.

      I was also had company from out of the country and was helping them to plan a wedding. I didn't know that I was pregnant again, but when I found out, I was elated. I was so excited to be able to go through this pregnancy. I was determined not to do what i had done last time. I was so ill in a previous pregnancy that I had lost 32 lbs. I was eating well, sleeping well and having fun. I never smoked, and never drank. I helped my eldest child to get ready for her very fist "After- School Dance", which I was to chaperone. She was so pretty. Everything was fine for the dance. I even danced to the music.

      When I got home, I wasn't feeling so well. I couldn't sleep. The pain was bad. The next morning, I noticed some spotting, but I convinced myself that "I've had this with my last pregnancy. It's going to ok, relax". It stopped. That night, pain was bad again. The next morning, I wasn't just spotting. I was in a lot of pain. I knew then that it was too late. My baby was gone. Worst parts:

      Feb 13th was my anniversary date,

      Feb 13th was the day before St.Valentine's Day.

      Feb 13th, 2010 was the day that I lost my baby.

      I lost my grandmother 11/23/2010. And during that time it was already going downhill for the family. It was by far the worst Thanksgiving and Christmas ever. Till this very day I cry like a baby. Every night I cry and ask God if I can see my grandma in my dreams so she could tell me she loves me one more time. I was losing hope and faith in God so I needed something to help me. As I read this it helped me a lot. But I still mourn over my grandma. Thank You and God Bless You.

      I would just read this one more time. "Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love? Does it mean he longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? ......... No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God's love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow -- not even the powers of hell can separate us from God's love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below -- indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord" Romans 8:35 - 39

      Phillipians 4:13 has always been of great comfort and strength for me, but since I lost my son of 31 years, I have questioned many times if that verse is actually meant for me. My son died Feb. 22, 2011 and I still hurt so badly that, at times, I feel I can't take another breath. If one more person tells me time will heal, I think I will just scream. What do they mean by "time"? When is that time. Does that time pertain to me, or just others who are stronger?

      I miss Jonathan so much that I am having a very difficult time taking care of normal daily activities. I am going to search and study each of the verses you listed and really try to find some comfort for my soul. I will use this study as a reason to get out and stay out of the bed everyday. Thank you for your encouraging gift of time to help others.

      I went to the web and searched for words of comfort. I need to hear and see them.

      My wife (Teresa) of 25 years, died last Sunday March 13. She had fought cancer for the last 16 months, and she hung on much longer than expected. Each day I count as a gift to me.

      She hung on for her family with great strength through lots of suffering.

      We are both Christian's, She brought me and our two children Cody (19) and Christopher(18)to the lord. As Jesus is the rock to all of us, she has been the rock to our family.

      I have never received such love in my life (Sent from God) and it is hard for me to comprehend it. She was enduring in love beyond my understanding.

      It has devastated me beyond words. I have felt lost beyond measure and have been speaking with God daily. I have been so worried by so many things that pain me. Mainly my loss of her, the inability to write or phone. Will she still know me and love me in heaven.

      Some words that comfort me that I find are these.

      O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?

      We never discussed our place together in heaven, now it is too late.

      I don't want to ever have another, just her again. This is what pains me the most. Will it be the same? I don't know but if there is no sting to death as God promises, it has to be better. Because the sting, is very real to me right now.

      I know we will be known as we were and that it my hope, for to be born anew with no memories would be pointless.

      Wake me up for the first time in heaven and let me pass the earthly life by, for there was no need, if I am to forget my most precious Teresa. I want to be with her at all costs.

      It will not be so, though, for we have to know our past lives here to know we are receiving something better, beyond our comprehension (what we have now). This keeps me going, if only for a few minutes, before I break down again.

      We have not been strangers to death.

      We have lost our Mothers toghether and our Fathers. I have lost my only Brother as well. We have lost numerous Uncles and Aunt's whom we have Loved Greatly over our years together.

      But this is Bittersweet. She suffers no longer and is in Heaven this is sweet. She is gone from me this is Bitter and I wonder if I can go on. So I welcome all prayers, please pray for me as I feel lost and alone. Pray for my children as well. We need God's healing touch for I am undone.

      It's very true. Faith is the only way to survive. Believe, trust and surrender to His will.

      I lost my wife 2 months ago, 1 day after giving birth to our only child. No words can express the pain. So many questions, I'm just glad I re-gain my faith at once. I may not be able to find the answers right now, I know God has a wonderful plan.

      "Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return. They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness." Isaiah 51:11.

      I have lost 3 brothers in a row, one died in 2001, the other one died in 2006 and the last one died in 2009. It has been really a hard moment for me and my family. After losing soo many brothers, all i had in my heart is anger, hating God and asking him why my family and only my family has to go thru this. The anger has really been poisoning me up and I came to appoint where i dint care anymore in life, i have been soo lost in life, ave lost the meaning of live and ave been surviving rather than living. I lost my capabilities and my goals and dreams became fague. Now yesterday I was driving home from a party and somehow i started discussing about how many brothers i have lost with a friend of mine. I kept on going on and he was listening and responding when necessary. After i was at home Tears started flowing out of my eyes uncontrollably something that hasn't happened to me for a very long time. After crying for a long time(and i was really screaming) I felt my heart lighten up, I started like a stone has been removed out of my heart. That is when i realized that all those years ave been soo mad at the whole situation that i dint even have time to grieve my loss. I feel a lot better now and hope it will continue this way. All i want to tell you pple who have lost their loved ones, it is very important being able to talk about your loss, find someone who has time and who understands what you are going thru, you can shout,pour out your anger, cry loud and it is going to help you to be able to accept what has happened. Never close anger, dissapointment and hate inside you, they are consuming and am talking this out of experience.Sorry for those who have lost their loved ones, it is a hard battle but we have to fight thru coz we don't have a choice but we can still learn to live with this and prevent our lives being destroyed by the fact that we are soo much in pain.Don't forget, we will meet our loved ones someday in heave. and it will be the most wonderful experience...I can only imagine.

      I stumbled upon this site this evening after coming to the realization that I am dealing with post traumatic stress syndrome. I lost my twin daughters in 2008, and although I have my "good" days, some days are unbearable. One of my daughters was stillborn, and my other child lived for eight days until she contracted MRSA and died. The events of that night hit me hard at times. I remember pleading to God to please let my child live, but my prayers went unanswered. I still have to believe that our God knows what is best and one day I will know why my only children were needed more in heaven than with a mother who loved them dearly. But we are human and the pain is indescribable and I think this is what "faith" is all about. My heart goes out to all of you who are in such immense pain, I am also sharing in your heartache. Please dive into the word of God no matter what you may believe to be true and no matter how things appear in the natural. Meschill, thank you so much for trying to help others when you are obviously dealing with so much. You are all in my prayers. Matthew 5:4: “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” There is always someone hear to listen when you need it.

      She was my best friend and it is so hard to live without her.

      I loved and still love my mother but if I were to ever lose one of my children or grandchildern I believe I would go into a catatonic state and just stare off and never be normal again.

      The year 2010 was not a good year for me and my family. I lost my Mother unexpectedly in September. It has been a rollercoaster for me. If it wasn't for my 19 month old daughter I think I would lose my mind. My Mother was my everything and its so hard knowing that I wont see her again in this life. I also know that God makes no mistakes and everything he does is for a reason. My family lost three other members within weeks of each other, it has been extremely hard on my grandmother because she lost her niece,her daughter,her brother and her sister all in a matter of weeks, back to back. So I'm trying to hold on to my faith, its just so hard. Can anyone give me some advice on how to cope with this heartache?

      I lost my son and best friend 11 months ago in strange circumstances. It is the very hardest thing to accept that it will be so long before we catch up with each other again. I never realised that I could love someone to such a degree. The pain comes and goes in a never ending flow. I have had to trust totally in Gods word and the power of prayer to keep myself from giving up. These verses are God sent and the support from others is good to see.

It was my freshman year college, February 6 it was a horrible storm and my parents couldn't make it down to tell me. I broke down in tears and today the tears came back. I didn't know who to call, so I called my mother for comfort. She told me to read a bible verse and I stumbled across this page. It's amazing how something that was written over a year ago is still touching people's hearts today. It's been three years and the pain has not diminish.

      MissingJoshua 6 years ago

      My son Joshua (22) was killed in a car accident Nov. 8, 2010. My first born so that walked and talked before he cut his first tooth! The joy of my life! He was not only my son but my friend and brother in Christ! I know I will see him again! I am counting on it! It's the only thing that is getting me through this. I cry everyday, wishing I could have him back, however, Jesus needed him more, or so I am told. I've been wondering about that because I have no desire to live without my Joshua. He was such a smart, caring and loving person to be around. He had his BA in English and was working on his Masters. I was amazed by his desire to learn and the fact he wanted to use what he had learned to teach others was just a gift this world shouldn't have to loose. The main thing he wanted to do was to bring more people to know our Lord Jesus Christ! Which I must say would make any parent proud. He could have been a famous singer his voice was made for that job. He's singing in God's choir now. Joshua was always there to help his mom with my many health problems he was always appreciated for his kindness. I miss him so much, and I ask God to take me home to heaven so I can be with my Joshua and worship our Heavenly Father forever.

As children you learn skills to help you adapt in life. We all know there is no answer for these tradegys. The anwer is beyond our understanding. Look at the pyramids, some of the wallls are at a perfect 90 degree angle to 1/1000 of an inch.. 3000yrs ago..out of stone with hand tools??? Some of you are religious some of you aren't. I believe in god. And science proves that energy cannot just stop. But I saw my baby she was gone.. I am a mess I cry all day. It seems writing is the only way our thoughts make us seem sain. I have received signs from my baby that are beyond understanding. I haven't gotten mad. Why?? How could that do any good. No one can tell you what to believe and no one can 100 % scientifically prove anything. But my baby is in heaven. The same angel she was on earth. When I. Die she will be waiting in that stunning dress. That's my belief. I love her parents sooo much. I can't do anything to make them feel better. I can just tell them I love them. Do the things that my baby and I loved to do. What other choice do we have. I love you katy we had some so special on earth..true love. I will do the best I can for as long as I can sweetie. Until I see you and get that I do. I pray for all of you who are living with tradegy.. trust we will be rewarded. Or don't that's our gift we ccan believe what we want. God bless all of you.

      Reuben 6 years ago

      My name is Reuben, I am 21 years old.My 18 year brother diagonised with schizophrenia in Poland by March last year , came to School in London in July this year and by october he started having episodes and left the house 1 night just hours after I left to go to my university. I searched for him and was hoping he'll come back after pastors told me he will, the police and missing people's unit were also informed. I got news from the police that a body matching my brother's description had been found in the river thames by november 10th. He couldn't be identfied because he had been in the water and some body parts were missing. They took my DNA and all through this time I was hoping and having faith in God that he wasn't the one until the DNA result came back in December 20th that it was indeed him. I am so devastated.He was buried yesterday, my mum still doesn't believe he is the one, my dad believed afer he identified him from a chipped tooth he had. This is the worst moment of my life as looking back I wished I understood him more and did more for him. Schizophrenia is a very stupid disease and I wish I knew more about it before it took my brother's life. The thought of never seeing my brother is killing me. I don't know what and how to comfort my mother because this came as a big shock to all of us. The bible verses written here hasn't really comforted my hurt but i have hope knowing that he's in a better place. I just want to know what I can do to help my family most especially my mom bear this loss. I have 3 biological sisters and a brother left. Please someone help me, death has never been this close to me before.

      I just buried my brother Michael of 36 yrs old who died of hypothermia whilst walking. The cause of which is still being investigated. This was a walk done 10's and 10's of times before. I live 200 miles away. I have always lived away from my family for 26 years due to army and my lifelong love. I am not overtly religious however prayed always for my partners parents and my parents and also my brother and close friends. now 3 of them are gone. did i do wrong. was i too remote. I wanted to find something in the bible about a lost brother. I do own my own King James Version to refer to. I should have helped him more so I am racked with guilt. He didn't always take my help and so sometimes its best to let peoples lives take their own course of independance. But I should have done more. Like many others the pain of losing someone prior to our expected 3 score and 10 is unbelievable but it is amazing how many people you get to see who rally to support. The finality of my brothers passing will haunt me forever and I don't want to get over it. It will and has changed me but he wont get the benefit. As I am 44 I have lost at least 20 more years with him but not out ever of my mind. Now I feel I am neglecting those close. Any guidance to the scriptures would be helpful. At the time of my brothers passing I felt unbelieveable grief for the other families who have lost their own loved ones around the same time. I just want him back. Ty for reading. Love John.

      passing away so very young. You are in my thoughts and I hope you find

      the strength to move forward. It is so difficult as I lost my 34 year old

      son Bradley from Acute Respiratory Failure and Cardiac Arrest. After the

      Funeral friends and family keep in touch but only the very caring people

      will always be by your side. No one seems to know what to say or do but

      really all they have to do is be there to give us support and caring, there is

      nothing they can say or do to make us feel better. You will have many

      beautiful memories of your daughter that you can treasure forever and

      no one can ever take away from you. Thinking of you, God Bless.

But, there is an emptiness, a loss, that I have felt my entire life.I am so grateful for my children and family. They are the reason that I find the strength to get through my days. Even though I have them, I always feel alone. I have prayed for this loss to be filled, but I do not feel worthy to heal this feeling. The emptiness and loss I feel is for God.

      I lost 3 loved ones on September 3rd, 2010. They were murdered in broad daylight. It hurt so bad!!!! I thought God has forsaken me and my family. I went on YouTube and started playing "Praise you in the storm" by Casting crowns. All of a sudden, I felt a certain peace in my mind. It was then I felt reassured that God still cares and loves me dearly.

      To those who are in mourning right now, please listen to the song and just let your mind free. God will console all of us. Please Don't give up & Don't lose hope.

      2 Corinthians 1:3-5

      "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

      I lost my best friend two months ago and I cant accept that she is not here. I started to doubt God - everything is going wrong in my life, lost my job, lost my best friend, struggling to support myself and child, I prayed everyday but nothing, nothing at all everything just got worse. I decided to go to midnight Mass last night and I cried the entire time. I felt that I had to release it all to God, anger, frustration, grief, the people at the mass were very nice to me, I wasn't sobbing just could not stop the tears. I will tell you that I woke up this morning - Christmas morning and I am alone, my family is all away and my son went to his Dad's, but I woke up happy, content, not depressed at all!!! I thought this day would be terrible but I feel ok. I still am sad about my best friend Kathy and I did cry a few tears, but not the depth of pain I felt yestarday,. I believe that God lifted my pain - I will never doubt God again and will attend Church more often there must have been a reason for me going last night - I almosts didn't but something kept telling me to go. I believe that it will help, it helped me a lot. Merry Christmas Kathy

      Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father's home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going." John 14:1 - 4 this really touched me because I just lost my sister Oct. 3 my heart is really heavy right now but after reading other people's comments I know that I am not alone that there are a lot of people hurting and I know that you have to hurt before you heal and that prayer goes a long way so I just continue to keep my faith in God and I know that I will get through this. thanks for your postings fo all the scriptures they were very helpful to me.

      I lost my son about 3 and 1/2 years ago, It was like I was gutted, I fell into a bad depression and suicidal, I did not want to go on, I have 2 other children, my son was 29 and killed in an atv accident, and at that time I prayed every night for Michael to come to me, well he never has, and with my belief in God I now pray he is with me every day in my heart, I feel all the pain daily, but have moved on, but will never forget my son, and pray for all those who have went thru this tragidy, and you will some day remember your child's life rather than their death, God Bless all of you

      I just lost my wife of 30 years. Her Daughters and my son Had to handle everything. We lived on SSDisability. Neither of us could work part time let alone full Time. I have always Blamed myself because of my inability. Har medical was paid by both Medacate and Medicade; mine are paid by the VA. We were worring about regular bills and she worried about Holidays. I could not afford normal household needs let alone her funeral. Her kids did not ask what I planned, they knew If she had insurance she would not have medical. I know she and the whole worald would have been better off had I never been born or had the guts to do the right thing and disapered long ago.

I know this type of loss is very different from yours, (by the way, sorry.) but I want to know everything about Heaven, will he remember me? Will he still have that marvelously handsome face? Will he be the same guy that I fell in love with. He died a month before his 17th birthday. And I just, thought maybe these would comfort me,

      Hi Meschill,

      i can only imagine what you are going through.

      just 2months ago i lost my hubby in a road accident plus 7memebers of his family including his 2brothers. it has been hard coping and coming to terms that i sometime wish i was with them that day.

      you can only imagine what their mother is going through, losing 3children, a dauhter in law an 4grandchildren.

      my life has really changed and feels unworthy and doesn't make sense anymore.

      i hurt everday and find myself crying most of the time.

      i hope this bible verses will give me comfort though sometimes i feel mad at God for talking all 8people from one family but i guess it was his will and his will must be done.

      Melissa (Sister of Ashley Jerina killed OCT 9, 2010) 6 years ago

      I would just like to thank you for all the helpful scripture that you gave. I lost my baby sister on October 9, 2010 in an automobile accident/ attempted robbery (still under investigation) She was only 20. I feel so robbed and hurt for my kids. Ashley was such a great aunt and sister. She was the passenger in a car driven by her boyfriend who lived with only minor injuries. The story is still not completely clear but some type of attempted robbery/ attack took place and her boyfriend tried to drive away out of fear and was traveling over 100mph while the people chased him and he wrecked the car ejecting my sister. We never did get to see her again and the funeral was closed casket. Its just so hard not knowing what the truth is of what happened we are only going based on things that the police have told us and its so hard. Never getting to see her and that again. I feel so empty. Ashley was a very strong believer and let it be known that she believed in God. I just miss her so much and my kids ages 14, 9, 5, an 2 are struggling. My heart goes out to everyone that has lost someone close to them. It hurts and threw God I pray that I can make it through the rough times.

      Hi Meschill.

      First I want to say I am so, so sorry for the terrible loss of your precious 19-year-old daughter. I too lost my 19-year-old daughter in a terrible car crash on her way to the beach with friends. 3 of the 5 children were killed including my daughter. It happened 4 years ago, and it has been a rough road so far. I had no idea grief could be so debilitating.

      I just read your hub page of the scriptures that most helped you with your grief. They were wonderful, and I thank you for sharing them. I too am a Christian, and one of my favorite presents I received to help with my grief was a little pamphlet of scriptures to help during grief. I read it over repeatedly for my sanity even though I had many Bibles nearby! We need things greatly simplified through such trauma, don't we?! I will copy your scriptures and use those by my bedside now! You are very kind to reach out to us in such a way.

      My heart breaks for you and I do hope I get to "meet" you, at least through the internet someday.

      May God bless you and hold you oh so close to His tender heart,

      Angie Prince

But now it seems I am intears daily, on my way to work, at work, at home, in the shower, when Im cooking dinner. I try so hard to be strong for my kids but this is the deepest, strongest hurt I have ever felt in my life.

      I just want to thank you for sharing this w/ everyone. We recently lost my mother on August 27, 2010 after being in the hospital for over 2 1/2 mths. It got us by surprise how it all just ended the way it did. She was very ill but than started to improve so much. All of sudden she would not respond anymore and than that night what hurt the most is that the nurses didn't bother calling us on time to get there and be w/ her. She was alone. That is torturing me that i wasn't there. for sum reason my heart tells me it wasn't time for her to go that sumthing went wrong and they didn't do nothing to fix it... My mother was my best friend my everything and now that shes gone everything is so different here... But thank you once again for these verses and for sharing ur story w/ everyone.. Im very sorry for ur loss.

Jesse John Anderson died on September 3rd. Jesse is now in a better place but the loved ones that he has left behind are falling apart.. my sister has been reading the bible non stop ever since. She knows that Jesse would want her to turn to god if anything has happened to her. God has gotten his whole family through this very difficult time and also all the prayers from everyone.

He was a wonderful singer, had radiating smile and never did anything to hurt anybody. We witnessed a funeral that never ever happenend in our locality. He was loved by all. He has left behind his wife and 10 month old baby Agnes.

      As our bishop said, God loved him more that we loved him. We are all living each day with a hope that we would meet and be with him for ever. Pls remember my parents who are totally shattered,his wife and child, we -his siblings.

      and your children and grandchildren with their unconditional love can help through the sorrow.

      Nor time can heal the pain we carry in our soul

      for an time passes we go through changes

      but never a complete exeptance that our child is gone,

      because that part that is gone it also took a part of

      thank you for these scriptures..i've been hurting so much my brother died in a car accident June 08, 2010. he wasn't a child he was 34, it still hurts. my parents are so upset as well. He was a God fearing man. i've been struggling because he left behind two small girls 3 and 4 years of age who needed him and his son who needed him to teach him lots of life skills, he is 12. these scriptures help and now i will pray them over their little lives as well because they don't fully understand his death. they still ask and cry for him. his son misses him. it breaks our heart. we are all heartbroken. these scriptures comfort me as well. i cry so much these days. i never thought our close knit family would ever have to struggle through an ordeal like this. it helps that God promises He will never leave nor forsake us.

      Hi, meschill i just wanted to thank you for these beautifull verses.God bless you.I just lost my beautifull daughter in march 2010. It was a long 10yrs of pain and suffering for my 10yr old.She was born with spinol cerebelar ataxia type 10. It was hard because there was no medication or any kind of cure for my baby and she suffered so much. Doctors didnt have any answers for me i thought i was going to go crazy. Then july of 09 she went in to the hospital with a flu and none stop seizures day and night and dotors couldnt do anything after that she went into a coma for about 2 weeks. When my baby woke up she was not the same anymore she didnt recognize me couldnt hear,talk, walk she was imobile in bed 24/7. She was like that for about a year. Thats when i decided i cant do this on my own no more i need god his comfort. I decide to go to church for the first and a week later the pastor, brothers and sisters from church went with me to the hospital were my baby was at and we prayed and asked god to please have my baby get better or take her with him so that all her suffering stopped. And a week after that my baby passes away in her sleep.She was in her bed and with like a smile in her face. I know she is in a better place now. But i miss her so much. There is times were i just break down its been really hard. Now im readin more my bible and find comfort in gods word. I do thank you so much for these verses that i was looking for. God bless you.

      Like you my world was torn apart almost three years ago when I lost three close family members, one my oldest son Shaun in the course of one year. My mother passed in Jan. 2007, after being diagnosed with a stage 4 brain tumor at the age of 84. Six months, within six months she was diagnosed and gone. Still mourning her death I was told on the night of August 6th, 2007 that my oldest son age 29 had died. Then on September 6th, 2007 I received a phone call informing me that my only sister had died. I have found great comfort with an on-line bereavement community as well, and with hope, faith, endurance and the love of God have sustained life now only with my youngest son who is 19.

      We have been alone and if not for the saving grace of God I've no idea where we would be today.

      I do not believe it is for us to know who goes to heaven or not. Only God is the judge and only He knows what he will decide. In the Bible, God tells us what we need to know, to make sure we ourselves are saved. But obviously all of God's wisdom and knowledge cannot fit in the Bible. I do know that God is Just and we can trust his judgement on everything.

      I just lost my beautiful son, Michael on March 6,2010. He too died in a car accident, right around the corner from his sister's house. He was on his way much sorrow:( I know that God never gives us more than we can handle, Michael thankfully knew the Lord and I will see him again...but still I feel like I cannot breath sometimes. My only comfort has been God, His Word , The Comforter , and my Lord. This is were the rubber meets the road for a Mother of Faith. I Praise God that I had such a beautiful son for 23years!I found great comfort in the verses you shared...I would love to hear more from you, I have been trying to find a fellow Christian who has lost a child, and my heart is so broken. Any tips or things to expect(if there are such things) would be so greatly appreciated. Your Sister in Christ, Annie

      Hello, we gave birth two weeks ago, celebrated our sons first week of living in intensive care then Guy, our first born of fraternal twins, died on day eight, mourning him, Edwards gave us just enough time then he himself got a collapsed lung and so we went through the same process to put him, our second born son to sleep two days later. They both died at my breasts, it was all I could do as a mother.

I am always respectful humble and compassionate toward others although some how I have been to more funerals than I can count on my fingers and toes , child hood friends and high school friends who will always be turly loved and missed , many of so were immediate family and mostly young. Those who were immediate within my family of an older age , cause of death harsh and violent. I met a friend this past summer while working a new job , this man had lost his 7 year old son to a drowning accident in the early 80's. I also made a friend four years ago who's mother passed away from lou garrets disease , when this young mans mother passed he was only 24 years old. These GREAT MEN helped me understand that I wasn't the only one who suffers from profound lose. I lost my grandfather to murder I was 14 years old , at age 18 I lost my father age 42 ,to a car accident.At age 21 I lost my grandmother to a harshly bias hospital , at age 26 I lost my first cousin age 21 to a car accident. At age 28 I lost my little brother to a car accident, he was only 26 years old , and my best best friend passed away october 7 2009 , he died from cancer. I think that you are Brave Strong and Courageous ,GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER. MAY YOU ALWAYS BE GREATLY RESPECTED I could not begin to wonder how you most feel however I do know that your not alone.

      John 16:22---

      "Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you."

      This verse reminded me of someone close to me that I lost, and it made me realize that they don't want me to be upset, and that I will see them again in heaven.

      "Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return. They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness." Isaiah 51:11

      I Know, already, that there is too much for me to comment on in your article. So, I will only comment on the first one.

      If God Gave you this Scripture, then He was telling you that you will see your daughter, again. This Scripture is premonition of the New Jerusalem. The Spiritual City where God will live with the Followers of His Son, Yeshua. The Message He Gave me associated with the one I love was, "on a later date, at the Main Gate... the East Gate" The East Gate is the Gate to Jerusalem that the Messiah uses to Enter the City.

      Beautiful, beautiful, Scripture!

      Love Always and God Bless!
