Grief and Loss

What The Bible Says About Dealing With Grief And Loss

Grief and Loss is unpredictable in human life. You would have come across many people in your life who might have brought happiness in your life. But you cannot expect that they will be with you forever. Time changes everything and you may need to face a departure which would be temporary or permanent. Do not worry; God is there with you always, the only person of refuge, who can turn your grief into joy and loss into gain. The Bible says, “For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones”. (Isaiah 49:13)

You might have invested a lot of money in your business, but you face an unexpected loss. Definitely it is a biggest loss which would be unbearable. As the Bible speaks, in Proverbs 14:23, “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty”, hard work will have its harvest of happiness. The loss will be a temporary one, which will surely teach you what incorrect steps you would have taken. You should fix those at the early stage and set up your business strategies right.

The loss of parents is another biggest loss; the child becomes an orphan and loses the true love and comfort of his parents. It is a heaviest loss and a mother’s love cannot be compared with any other love in this world. You will find a most touching verse in the Bible which says, “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you” (Isaiah 49:15). How loving our God is? When you think that he is at your side always, then grief and loss will run away miles apart from you.

God wants you and me to be happy. God does not make us suffer because He is angry with us. The only thing which I think during my tough times is that, there are people in the same world I live in, who suffer much more than I do. There are people without food, shelter and many suffer from various diseases and have no money to sure themselves. Everything which happens, good or bad, God has done nothing wrong. It is your laziness, incapability, procrastination of doing things at the right time.

“May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word” (II Thessalonians 2:16-17). Just pray to God to give the strength to face every loss, grievance and the courage to overcome them.

ENCOURAGE YOURSELF: No one knew about loss more than Job God’s faithful servant. God even asked Satan to consider His servant Job. According to (Job 1:8) LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
