Why did this have to happen? Why now? What will life be like without the person you lost?
You’re devastated. Maybe angry. And trying to make sense of it all.
It would be great if there was an easy explanation that would cover all situations and answer all questions. Unfortunately, we don’t always understand why things happen to us that seem so senseless or evil. The Bible talks about “the mystery of iniquity” (2 Thessalonians 2:7 KJV), suggesting there is a mystery to some of the things we experience, even when a loved one passes away.
The loss of a child, parent or friend is very painful. God allows us to have a grieving process so we can cope with the pain. He knows your anguish, grief and anger.
You hurt deeply, but be assured that God knows exactly how you feel. How do we know this? We know it because God’s only Son, Jesus Christ, also died. He suffered and died on a cross so you could be at peace with God. He understands your heartache and wants to surround you with His love if you will let Him.
For those who trust in Jesus, the sadness of losing a loved one is only temporary. Not only did He make a way for us to experience indescribable joy in heaven, but He promises to help us through our grief on earth. In Matthew 5:4, He says, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” By Billy Graham
