I’m truly sorry for the loss and pain that you are feeling because of losing Delores. To endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death is extremely difficult. We all deal with it differently and God knows this. That’s why throughout the Bible he has made repeated references to the resurrection to help us have hope that we will see our loved one again. The hope he provides is like an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us, keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness so we can go from one day to the next. Throughout the Bible, God keeps reminding us that he will return our loved ones back to us so we can enjoy their company once again. (Acts 24:15, John 11:23-25) Other scriptures are Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live…And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever…” and 1 Corinthians 15:26: “And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” God guarantees us a resurrection. He promises a time very soon where no family, even yours, will ever have to mourn the death of a loved ever again at Revelation 21:3,4. When he brings the reality of his promised resurrection, he will replace all your tears of pain with tears of joy.
I would like to express my deepest sympathy to each of you for your loss. Almighty God is aware of the afflictions that we suffer and the deep distress that we encouner. He assures us through his Word that he is going to bring an end to death and all the things that causes us suffering and pain.
