I''m sorry for your loss.
Death is such a trying event that it''s called an enemy in the Bible at First Corinthians 15:26.
But Jesus gave us a hope in the Bible at John 11:25: "I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life."
So, we will be able to see our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. Then we will never have to lose them again.
Why can we say that? Because God has promised us this in the Bible at such scriptures as Isaiah 25:8, Isaiah 26:19, and Revelation 21:3-5.
Isn''t this good news?
Please read these scriptures in your own Bible.
Sincerely, Rosemarie
