How To Deal With It.

in HeartChurchlast month


John 11:21-24 (NIV)

“Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died.
But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”
Jesus said to her, “Your brother will rise again.”
Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.”

How do you deal with the death of a loved one? I know it is never an easy thing to talk about or have to deal with. This is why it is so important for us to make sure they stay in faith so the pain of them going away would be less bearable.

I know I felt so hurt losing dad, mum and then before then, losing our only sister. Nothing else made sense to me. I just didn't understand anything because I felt it was cruel. Why do people really need to die but much later, I get to understand that we are of this world but we are not made for this world. When we understand this and the person who died knows Jesus, then it is easier to bear. We know God gives and takes. We also know their journey on earth has ended so we don't really need to sweat it because we all have our time and whether we like it or not, it will come.

Martha knew how painful it was to lose her brother and she wanted to hold on to him so long that they sent for Jesus when he was sick. We need to think about God in the greater scheme of things knowing that only His will must be done. His will was for Lazarus to be raised up so as to inspire faith in others so when we lose anyone, we should know that only His will must be done because He knows better.

No way a leaf will fall from the tree and He wouldn't know. As small as the Sparrow is, God knows how to keep it safe and how much more humans created in His image. He knows the end from the beginning and He sees the bigger picture than us. Just as the heaven is higher than the earth, so are His ways higher than us.

When we factor in God and knows He would do nothing without a reason and we trust Him, it makes it bearable to deal with the loss of a loved one. This world will pass away and Heaven is the goal. Jesus is the way, the truth and life. No one can get to the Father in Heaven without Him. There is no death, mourning and sadness in Heaven. Let's live for Heaven and bear this earth since our time is just for a short while here.

Thanks @olawalium, Everyone will realize from this post that creation exists but the earth does not exist. So we all have to leave this world forever. This is the eternal truth.

The earth will indeed pass away but God's Word stands sure.

This is a difficult topic for everyone, for example I have not overcome the death of my mother, I miss her too much, I know that we will all die but it is quite painful, maybe it is because only 2 years have passed, I hope that time helps me overcome your absence.

That's a painful one, I must admit. I still think about mine but I am just consoled in the fact that they are in a better place.

Allah created death and life to test us. We know it's very difficult when your loved one leaves us, It’s cannot be tolerated but we have to be patient and we have to think this is a test for us. We have to remember the one who can win this test will get the heavens.

Yes, the earth will pass away but God's ways are forever true.

the departure of loved ones is very difficult to deal with. Especially in this Covid era where people just leave the land of the living anyhow. In light of this, I am reassured that the Holy Spirit will comfort every believer going through tough times right now.

Absolutely. Holy Spirit is a perfect comforter.
