    My deepest sympathy to the family of Twila. God knows your deep heartache and the many tears you shed and he wants to sustain you. In the Bible at 2 Corinthians 4:7 it says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal,” to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. We can recover because of our hope. When Jesus was on earth he saw the grief that his friends Martha and Mary experienced at the death of their brother, Lazarus, the Bible says, “Jesus cried,” (John 11:35). Afterwards, he resurrected Lazarus. Everyone was so joyful at having Lazarus back with them. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out.” Jesus was referring to the resurrection. This is our amazing hope that anchors us. 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. It helps us recover and have the power to go on. Not only does God provide the Bible promises to comfort, he will also comfort you by moving people who care about you to give you help and words of encouragement that you need to hear. When he brings the reality of his promised resurrection, all your tears of pain will be replaced with tears of joy.

    I'm so sorry for your loss and I offer my deep condolences to the family and friends of Twila. In your time of mourning, I'd like to share some comforting thoughts from the scriptures. The Bible speaks of a time when there will be no more death or suffering. I have found comfort in the words recorded at Revelation 21:4 where it says, "And he will wipe every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore, the former things have passed away." I also find the words recorded at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 reassuring, it reads, "Praised be the God and father of our lord Jesus Christ, the father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God." I hope you can lean on God to give you comfort in your time of need.
