Surviving The Death of a Loved One- 10 Bible Verses To Get You Through

Black Woman grieving

I know it’s going to take a miracle, but if anybody can do it, I know God can!

Black Woman grieving

In life, we are a part of different types of relationships: with relatives, marriage, children, co-workers, business partnerships, friendships, etc. And in some of these relationships we develop very close connections, trust, peace, love and more.

These people in our lives feel like home. So imagine if you were to lose someone that you’ve developed a strong relationship with. It may feel like your heart has left your chest. Life as you’ve once known it, is over.

How can you possibly survive?

You survive by releasing your pain to God and allowing Him to heal your broken heart. And for those of you that have experienced such great loss, and are upset with God because of it, I can relate.

When my father died years ago I was very upset with God. However, because of my intimate relationship with Him, I knew God understood my pain, like He does yours. And you coming to Him expressing your hurt won’t offend Him. Just don’t turn your back on Him, let Him in now more than ever.

The feeling of hopelessness, the regrets of all you should have or could have done with and for that person, and the ache of their presence being such a huge void, will eventually fade. That’s not to say that the memory of the loved one will be gone, but the sting of their death will no longer paralyze you. You will survive. Survive through the wonderful memories you have of them. Let their lives live on in your heart

Day by day you will have to make a conscious effort to not allow yourself to succumb to the grief. Everyone grieves differently, so there is no right way to do it. But whatever you do, don’t turn your back on God, allow His great love for you to see you through this difficult time in your life.

Here are 10 Bible Verses to get you through this difficult time:

Philippians 2:20

“I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare.”

2 Corinthians 1:3 

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.”

Isaiah 41:10

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Revelation 21:4

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Matthew 5:4 

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”

Psalm 34:18

“The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

1 Peter 5:7

“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”

John 14:1

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me.

Psalm 147:3

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
