"My condolences. During this difficult time, God's promises can help to comfort you and give you a hope of better things to come. He promises to "swallow up death forever."(Isaiah 25:8) And he offers you the hope of seeing your loved one again. Acts 24:15 says:"There is going to be a resurrection." While you meditate on these promises, "throw all your anxiety on God because he cares for you.(1 Peter 5:7)
