Loving Lord I am filled with grief and sadness at the loss of my precious loved one – and yet that pain is tinged with gold, knowing that they trusted you as their Saviour and that they are now in Your presence.
I know that I am going to miss this precious one, who has been my strength and my joy for so long, and thank You for the precious times we had together.
Often Lord I expect my dear one to just be there, or walk through the door - and then remember that they have gone home to be with You. At times this is quite hard and yet I know that I must not grieve as those that have not hope in Jesus – but rejoice knowing that the day is coming when we will be together with You and You will wipe away all tears from our eyes - but at the moment my loss is like an open wound – and I pray that You will heal my brokenness and the loneliness I feel… and draw me every closer into Your arms of love my Lord and my God.
Thank You for all You are to me and may I rest in You in Jesus name,

“To the one we are
the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is
sufficient for these things?”
“Precious in the sight of the LORD is
the death of his saints.”
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.”
“Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:”
“Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and
not that he should return from his ways, and live?”
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
“If any man see his brother sin a sin which is
not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.”
“Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.”
