Just Keep Living

After attending the funeral of a dear uncle and saw how his wife, son, daughters, friends, and neighbors grieved his loss, I began to think of a very a powerful and one of the shortest scripture verses, Jesus Wept (John 11:35)

Oh how Jesus felt when he saw the hurt and pain that death causes his people. Although Jesus knew he had the power to deal with whatever death touched, in this instance Lazarus, and that he will grant power to his followers to raise the dead, he understood that death will continue to run rapid until its authority will be taken at the second coming of Christ.

So what do we do in the meantime? How do we deal with this great enemy? We shed tears with those that have lost loved ones, just as Jesus did. Many times we take on such a deep posture, but beloved, this is not the time for the super spiritual, but to have compassion and understanding. We continue to encourage others that death is only a transition and those that accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior shall live again. We also keep living; death will surely bring along his big brother fear however we cannot allow fear to stop us from living again.

Weeping may endure for a night, but joy will come in the morning. We are going to cry, but we must keep living.

Thank you for this article Grace, your comments are so very true. There are times when it is right for grief to be expressed and sympathy to be accorded. This is what Jesus did, not because he was weak and emotional but because he has great compassion and deeply cares for each of us. Believers need to survive moments of bereavement and do as the Bible says, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." (1 Peter 5:7) The tone of this article tells me that you deeply care as well and I commend you and your ministry. Blessings.
