Grief is a long, painful process for those who have lost loved ones; they often feel numb and exhausted long after the funeral is over.
But they are assured of Godís comfort, as they are hurt, this shown in some Bible scriptures.
Psalms 9:9The lord is my shepherd, I shall not want; he makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside still waters, and he restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his nameís sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
How should we then comfort the bereaved?The lord is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
The bible refers the lord to be the shepherd, he leads us and guides us, and we should not then fear evil or death.
