I wanted to express heartfelt condolences to Tommy’s family. There’s such a sense of helplessness when someone we love dies. I’d like to share some scriptural thoughts that really helped me. Prayer is so valuable at a time like this, but its not that prayer simply makes us feel better. 2 Cor. 4:7 says that God can give us, “…power beyond what is normal “, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. The reason we recover is because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “…all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out”. Jesus was referring to the resurrection: this is our hope that helps us recover and gives us power to go on. Meditating on this promise can deeply affect our emotions and give us peace. 2 Cor. 1:3 describes our Creator as, “…the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May God (Ps. 83:18) grant you peace and comfort now during this time of sorrow.

I’m so sorry for your loss, and send my condolences. This is one of the hardest times in a family’s life, always know that others care. Most important God cares. He has promised a time when he will “swallow up death forever and he will wipe the tears from all faces.” (Isaiah 25:8) Praying for your family, and praying you will find comfort in this promise.
