I have known the agonizing sorrow of loss from the death of my wife and before that the loss of 3 children through miscarriage and accompanying grief that built with each successive loss. I know deep pain, yet even all that cannot compare with the crushing affliction my savior bore for me. His love is stronger than any pain as the God of all comfort, but also comes from the heart of the Man of sorrows who was acquainted with grief!
“When the mourning of loss is matched by faith in Jesus, there are fresh mercies with every dawn, all because we know what it means to look on the one who was pierced for us. In this, we have hope and promised help for our battle against sin and for the times when those we love are gone. In Christ, grief will not have the last word.” – Jason DeRouchie
