    I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible describes death as an enemy. How true that is, for death robs us of the ones we love. Despite the pain brought about by the the loss of a loved one there is hope. “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) Jehovah God promises to bring those who have died back to life. They will have the prospect of living forever in paradise on earth. We can have confidence in this promise because God “cannot lie.” (Titus 1:2) May this hope bring your hearts some comfort at the difficult time.

    We're so sorry about your loss. Please find comfort from the words found at 1 Corinthians 1:3, 4 which reads: "3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials" Yes, we can ask for help and rely on God. He also has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise. (Acts 24:15; Psalms 37:9-11, 29). Be confident that this is SURE to happen because Isaiah 55:11 ensures us of this. Find out more online at JW.ORG
