I am sorry that this made you cry, but may be if you would allow me to show you a couple more scriptures, your tears may be changed to tears of joy.
What will the earth be like when your friend is resurrected? Psalms 37:10, 11, 29
How will this all come about?
We pray for God’s Kingdom to come his will be done on earth – What is God’s Kingdom?
I would be happy to help you find answers to these and any other questions. You are the kind of friend I would like to have. Also thank you for your supporting words about the loss of my brother in law to cancer. Cancer is evil!
I would very much like to talk to you about your post on Saturday Sept. 1st, 2012. I too look for the "truth" from the Bible. I feel that we can trust what it says and even find a guide for our life. I am so sorry to hear you lost your best friend. First there are not many in this world who know what a "real" friend is and, therefore, loosing someone who was a "true" companion is a terrible thing.
"(Proverbs 17:17) A true companion is loving all the time, and is a brother that is born for when there is distress."
(Proverbs 18:24) "There exist companions disposed to break one another to pieces, but there exists a friend sticking closer than a brother."
What was your friend's name? I would love to know about your friend if you would like to talk.
Kim, how are you doing? It's been over a week that I lost my father and though my crying spells have lessened just a little bit every time I wake up I have to remind myself that my dad is gone and it kills me. I miss him so much it hurts so bad. I know how you feel and it sucks so much. Even though all of us have to go through this eventually the pain gets so bad that you think you're the only one in the universe going through it.
Kim, I too know the pain you are feeling. I lost my best friend, my soulmate, to cancer of the liver. She passed away on March 27, and I still feel like it was yesterday. I am so lost, I come home to an empty house. We did everything together and now I feel totally alone. She was my home, she gave me the security and safe feeling that no one has ever been able to do. Some times I can't breathe, I feel like a large part of me died with her.
"Martee, I am so sorry you are also in this hell. I really have no hopeful words to offer; for me, any meaningful life ended when my husband died. I didn't survive, my body just hasn't died yet. There is no joy in life anymore, for me.
"Re doing things we did together I was thinking more of making piecrust with my mom, or the right way to chop vegetables, or starting plants from cuttings, not anything like vacation travel. When my husband died several people, including…"
"Brenda, I think that people look too hard to find some thing very big. That something that makes you happy could just be a doughnut. When you are taking baby steps it's just a matter of getting from the chair to the couch.
That's what I…"
Nice to have your words and well wishes here. We all know this journey all too well. There are days u dread as well, and on those days we all have, we just need to be very gentle with ourselves. That's something I'm…"
"Re baby steps, one thing that has helped me is doing things that we did together, or learning to do things that she did. It might sound sad or even heartbreaking, to do those things alone, and if it feels that way it’s not the right…"
"Day by day. Minute by minute. Find something, anything that makes you happy and focus on it. For me it's my dog. When she is gone I will focus on something else. It could be anything.
If that doesn't work, do it for your mom. Carry on for…"
"For me it now has been three years ... three years and four months.
I survived first by distracting myself from it, thrust into work and no time to think, it would only come back at evenings and nights to haunt me ...
I guess what helped me was…"
"Bluebird, so sorry for you loss,your posts spoke my feelings exactly on grief and pain of living. Can you please let me know how you survived all these years.
Its been just over 2 weeks and each day is an eternity for me I hope I don’t…"
"it has been almost 6 years (my mom passed away on Feb 18, 2014) since my mom (56-year-old) passed way, it still feels like yesterday..I can't believe it..anyone here whos still here after all these years?"
"Brett, I am looking for the same light at the end of the tunnel. I feel the same way about my dog he is a Labrador and its so so difficult to see him limp or have a bad day, he takes meds, I just want him to be comfortable. I say to…"
"Brenda, I rely on my faith so much, but I realized a long time ago that there won't be a magic moment where an angel comes down and tells me that everything will be okay. I'm not criticizing God. I just realize that this is something that…"
"I'm having a lot of trouble getting Krissy to eat. She has diabetes and she has a very limited diet as it is. She can only eat prescription dog food. I switched to the wet version and she was eating up, and now it's the same as before. My…"
