7 Comforting Bible Verses for When You Are Grieving
The Bible says that there is a time and seasons for everything - a time to be born and a time to die... a time to weep and a time to life... a time to mourn and a time to dance. (Ecclesiastes 3)
When a loved one passes on, we are filled with grief and mourning. We hope you can turn to God's Word to find the ultimate comfort and strength to move on.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."
"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us."
"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
1 Corinthians 15:55-57
"Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?" The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
"Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God]; believe also in me. My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going."
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
