The Greatest Man that ever lived once made this bold proclamations: “I am THE WAY ~ THE TRUTH ~ and THE LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through Me. We can find this statement in The Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love in the Gospel of John ~ Chapter 14 ~ Verse 6. He helps us immensely when we face deep sorrow.

DO NOT SORROW ~ for the joy of the Lord is your strength.

Finding Rest In God

Without a doubt ~ we all face tests, trials, temptations, and tribulations. Keep in mind that ~ the Lord WILL NEVER ABANDON YOU. In addition ~ KNOW THIS: sometimes He uses the problems in your life to give you a ministry to others.

Peace can be found in serving others from a grateful heart.

Deep Sorrow Come Out of It Quickly

DO NOT SORROW ~ Why? Because sorrow steals your strength and

saps your energy ~ BUT ~ the joy of the Lord

is your strength.

He Bore Our Griefs And Carried Our Sorrows

To increase your faith ~ find a good church ~ where you can receive the teaching that

"He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows" ~ as found in the Old Testament Book of Isaiah in Chapter 53 and the New Testament Book of 1 Peter Chapter 2.

There is no reason for us to be ignorant ~ concerning those of our loved ones who have died in the Lord.

We should not: ~ SORROW AS OTHERS ~ who have no hope.

This admonition is found in Our Creator's Wonderful Book of Teaching on Life and Love in the Fourth Chapter of the New Testament Book of 1 Thessalonians.

Don't Sit Up Late Worrying

It is vain for us to ~ rise up early ~ to sit up late to eat ~ THE BREAD OF SORROWS ~

because ~ God gives His beloved sleep. You might say ~ but how can I not worry

with all of this working against me? The answer: Just Trust Him.

Comfort Others Who Are Grieving

Comfort and console those who mourn Give them ~ BEAUTY FOR ASHES . Help them to receive ~ THE OIL OF JOY for mourning ~ and ~ THE GARMENT OF PRAISE ~ for the spirit of heaviness.

Give them Flowers while they live.

Rejoice And Be Glad

Be still ~`and know that ~ Your Creator wants You to live an Abundant Life

So uplifting Helen, happy to see you again. I never lose hope in humanity and love for our own. Our Creator lends His hand through one of His creations and I have had personal experience many times and even today when a lady of limited means helped another who found herself in dire financial straits.

The beauty in life is we know what is the right way to live our lives, but we overlook the basics at our peril - rather we play with fire which also is growing in intensity - siva

Thanks ~ Stella. I too have had quite a few loved ones transition out of this life recently. I do believe the Lord gave me these words to pull me out of that state of extreme sadness I was in earlier this year ~ and ~ also hopefully to be a blessings to others.

Richest Blessings to you dear Stella..

A positive/powerful message about sorrow which I guess is different from grieving. Feeling sorry for too long about ourselves eats into our gratitude and joy as you say here.

nice message, Helen.
