Anytime someone experiences the death of a loved one I begin to think, "how would I react if that was my parent, my aunt, my brother, etc?" and "what scripture would get me through that situation?" So I began a journey for scriptures referencing death. I finally found the two verses that seem so comforting to me. I know how painful it is to lose a loved one, but I can rejoice in knowing that mine are with the Lord!
If you have recently lost a loved one, I hope these 2 verses give you peace 💜
So we always have confidence. We know that while we live in this body, we are away from the Lord...So I say that we have confidence. And we really want to be away from this body and be at home with the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:6, 8 ERV)
