I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of the Adams’ family. There's such a sense of helplessness when someone we love dies. Prayer is so valuable at this time but it's not that prayer simply makes us feel better. 2 Corinthians 4:7 says that God can give us, "... power beyond what is normal ", to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. The reason we recover is because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". Jesus was referring to the resurrection, this is our amazing hope that helps us recover and gives us power to go on. 2 Corinthians 1:3 describes our Creator as, "... the God of all comfort ". One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort (Psalms 83:18) be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.
