Love your families today, tomorrow is not promised

Trust in God’s ultimate justice. Leave it up to God to judge the situation.

It’s ok to feel overwhelmed with grief. Jesus felt grief too. When his friend Lazarus died, Jesus cried.

Mary arrived where Jesus was, and as soon as she saw him, she fell at his feet. “Lord,” she said, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died!” Jesus saw her weeping, and he saw how the people with her were weeping also; his heart was touched, and he was deeply moved. “Where have you buried him?” he asked them. 
“Come and see, Lord,” they answered. 
Jesus wept. — John 11:32-35⭐

God knows that there will be times in our lives when we feel pain deep in our hearts.

Everything that happens in this world happens at the time God chooses. He sets the time for sorrow and the time for joy, the time for mourning and the time for dancing. — Ecclesiastes 3:1,4⭐

But God doesn’t just sit with us in our heartache—he offers us hope. Jesus asks us to give our burdens to him. He will carry our pain for us.

Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light. — Matthew 11:28-30⭐
