To the family and friends of Mr Ferdie. I'm so very sorry for your loss. I know he was a person who enjoyed nature. We all need comfort in many areas of life. One of the greatest causes of grief is the loss of a loved one in death. You know even Jesus cried when his friend Lazarus died.
Jehovah God knows in times of distress, we may need comfort that soothes our heart, our mind, our emotions, and even our physical and spiritual health. Our heart can be “broken and crushed by such a lost. (Ps. 51:17) Jehovah is certainly able to help us deal with this situation, for “he is healing the brokenhearted ones, and is binding up their painful spots.” (Ps. 147:3) Even in severe situations, God can bring relief to a stricken heart if we pray to him in full faith and observe his commandments.—Read 1 John 3:19-22; 5:14, 15.
The Bible speaks of a promise at Rev 21:3-4 of a time when there will be no more tears, or pain or even mourning because death will be done away with. I look forward to this. You can too.
Again, I am so very sorry for your loss,
Michelle JohnsonOpelousas, LA
