Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die.”
However dear the person you have lost, you have not lost the memories you spun together. Neither have you lost the impact that person had on your life, the values you learned, and the interests you developed. What you have lost is a physical presence. As you do the hard work of grieving, you will begin to make peace with that loss and find comfort in your belief that the two of you are held together in the hands of God.
