No one can really know what you are experiencing in this very personal time of loss. Having lost close loved ones in death I too extend my sympathy to you. Soon all our dead loved ones will be raised in the resurrection. As Job stated at Job 14:14, 15 If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait, Until my relief comes. 15 You will call, and I myself shall answer. This is a time of sadness and, and it would seem that our pain cannot be comforted. Death indeed is the enemy of mankind but the resurrection that Jesus Christ has promised is something to look forward to. Life is indeed short. “It must quickly pass by, and away we fly,” perhaps in some 70 or 80 year and sometimes in much less time. Psalm 90:10. The Bible says that humans come and go like green grass, like a passing shadow, like an exhalation. But God did not purpose that we spend a few decades growing up and gaining some wisdom and experience, only to spend the next few decades breaking down and descending into illness and death. Our God Jehovah created humans with the desire to live forever. “Time indefinite he has put in their heart,” the Bible tells us. Is God cruel, giving us such a desire and then making it impossible to fulfill it? No, indeed, for “God is love.” 1 John 4:8. He will use the resurrection to make everlasting life possible for people who have died. I extend to you sincerest sympathy. When you feel able please see our website for more uplifting information on the resurrection hope. www.jw.org
