Death brings to mind the old cliché “another one bites the dust.” Although crude in expression, the fact remains; when someone dies, they simply return to what they were created from-dust.
“…for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” (Genesis 3:19) “I am become like dust and ashes” (Job 30:19)
This week has been an emotional roller coaster of events. But most grievous of all was the demise of my cousin. At forty-eight, with his life still before him, he instead chose to end it.
Questions without answers, unrelenting grief, and unimaginable sorrow abound. But for those closest to him, guilt at missing signals of depression that could have saved his life must be dealt with, and understood. However, God alone holds the keys to heaven.
In the aftermath, and through it all, we still understand that God is a merciful God. He will never give us more than we can handle. Neither will He leave us alone to struggle with our grief.
Prayers for consolation, and peace that passes all understanding, are uplifted daily for those who struggle with grief.
