The testimony was taped and one of the church members then slipped the tape to this woman who had boarded herself up in her house. The woman took the tape into her bedroom. She listened to it over and over again all night along, literally until the sun broke at dawn. The Bible says that the truth will set you free and this is a perfect example of this biblical truth coming into full operation!

Her son is now in heaven and she should be looking forward to being reunited with him in heaven once she crosses over — not dwelling on his death, which was now in her past. Once she fully grasped what God was trying to tell her, and it apparently took all night for this revelation to really sink into her mind, she was finally set free and was able to start fully living again.

Clear Signs A Deceased Loved One Is Close by

This couple said that these specific words spoken to them by the Holy Spirit has helped many other people deal with the death of their close loved ones. Here are 3 good verses from Scripture that will back up the words spoken to this couple by the Holy Spirit. And one of the things ahead for this couple in their futures will be their own physical deaths and their own crossing over into heaven and being reunited with their daughter, where they will never be separated from her ever again! This verse is telling us that each one of us should continue to plow for God with whatever time we still have left down here on this earth — with the understanding that we will eventually be reunited with all of our saved loved ones who have gone home before us.

And not only should we continue to plow forward with this hope in mind, but we should also be a partaker of that hope. In other words, really believe that when you die, you will be reunited with all of your saved loved ones, and this time it will be for good — for all of eternity! Heaven is going to be the final and ultimate reward for all Christians. The Bible tells us that we cannot even begin to imagine all of the good things that God will have in store for all of those who will be entering into His dwelling place.

But one thing we do know for sure — we will all be given the two greatest rewards any human can ever hope to receive once we cross over to the other side. And to top it all off, there will be mansions and who knows what else from God the Father. So many people have lost the rest of their earthly lives because they could never get over the death of a close loved one.

The Holy Spirit gave this couple what I feel is a very powerful and liberating Word on this subject. He gave them a Word that was pure, solid, God-truth. And once you receive a direct truth from God the Father — it will set you free if you are willing to accept it and then work with it. After receiving the above Word from the Lord, they were then told to put all of her pictures back in with the rest of the family pictures.

He told them that she was not dead — that she was fully alive in heaven — and that they should all be rejoicing because their time would come when they would all be reunited with her once again. They were told not to try and put her out of their memory. They were to keep intact all of her photos and all of their memories of her. They were all to look forward to the future when they would once again be reunited with her in heaven. When this couple received all of the above from God the Father through the Holy Spirit, they were then all set free from the mental captivity they had placed themselves under, and they were then able to pick themselves back up and get back into fully living in their present again.

The other revelation that the wife received from God the Father was on the question as to why — why did God allow her daughter to be taken home so early? God basically told her there will be times when He will not tell you why He allows something specific to happen in your life, like the early death and departure of a close loved one. Sometimes it may be better that you not know why God brings someone home so early. Maybe that person was going to have something really bad happen to them somewhere down the road and God wanted to spare them the pain of having to go through it — so He arranges to have them brought home early.

There could be many different reasons as to why God may have brought this person home early, and maybe with half of those reasons you are better off not knowing. God will answer many of our questions if He is properly approached. But when God does decide not to answer a specific question you may have, then you have to accept the fact that He has a good enough reason not to give you His answer, trust that He knows what He is doing and what is best for the situation at hand — and then move on with the rest of your life.

For those of you who have had a very difficult time in accepting the death of a close loved one, really chew on the above Word given to this couple by the Holy Spirit. Their close loved one is now in the most perfect place imaginable and they will be reunited with them once again in just a very short period of time. This life on this earth is just for a very brief moment in the eternal scheme of things — but the life to come, where they are at now, will be forever. To Whom it may concern, I am so grateful for the powerful words of the testimony from two powerful messages from God.

Thank you for helping me to see my daughter death from a different angle. His words help me to see that the path I must travel just got easier. As I write this testimony it is with a deep profound love for God. I will move forward with my life with grace because I have a future to face. Reuniting with my daughter again. Thank you for this message from god. Sincerely Crystal Robbins mother. Crystal born August 28, pasted March 28, I am a worshiper in church and I am in church every week and I do it because I love the Lord and I know that he has called me and save me through his grace and love.

I love what i do for God. My sibling was only 18 years old. Thankfully he was not into drugs and did not have an evil heart, he always had a great heart. But unfortunately and very painfully that did not come to pass because he passed away in this car accident.

I really refuse to believe that God would leave me here suffering and wondering if my brother is in his presence and that we will meet again knowing what I had planned for my sibling in the future to know Jesus. I know that the God I serve and love is a God of love mercy and grace, and have believed that the same mercy and grace and love that i have over me, extended as if i were a portal over the life and spirit of my brother. I would appreciate any feedback and spirit guided words about this because i have been battling with this a lot. I lost my son over two years ago.

He was I have cried every day since his death. I understand what this article says. But it is so hard. What can I do? I too lost my son in , he was 29, He left behind 3 beautiful children. He was shot by a stranger while trying to get a gun away from his younger brother who was a heroin addict. One month before this happened I took my mother in because my sister was going to put her in a home. Also, my grandchildrens mother pretty much lost it so me and my daughters were taking care of my 3 grandbabies and my mother.

My twin girls worked while I took care of everything else. Eventually, their mother did better but not one of her family help her except us. In November , my mother broke her hip and one of my twins had to stop working to help me take care of her. She was now bed ridden and it was aweful. She died in March. We had also taken in my sister who got a divorce and had her granddaughter to take care of.

She moved out when mom died because we no longer had enough money to take care of her and her granddaughter. Now that everyone is gone except me and my girls, things are finally surfacing. The man that murdered my son was released on self defense laws. It has been aweful….. I too cry every night. I go no where and hide away from friends and the world. I am pretty sure I will see my son again as he was Baptized at a young age and was a good person, but the guilt I carry with me is what I struggle with. The choses I made in my life that may have change the outcome.

Yes I miss him, he was always the one to tell me everything is going to be alright. I am seeking counseling for the 1st time since he died in Maybe it will help …I hope so. I am a different person …I am not that funloving…life always turns out…god is always wat ching over me kind of person anymore. I hope to see that person again some day…So hang in there, I understand the tears…. I am luckier than most that I have 3 small pieces of him with me. May God give you comfort,. And the worst guilt is when we were waiting to find out if my sons were ok.. I never once prayed to god.

I just thought because I always believed that this kind of thing could never happen to me…that they would be ok. I never pray and asked god to save my sons. Three years ago, my mother passed away and the pain is still very much alive, but I started to accept and not be so angry at God for it. This is my grandmothers last child to pass away.

Gaster Sharpley Helps with Grief of Death in WHEN YOU'RE GONE

I know there are not answers that we in our human sense can understand why God took them home, But, I see miracles in my grandson every day by the light of His love. Dear Bridgette, I am so sorry for your loss. I also am beside myself with grief. I have to pray myself out of bed. My 21 year old son died instantly in a car accident on Jan 31st, I have cried everyday since. I know my son is in heaven. My phone is silent. I am in despair. But i know that God is a good God. I hope that you feel his comfort. My 43 yr old husband died 20 days ago in motorcycle wreck, he most likely had a heart attack while driving.

I am trying to look at the 3 yrs i got as a gift from god and not question his will, but i am in such physical and mental pain i cant. My husband was not perfect he had several issues such as drinking to much alcohol even after god gave him a second chance at life with me and the kids he continued to battle the demons of addiction even though he knew it was killing him … but i know for sure he was a firm believer in the Lord and his son Jesus Christ.

I need to find peace with god for me and my kids. If your husband accepted Christ as his Savior he is saved. Believers battle demons all the time. Battling demons is not a sin. Jesus battled Demons. Thank you Jim for your reply I too lost my daughter and she was in a similar situation and I worried and what you said makes sense…She was a christian but had demons attacking her everyday in her living situation. She passed away Oct 21, of a sudden heartache.

I am still working my way through trying to understand why. She was trying to overcome alcohol. She loved the Lord. Your words have comforted me. Thank you Connie. Praying for you sweetheart. I just wanted to give you my testimony. I lost my Mom going on 14 years next month in March on the 9th. My Mother and I did not get along my whole life.

She used to tell me that she wished I had either died at birth, or she wished she had had an abortion with me. I was the only daughter out of five of us girls that I felt like she absolutely hated. I thought it had been my husband at the time saying something to me. I heard the same voice and the same message three times.

The Third time I heard it, I knew it was the Lord. I went to see my Mother, and after spending three days with my Mom, the Lord told me she was going to die the next morning. I tried to tell her three times, but it came out in a different language that neither she nor my husband could understand. God has told me that it was for me to know only, not my Mother or any one else in that household that night. He was preparing me for what was to come. The very next morning, my Mother died as she walked into the hospital to pick up my dad, as he was slowly dying himself, and the hospital was sending him home.

My mother had collapsed on the floor and 10 minutes later, she was in the Arms of Jesus. Those three days that I had with my mother were a wonderful gift to me from God because those three days were the best three days of my entire life with my Mom. I was given a glimpse of what was to come for her and I in Heaven as a relationship. I Thank God for giving me those three days. The pain is still there and it always will be until I too, am in Heaven, and I still miss her more then anything, but I am SO thankful I got to spend those last three days with my Mom.

They were most definitely A Very Special Gift to me. May the Lord continue to comfort you and may He give you peace, comfort and understanding that only He can give. Yes yet if someone dies and you know they were not saved then sorry they r not in heaven. That it why it is so important for Believers to spread the gospel and pray that others come to Christ too, get saved.

Also there r real demons that torment and hinder here right now on Earth. Amy, your husband believed, yes I truly believe he is in heaven with his Savior… John Believers are forever His, God says so and it is true. God never says anywhere in His Word that any of us will never struggle with sin when we believe in Him.

Quite the opposite, as the devil wants us to doubt our salvation when we sin, which could lead us to stop trusting in Our Father God and the grace through His Only Son Jesus. It is NOT by any works trying to be good enough that we have salvation, it is through grace alone by our faith which is given to us by God himself. It is through our faith that causes us to desire to please God, but on this earth there is no such thing as being without sin. Jesus paid the price for our sins. Blessings and may His peace and truth rest in your heart.

In the bible the book of Revelation says no one is in heaven or hell!! The bible says when God comes back that will be judgement day!! Everyone will go before him and be judged. Either you go to heaven or you go to hell!! When a loved one dies people always say Heaven gained another angel!! Keep up!!

16 Tips for Continuing Bonds with People We’ve Lost

There is Scripture that Proves it many many times. John I am helped by the revelation from the Holy Spirit to the hurting mother on the loss of her loved daughter. Also 20 years ago I Iost my daughter at The pain has been overwhelming. Without His help my life would just collapse. Many occasions excruciating pain wakes me up in the middle of the night. I plead with the Lord to hold my to help me stand and I get some peace enough to catch a sleep.

I also ask God for a assistance that I may not blame Him. The loss of a loved one is a painful deep wound that Yehova God soothes and binds. He assures us that His is close the brokenhearted and heals the hurting spirit. May He give us the strength to wait up on Him.

Everyday Power

I lost my son in a drowning on June. All day long the holy spirit impressed pain me that something was wrong, I had a heavy feeling that day that something bad was about to happen. I have back problems so I was on pain meds. I believe if he did my son maybe would not have died or I would have been instructed him not to go or would have had peace about it. He had just turned 18 on may 11 of this year. We all live with guilt and regret. Allow Jesus to heal your heart to help you keep moving on. I knew my boyfriend died before hearing the news.

Ephesians — armor of God. During my grief, I was under attack too. My pastor taught me this. I hope it helps! Michael, My Son whose name was also Michael, died 10 yrs ago at age 22 in a motor cycle accident. My family plays the same type things over in their minds that they could have somehow prevented that tragedy, or they were somehow responsible for his fate.

The first point I would like to make is that as heavy as that loss was on your heart that day, and as as surprised as you were by it, God was not surprised. Only the Lord determines our days here on earth so I had to learn to trust that the Lord had a greater plan for both my son, and for me and my suffering. My sons death was determined within a split second of time. He was on a motorcycle when a car ran a red light in front of him. He has less than a second to respond. He T-boned the rear passenger door of a PT cruiser. Later I became aware there was a passenger in the front seat of that vehicle.

The Lord highlighted for me how many different outcomes could have happened within that split second.

  • My son could have missed that vehicle completely, he could have hit the passenger door in the front seat and that boy may have lost his life that day also. My son may have sustained injuries that were not life threatening. But none of those things happened. What did happen was that my son sustained injuries that cost him his life, and the passenger walked without a scratch. Just like the situation with your son, The Lord was in control and nothing would have changed his outcome on the tragic day. My struggle like yours is more about my failure to keep my son safe, and the lack of understanding as to why God allowed my son to die that day.

    I know you understand the finality of the loss you just suffered. Sadly, a loss of that level is traumatic and it will take a long time to grieve it, accept it, and it will likely take the rest of your life to heal from it. You will never stop loving or missing your child and that is okay. You will however learn to live your life again slowly. There is no other pain like the loss of a child, but there is also no greater love than the love of Christ as he carrys you through this season.

    The Lord continues to carry me and strengthen me as I continue to mourn my Son. I may not grieve as I did when I first lost him, but I do continue to grieve unexpectedly. What I have gained as a true blessing is a faith in the Lord that continues to change my heart and complete me. Their is no timeline on your grief so just go one day at a time. The Lord continues to reveal things to me to help me better understand his Love for me and I as m confident he will fo the same for you. Keep your eyes open and ask the Lord for clarity and understanding. The lord will not waste your suffering and he will work it together for your good.

    I dont expect to ever fully understand why God chose to bring my son home that fateful day, but I do trust that when I go home, my Son will be there, and God will reveal to me all he has done through that tragic loss. Until then, I will continue to trust the Lord to strengthen me when I am weak, comfort me when I am sad, and grow me closer to him through the rest of this journey. I am so sorry for your loss. It takes a lot more energy then we often have strength to give to endure such loss. Do the best you can to channel your energy into the Lord and he will heal your heart and bring you peace.

    My brother in law was victim of a homicide thirteen months later my nephew became a victim I am trying to keep my faith I keep questioning god why why why?

    Praise the Lord…. God is good He is with us.. I lost my husband June this year. I look forward to that reunion in Heaven with him one day. Yes, its still very hard without him here by my side, but knowing hes now healed and suffers no more is of great comfort! I am so very sorry. I will be praying for you, I promise I lost my son July 3, He was only 27 years old. Hid birthday is Feb 23, a day after mine.

    I am working through my journey of grief. Let do it for our boys.

    They will be so proud of us. Love you. The first story about the couple that lost a girl reminded me of myself. When my son died I was unconscionable. I was in a terrible depressed state. I ended up having a nervous break down. I wanted to kill myself. I believed that I would never feel better because my son will still be gone. Anyway, after the nervous break down I didnt feel much better, every day I was depressed, but I found a religious meeting that helped me a lot. Then I found a good church, and slowly I was able to feel better.

    Then I got on the right anti-depressants, and I felt the best. Well it is a long story but I will try to make it short. A friend on his death bed asked God to help him believe and he got up and walked. The hospital took a film of him, and people were asking for his autograph. Many people suffer from a loss of appetite after losing a loved one or have an erratic, somewhat unhealthy eating schedule.

    However, strive for a healthy and well-balanced diet after losing someone. Eating quality foods, like fruits and vegetables, can help regulate your mood. When you're grieving, these can sometimes be forgotten. Remember to brush your teeth twice a day, shower regularly, and try to get some exercise. Some self care rituals will inevitably slip during the grieving process.

    However, try to keep up as best you can given the situation. Simply caring for yourself can help with your emotional wellbeing. Avoid numbing the pain. Alcohol and drug use can be tempting after grief. It can help numb the pain. However, you are at higher risk to develop a substance abuse problem when you're grieving. It can also be bad for your emotional health to avoid addressing your grief. Try to avoid drinking and drug use in the months after losing a loved one.

    Much like your diet, maintaining a solid sleep schedule is important in regulating your emotions. When you're going through a traumatic experience, it's important you make sleep a priority. Strive for 7 to 8 hours of high quality sleep each night. If you have prolonged difficulty sleeping, talk to your doctor about temporarily trying a medication to help regulate your sleep cycle.

    Maintain a schedule. It may be very difficult to maintain a regular schedule after losing a loved one. However, having some semblance of normalcy during your grief can provide comfort. A simple routine can help ground you and help you deal with negative emotions. Things like eating, sleeping, and exercise are important to incorporate in a routine. Make sure you make time for those basic needs. Many people isolate themselves after a loss. However, you need support from those who care about you to move forward.

    Method 3. Let people know what isn't helping. You will get a lot of sympathy, advice, and feedback when you're grieving. Unfortunately, not all of it is helpful. People are rarely trying to be hurtful or insensitive when they say the wrong thing. They may simply be unsure of how to help. It's appropriate to respectfully let people know when they're not being helpful. You can also tell them how they can better help you cope with your grief. People sometimes inadvertently say things that come off as hurtful or insensitive to the bereaved. For example, a friend may say something like, "Be grateful for the time you had.

    You can try gently saying to your friend, "I really appreciate that you're trying to help, but my cousin died very young. Being reminded of the time I had, which wasn't very much, just makes me feel angry. Could you please not bring that up anymore? Most people genuinely want to help. Even if they're saying the wrong thing, it's because they care. Letting them know what does and does not help will allow them to better assist you.

    For example, you could say to that friend, "The next time you want to help, maybe just ask me how I'm feeling and let me express it without offering any advice. Sometimes, I just need to vent. Join a support group. Some people find support groups very helpful when dealing with a personal loss. Talking to others who've been through the same experiences can provide you with insight on how to cope. You can see if there are any support groups at hospitals or counseling centers in your area. If you can't find anything close by, consider an online support group.

    Recognize when you need psychological care. It's normal to feel sad after losing a loved one. However, sometimes grief can spiral into depression. You should seek psychological care if you experience any of the following: Your emotions are so intense you are unable to cope with day-to-day life Your have difficulty sleeping Your personal relationships are suffering Your professional life is suffering You're having sexual problems or becoming accident-prone [16]. Find a therapist. If you're experiencing symptoms of prolonged grief, make an appointment with a therapist.

    You can find a therapist by talking to your insurance provider or asking for a referral from your regular physician. If you're a student, you may be entitled to free counseling from your college or university. First, don't expect that to immediately happen.

    It takes time, and accepting your feelings can help a lot. Try not to feel so guilty about being depressed over it, especially if it was recent. Healing takes time and acceptance is key. Seeing a therapist would be a good idea. Yes No. Not Helpful 0 Helpful You owe it to yourself to be as happy as this life permits you to be. Life is meaningless without happiness. Tell yourself that the person you lost wouldn't want you to be miserable for his or her sake. Not Helpful 2 Helpful It's been about a year since the passing away of my great-grandmother, but I still randomly burst into tears sometimes when I think of her.

    How can I prevent this? You might not be able to "prevent it", but that's okay. You never truly get over the death of a loved one, especially if the two of you were close. Just try to think of all the fun times you had together, and remember that she still loves you, no matter where she is. Not Helpful 3 Helpful Just excuse yourself from the room and maybe go to the bathroom to calm down. People will understand that you're still grieving. Wear something suitable - clean, pressed, not revealing and not distracting. Bring tissues and rely on your friends and family to help get you through it.

    Not Helpful 1 Helpful How do l ever get over losing my mum and brother in such a short time? It takes time to recover. It helps to distract yourself: treat yourself to a movie, that new store you've always wanted to check out, etc. Talk to someone close to you: family, a significant other, a member of the clergy, or a therapist or counselor. Last but not least, mourning: allow yourself time to grieve; cry and let it all out. Not Helpful 4 Helpful Watch a favorite movie or video, or anything that makes you smile.

    Be with friends, and tell them about your depression. Read your favorite books, or go on a walk. You could go to a park, sit on a bench and enjoy the weather. Listen to your favorite music, or some positive music. You have to accept that there's only so much that you, as a human being, can do. Acknowledge that you did do your best, and remember the good times with your loved one.

    Not Helpful 5 Helpful I lost my grandmother yesterday. She died in her reclining chair at home in her sleep. She was like my second mom. How do I deal with the loss? Sadie Just. It is extremely difficult to lose someone in the family, especially when you share a strong bond. It's not going to be easy. Accept that grief is going to come and instead of avoiding it, live the sadness. Watch yourself and try to meditate in your sadness.

    Cry, shout, do whatever you feel to express it. Don't hold back.
