Give thanks to him, bless his name. For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. Psalm 100:4-5 NRSV

Thought

God is faithful to all generations. God has been there to comfort all who have grieved throughout the ages of time. God is with all who now grieve. God will be faithful to those you love who yet will grieve. You assure others of God’s faithfulness in the reflection of your spiritual maturity as a survivor. You have grieved and, at last, conquered grief through the power of God’s faithfulness.

Prayer

God, I give you thanks and bless your name for your goodness and faithfulness to me in grief. Amen.

Assurance

My experience of grief bears witness to the faithfulness of God.
