Why, O Lord?

Psalm 39:12
“Hear my prayer, O LORD, listen to my cry for help; be not deaf to my weeping.”

Psalm 130: 1-2
“Out of the depths I cry to you, O LORD; O Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.”

Help me find my way out. What have I done? Help me to understand. I beg of you, what is my purpose now?

  1. I personally do not know the feeling of losing a child but I will share with you what I have learned from the Bible with regard to our loved ones who have passed. Many say when children die that God needed another angel. But really does that make sense knowing that God has “myriads of angels”? (Hebrews 12:22) No, rather we learn that because of inherited imperfect and sin we die. (Romans 5:12) Also too, “unforeseen occurrence befall us all” (Ecclesiastes 9:11). However, God so lovingly sent his son, Jesus, to die and in essence buy back what Adam lost for us. (Romans 5:17, 19) So now he have have the prospect of living forever and welcoming back our loved ones who have passed. John 5:28, 29 says that “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs (graves) will hear [Jesus] voice and come out.”
    They will then be able to live forever as well for Psalm 37:29 says “the righteous themselves will possess the earth, and reside forever upon it.” Isaiah 45:18 says that Jehovah God “did not create [the earth] simply for nothing,” but “formed it even to be inhabited.”
    The Bible goes on to say that the conditions of the earth will be different. Psalm 37:9, 10 tells us that wicked and evil people will be done away with. Isaiah 33:24 says that sickness will be no more. Micah 4:4 tells us that no one will there to make one tremble. And Revelation 21:4 says that God “will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
    Other scriptures tell us how we can be apart of this at John 3:16 and 17:3.
    I don’t know if this will bring you any comfort but I hope it does. Until that day we can welcome back our loved ones who have passed, grieving is ok and no one can tell you how you should do so. So take all the time you need. Please, please continue to do what you are doing by studying the scriptures for they provide comfort because they are coming from Almighty God the one that created us and knows us best. (Romans 15:4; 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4; Psalm 55:22)
