My friends lost their son on a Sunday afternoon.  He was only 18 and getting ready to graduate from high school and go off to college.  His death was sudden and unexpected and from natural causes.

What can we say at a time like this?  How can we comfort them in an impossible situation?

This family has an intimate relationship with Jesus.  In times like this, only He can truly comfort.  As sad as we were, we have to trust Jesus with everything.  Words are beyond inadequate.

When David and Bathsheba lost their first child, David did something many wouldn’t understand.  In 2 Samuel 13 David fasted and prayed for God to save the stricken child, but when the Lord took the baby, David changed his clothes and worshiped.  When questioned, he answered, “I shall go to him, but he will not return to me.”(v23)  Gwen~
