Justin

I don’t know why, but ever since my grandpa died in January and my uncle last April, I have been going down hill. All I want to do is cry every day, but I just can’t get it out. I don’t understand why I’m not over their deaths. I try not to think about it, but I can’t help it. All I want to do is cry. I love them so much, and I just wish they were both here. My realationship with God is going down the drain, and I wish sometimes I wasn’t even born. I’ve tried praying and going to church, but every time I do pray I feel like I am talking to myself. And when I try and go to church, I walk out because I can’t stand even listening to the pastor. I just don’t understand why I am having such a hard time coping with their death. I just wish they were here right now so I can tell them one last time that I love them. I don’t know what to do anymore. :`(  So please pray for me, :`(

    My dear Justin: You sound very young. And also you sound very, very sad. You know, my young friend, God gives us time to grieve; and we need to sit back and listen, get personal, and ask Our Lord Jesus Christ to help us. Sometimes a nice park, walking and smelling the grass, listening to the birds, and just being still and listening. Your loved ones must have been very close to you, and they would want you to go on with your life, and maybe with this experience of grieving, help someone else who is in your shoes. There are many support groups you can join; call your local hospital, and they will help you to find a proper one. I have been through many such sad times, though I am much much older than you; but I know that we have to trust God … to let go and “let God.” Blessings, and prayers. Mrs M..

    Don’t be too hard on yourself. Turn your grief over to Jesus, and let him carry you through your sadness. Read Ecclesiastes 3 — it is your time to weep, let it happen and know it is natural. You are not alone. I lost my father in August and my uncle (his brother) two months later. I am still in the ‘process’ of grieving — note, it is a ‘process,’ not an illness you ‘get over’). Recently, I’ve had dreams of my father and I take these as a sign that he is alive through Christ. So, when I pray ‘thy will be done, on earth, as it is in heaven,” I feel a sense of closeness to my Dad, and I tell him I love him every time I pray the Lord’s Prayer. Prayers and blessing are with you in your sadness now.

    Justin, I really relate your problems. My grandma passed away when I was in fifth grade, and I was very overwhelmed. She really meant alot to me. I know how you feel. It took me a long time to get over it, so don’t feel bad. Sometimes I still miss her. It’s okay to cry and get your feelings out. It ‘s okay to grieve, however long it takes. Don’t feel bad because you haven’t gotten over it yet–everybody handles the death of a loved one a little differently and mourns in their own way and time. Take all the time you need, and remember that God is here to help and comfort you. I really feel for you, and it makes me want to cry because I understand the hurt you feel. Please, reach out to God even when it’s tough. Keep praying; God hears your prayers. God placed you on this earth for a reason, Justin. Trust Him. When you don’t know what to do, just cry out to God. You don’t always have to talk to God, you can just cry. He understands your tears. He cares about you. Just go to God when you hurt. He always has time. May God comfort you.
