Comfort in a Time of Grief…Arlesia Cummings

I lost my mom yesterday morning. My heart is completely broken. I miss her. I want to talk to her. I want to laugh with her, and see her face. Words can’t describe how empty I feel. As a Christian I try to keep telling myself that she’s just sleeping. Those in Christ never die. We are just at rest. Even though I know this to be true, it still doesn’t take away from my pain. All these words are encouraging but at the end of the day I’m  just a girl that just wants her mommy.


Yes I may be grieving, but I realize that I’m not alone. Someone else just lost a loved one. Someone else has a broken heart. You see we as people have something in common…this thing called life. When you think you’re the only one going through something someone else is feeling that same pain. So my prayer this morning is not only for my family, but for everyone out there that has lost a loved one. I am praying for you. We’re going to make it through this. May God be with you.

Love you mommy, forever and always!

I leave you all with 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
