This book is about the loss of a loved one and how to be consoled.
Death treats everyone differently. But to some extent God works in the same way with all who believe. If you ask for his help, you’ll receive it. Unconditionally. You only need a spark of faith to reach out weakly to your Father. Then He strengthens that spark. Because God understands your sorrow.
This book is simply about how we, as a family, have experienced the death of our child and brother. Others may experience the death of a loved one differently. But we want to, and are certainly able to, bear testimony to God’s omnipotence, his deep empathy, His perfect love that has enfolded us daily. Also, we are able to testify in this manner because He made it possible for us to do so.
That is why we want to say with all our heart:
But God who comforts the downcast, comforted us [too].
2 Corinthians 7:6
And the most important discovery on our journey through sorrow is that God’s peace is always there for those who are searching for Him:
“... and I will give you rest.”
