“As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; in Jerusalem you will be comforted.” -Isaiah 66:13

I went to pick up the phone and call you but then I realized, you won’t answer.

I miss your smile and all the good times we shared.

You loved your family and we loved you too.

It’ going to be hard to tell you goodbye.

You were always the life of the party and now your supping with Jesus.

At least now you are free from the troubles that this world brings.

Now you get to rest and get your reward.

It hard to describe how I feel so I just say I’m numb.

Rest is hard to come by.

Food has no taste.

It’s like we’re on auto-pilot and are trying to get through our grief.

Then I realize that God is here to give us comfort.

He promised to never leave nor forsake us.

One day our pain will be replaced love and peace.

One day our hurt will be healed by the love of God.

Until that day comes we are still numb.

Oh, Great Comforter, console us in our grief.

Help us find peace in you.

Give us hope in these dark days.

Until then oh, God we are numb.
