Trust in God’s love

How does one cope with the loss of a loved one? I had to face this challenge when I lost a close relative, whom I had lived with for many years and had companioned with on many joyous adventures. I was left alone in my home, without any immediate family close by, and I was wondering what was ahead of me for the rest of my life.

I had relied on Christian Science throughout my life to meet my needs, so I knew that, even though I was grieving, I could view this time as an opportunity to really trust and listen for God’s guidance. Often I was literally on my knees with soulful and sometimes tearful prayers, but I prayed daily to understand that God was the true source of provision for all my needs.
