Once we are born, there is one definite thing that will definitely happen to us. It may be now or later but it will happen.

Ladies and gentlemen, death is a mystery that humanity has failed to comprehend, let alone capture. Great confusion has arisen the world over with new heights of death statistics being recorded. Greetings loved ones. Greetings from Africa to the rest of the world.

India reported 6,148 C*vid-19 deaths, according to a health ministry report(R.F.I, 10 June 2021). The world over, every person has either been infected or affected by the scourge of the infection. Many of us have lost a beloved one through it and other means in this season. Today, let us look a how you can get over the loss of a loved one.

First and foremost we need to understand the process through which people in loss go through:

Shock and denial: “This can’t be happening to me.” This is a feeling of disbelief. You cannot fathom the idea that someone so close to you has died. After all, they have never died and you do not understand how that is possible and can be. You "know" that the person is "not" dead!

Anger: “Why is this happening? Who is to blame?” After a sense that the death may have happened, you cannot seem to understand why someone like that particularly close person dies.

Bargaining: “Make this not happen, and in return, I will ____.” This is the stage where, still, you believe that this is a dream and if possible you'd do anything to make that bad dream go away!

Sadness, Guilt, emptiness, and depression: “I’m too sad to do anything.” When it finally dawns that people may not be lying about the event, you get into a depressed state. It sinks in and you feel so helpless, there is no meaning to life, you regret not having had better times with the deceased, you feel life is unfair and the like. The guilt that maybe you could have done more, sets in. If people are not helped here they will move to the level of worship where whatever they do is about the deceased and they cannot seem to move on in their life. If helped from depression people move to the next level.

Acceptance: “I’m at peace with what happened.” People come to their senses that death is unescapable to all of us and while the pain of the death of a loved one can never be fully recovered from, there is still a life to live...LIFE GOES ON!

As I close, I would love for you to know that Jesus Christ is the only one who overcame death and also did the same feat for you and me if we believe in Him. Through Christ, death ceases to be the monster we imagined it to be but a lee-way to victory: "A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death than the day of birth." (Ecclesiastes 7:1)...For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. – Philippians 1:21 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.” – Revelation 14:13. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18...For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's. Romans 14:8

My dear if you are going through a difficult time recovering from the loss of a loved one, I and mama are praying for you. Always know that the Lord is close to you: "The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit." – Psalm 34:18
