Steps in Dealing
Take your time and read all
God, in His great love for us, has revealed
answers to some of the greatest questions we face: What is life? What
is death? What happens after death? We can find great comfort in the
knowledge that God has a plan for all of mankind and that death is a
temporary separation. We will be reunited with our loved ones through
the resurrections God has promised.
Ultimately this understanding can help us better
cope with a loss caused by death. Yet we cannot deny or diminish the
feeling of loss created by death. We still sorrow and grieve. How can
we deal with our grief? And how can we encourage others who are
Grief is a deeply personal and traumatic
experience. In dealing with grief, you may find it helpful to
understand the grieving process. Writers on the subject have identified
several stages of grief, including denial, anger, bargaining,
depression and acceptance. (For example, see the Dr. Elisabeth
Kübler-Ross model in On Death and Dying, New York, Macmillan,
We will briefly examine each stage to help you
understand grief and be prepared to deal with death. But bear in mind
that a person in mourning may not experience these stages sequentially.
No timetable for working one's way through grief exists. Someone may
feel several of the stages described here but not others. Another may
experience various stages simultaneously. Because one has gone through
one stage doesn't mean he or she can't return to it. Each person's
experience can be different.
Stages of grief:
When one experiences denial, his physical
responses might include sweating, faintness, nausea or a racing heart,
just as with any other victim of shock. The mind and emotions become
overwhelmed. Some simply may not be able to deal with the reality of
Some withdraw from the world around them. Others
may feel as though they must be having a bad dream and that they'll
soon awaken from it. Perhaps this is God's way of providing us a
protective buffer. It's during this time we can begin to sort out and
process our feelings at our own pace and comfort level.
Several important principles should be considered
at this stage of the grieving process. First, it helps to talk about
one's thoughts and feelings. Those who are grieving have been deeply
hurt by their loss. They need the opportunity to heal, to be taken care
of. They can help those around them to be of assistance by letting
those who want to help know what they are experiencing. You can help by
encouraging them to talk openly about their grief, to talk about the
circumstances surrounding the death of their loved one.
Encourage them to share the relationship they
enjoyed with their loved one, what it was that made that person
different, why they loved him or her. To cope with their grief, they
should feel free to talk from the heart, to share their feelings
regarding the loss they've suffered and the loneliness they are
At times like these the support of friends and
loving family is invaluable to those in distress. "A friend loves at
all times" (Proverbs 17:17), and "there is a friend who sticks closer
than a brother" (Proverbs 18:24). The day will come when they will be
happy to do the same for you. No matter how deep their sorrow, let them
know that they are not alone, that others have been there and will help
share the load if given the opportunity.
At such a time those who are grieving often lose
sight of the need to take care of themselves physically. Caring for
their health and well-being is often the last thing on their minds.
Help them to realize that they are important, that their lives are
During times of grief it is easy to grow
emotionally and physically depleted. Those who have suffered loss need
to watch their diet, avoid fast food and eat well-balanced and
Exercise, another must, is good for relieving
stress buildup and discharging anger and frustration. It helps the
appetite and promotes better sleep. Exercise can be as simple as a
20-minute walk several times a week.
Rest is yet another way to take care of one's
body. Grief is exhausting. Going without rest only compounds the
Stages of grief:
Once denial begins to wear off, our natural
tendency is to want to blame somebody-anybody-for our loss and pain.
This anger may not be rational. We might even find ourselves angry with
the deceased because of what the loss is doing to us. We may be angry
because of the timing of the death. When we are grieving, anger might
be vented toward authority figures-the doctor, the hospital staff,
family members or even God. We may wonder why God did not intervene in
the situation to prevent the death. This anger may also lead to
feelings of guilt.
Anger is a powerful emotion. It can lead to
negative behavior or be harnessed for our own benefit. Remember that
God says to "be angry, [but] do not sin" (Ephesians 4:26). We can take
the energy our anger generates and channel it into positive action. For
example, we can do those odd jobs around the house that we have been
putting off. Taking up a new hobby, or perhaps continuing our education
by enrolling in some evening classes, can help us positively channel
our emotions. An outstanding way to displace anger is to be of service
to others. Helping others will ease their burdens and lighten our
emotional load during our grieving.
Stages of grief:
In the bargaining stage some want to play let's
make a deal with God. They imagine that, if they promise to do this or
that, God will return things to the way they used to be. At this point,
those grieving often begin their pursuit of understanding of the death
of their loved one. This is a normal part of the healing process. They
come to realize that there is no bargaining with death. It is only
through acceptance of the facts that the reality of death can be turned
into hope and positive action.
In their pursuit of understanding, those who have
suffered loss should not leave out the source of information that has
the answers to the very questions they ask regarding death: God's Word,
As is emphasized throughout this booklet, God has
a plan. You and all of your loved ones are very much a part of it. God
doesn't want anyone to be overcome with sorrow or be without hope. With
those thoughts in mind, remember that the apostle Peter said to submit
to God, "casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you" (1 Peter
Stages of grief:
Reality eventually sets in. We are confronted with
the necessity to go on with life without the one we loved. It is easy
to begin to plague ourselves with the thoughts of what should have or
could have been.
For many, this can be the most difficult stage to
go through. Signs of depression include a feeling of melancholy,
unconcern about the outside world or a loss of interest in eating and
sleeping. Feelings of guilt, helplessness, hopelessness and
worthlessness are common.
During this stage we should remember the positive
aspects of the life we shared with our loved one. Memories are golden.
We will forever carry with us times spent and enjoyed with the one we
have lost. These are a treasure that nobody can take from us and are
part of the legacy our loved one left for us.
We need not ever walk alone in our grief. God is
still with us, even in times of mourning. "For He Himself has said, 'I
will never leave you nor forsake you.' So we may boldly say: The LORD
is my helper; I will not fear" (Hebrews 13:5-6).
At times like these we must remember to keep lines
of communication open with God. He can help us deal with grief. Ask Him
for strength and courage. "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne
of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of
need" (Hebrews 4:16). He is the "God of all comfort, who comforts us in
all our tribulation" (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).
Stages of grief:
Eventually, as we deal with our grief, we come to
understand and accept that we are beginning a new chapter in life. We
come to know a new normality. New realities must be adjusted to because
we are in a new situation. Because of the trial we are going through,
we become stronger, deeper and better for having faced and overcome
this great difficulty. Emotional balance returns little by little, like
the healing of a physical wound.
The time required for the healing process can be
different for each person. Some will still feel emotions such as guilt,
depression or anger. This isn't necessarily negative. It just means
that the loved one impacted their lives in a powerful way and is still
missed. These feelings are to be expected; they're normal.
No one can ever take the place of a loved one we
have lost. But we will come to the point to which we're ready to move
forward and meet new challenges.
Moses was a man beloved by the nation of Israel,
but there came a time when God allowed him to die. The nation had to
move forward even though the Israelites grieved for their beloved
leader. "After the death of Moses the servant of the LORD, it came to
pass that the LORD spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' assistant,
saying: 'Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this
Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to
them-the children of Israel'" (Joshua 1:1-2).
Life went on for Israel without one of its
greatest leaders. "No man shall be able to stand before you all the
days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will
not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage" (Joshua
God gives us the same promise today. We just need
to look to Him in faith. If we draw near to Him, just as He was near
Moses and Joshua, He will be with us. He is there to help us enter a
new phase of our life with new challenges. God will provide the same
strength and support He gave His faithful followers Moses and Joshua.
This, too, shall
Time is a great healer. This is especially true in
the case of the loss of a loved one.
In a speech before the Wisconsin State
Agricultural Society in 1859, Abraham Lincoln commented: "It is said an
Eastern monarch once charged his wise men to invent him a sentence to
be ever in view, and which should be true and appropriate at all times
and situations. They presented him with the words, 'And this, too,
shall pass away.' How much it expresses. How chastening in the hour of
pride. How consoling in the depths of affliction."
As bleak as life seems after the death of one we
love, we must remember that this, too, shall pass away. The joy of life
can return. With the help of God, with the understanding of His great
purpose for life, with the hope of the future, we can find the strength
to overcome grief.
Solomon wrote that "to everything there is a
season, a time for every purpose under heaven: . . .
a time to die; . . . and a time to heal;
. . . a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to
mourn, and a time to dance" (Ecclesiastes 3:1-4). Emotional healing
will occur. A time to sing, a time to laugh and a time to dance will
know God will richly bless you.
