To die is gain.
We base our very life on that principle of death.
We wouldn’t waiver in our conviction that that is gospel truth. But when a loved one, a dear friend, suddenly passes from this life it can be one of the hardest truths to face.

How can a mortal loss, if truly gain, suck a Believer into an abyss of grief and depression?

It could be as practical as attending a local church, joining a Bible study, sharing about the Lord at work, or even considering a change in career. This internal conviction, with hours of thinking, re-thinking, praying and searching the scriptures, is part of understanding His work inside of us.

Many of us face the same frustration, idling in place, trying to figure out what God has for us in a worldwide pandemic. Can witnessing to neighbors, leading Bible studies online, showing mercy for the hurting and hungry without making face-to-face contact, or resting and praying be called missions?
