    6. "God whispers to us in our pleasure, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts to us in our pain; it is His megaphone to a rouse a deaf world.“ C.S. Lewis

    7. 1 A good reputation is more valuable than costly perfume. And the day you die is better than the day you are born.2 Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties. After all, everyone dies— so the living should take this to heart.3 Sorrow is better than laughter, for sadness has a refining influence on us.4 A wise person thinks a lot about death, while a fool thinks only about having a good time. Eccl 7:1-4 (NLT)

    8. Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom. Psalms 90:12 (NLT)

    9. For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death. 2 Cor 7:10 (NLT)

    10. 3 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:3-5 (NLT)

    11. …for they will be comforted.

    12. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed. Psalms 34:18 (NLT) Comforted by God

    13. Comforted by God "You've never know if Jesus is all you need until Jesus is all you have. And when Jesus is all you have, then and only then will you discover that Jesus really is all you need."

    14. Comforted by God All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. 2 Cor 1:3 (NLT) Comforted by God

    15. "God will take care of you. I know, because He took care of me." Comforted by your brothers and sisters in Christ

    16. School of Suffering

    17. No one left behind
