Someone you know and love has died. You feel the emptiness and sorrow of loss. That alone is extremely hard. But suicide adds many other painful reactions to the heartache that death brings. Common reactions are feelings of anger, guilt, betrayal, and many, many unanswerable questions.
This is one of life's broken, dark experiences in which you need help and encouragement to remember that the promises and presence of your God and Savior are real. In the midst of this darkness, David Powlison points you toward God who will be with you, uphold you, and help you live by faith through this tragedy.
