This article is a companion post to the one about grieving with hope.

by Lisa Appelo

In deep grief, God’s word brings deep comfort. The Bible is living and active and meets the most broken and pain-filled places in our soul. “Within the Scripture there is balm for every wound, a salve for every sore,” Charles Spurgeon said.

Early in my grief, I was desperate for comfort only God could bring. Some Bible verses anchored me when my world turned upside down. Some verses reminded me of God’s truth when lies threatened to pull me under. And some Bible verses brought hope that, despite the cavernous loss and sadness, life would feel good again.

Psalm 119:92 says, “If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.” These 52 Bible verses to grieve with hope have been divided into subsections. In addition to these scriptures, get the Bible study 7 Days of Hope for Your Shattered Heart free here.
