God will sustain you with his "right hand of righteousness" during this difficult time and through each passing day. Isaiah 41:10 says:.."I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness." Isaiah 41:13; I "am grasping your right hand, the One [God] saying to you,..."i will help you.'" Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you! Psalm 36:7; 1 Peter 5:7)
