God doesn’t want us to experience pain but he will use the pain of loss to help us experience him and his love. Isaiah says “All flesh is grass” which pretty clearly indicates everyone’s time is limited here on earth – in the flesh. But even before Isaiah gave us that bad news he told what God would do when we experience the effects of the world (death). He would speak “comfort” to us. He would provide” a way” out of the pain and struggle. He would send Jesus.
