Losing a loved one is never easy, and the grieving process is different for everyone.
If you’ve lost your husband, it’s normal to wonder, “can my husband see me from heaven?”
We all want to think – and believe – that those closest to us are still with us or can see us after they’ve passed.
Here is what we know about what our spouses and loved ones can see and do from heaven according to the bible:
Can My Husband See Me From Heaven?
This question is open to interpretation to some extent, but the general belief is that, yes, our loved ones may still see and know what’s going on down here on earth.
There is a quote in (Hebrews 12:1) that states, “Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses… let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”
My interpretation of this is that our loved ones do have some sort of connection or a way of seeing us from heaven.
This may even go some way to explaining some of the spiritual links some of us experience that leads us to believe that we’re being watched over or protected.
What I will say is that obviously, we do not know for sure. But don’t let that stop you from believing what you believe in.
Also, if you feel or see some kind of sign that leads you to believe that your husband is able to see you, take that as a sign that he can see you and wants the best for you.
Sometimes it helps to talk to a loved one that we’ve lost, too. I know this was crucial in my grieving process.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your husband and ask for a sign that he can see you. Equally, don’t be disappointed if you don’t get one – it doesn’t mean he’s not watching or hearing you.
Do You Reunite With Your Spouse in Heaven?
The idea of being reunited with our spouse in heaven is a comforting one.
But, again, the bible does not give us a definite answer on this.
A lot of Christians refer to a passage from (Matthew 22:30), when searching for an answer to this question.
There is a quote that says, “At the resurrection, people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.”
However, there are some who believe that we will be reunited with our loved ones in heaven.
And there are others who believe that once we die, we move on to our own, separate afterlife.
The truth is, we don’t know for sure. But that doesn’t mean that the idea of being reunited with our husband in heaven isn’t a comforting one.
No matter what you believe, the important thing is that you allow yourself to grieve in whatever way works for you.
And, if you do believe that your husband can see you from heaven, take comfort in knowing that he is watching over you.
Dealing With the Grief of Losing a Loved One
Losing a husband is one of the hardest things a person can go through, I feel for you.
If you’re struggling to cope with your grief, there are some things that may help you.
First and foremost, it’s important to give yourself time to grieve. Don’t try to bottle up your emotions or force yourself to move on before you’re ready.
It’s also important to talk about your husband and the good memories you have of him.
Talk to your friends and family, or even join a grief support group.
Doing things that make you happy can also help you deal with your grief.
This may include hobbies, exercise, spending time with loved ones, or anything else that brings you joy.
Finally, don’t be afraid to seek professional help if you’re struggling to cope.
A therapist can help you work through your emotions and provide support during this difficult time.
If you believe he can see you from heaven, then he can.
If it brings you comfort to think that and helps you live your best life to show him that you’re happy – because I’m sure that’s what he’d want for you – then that’s all the motivation you should need.
Believe in Whatever Feels Right to You
I wanted to end by saying that at the end of the day, it’s up to you what you believe.
No one can tell you for sure if your husband can see you from heaven or not, and the bible certainly leaves room for interpretation.
And, honestly, it doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks.
The only thing that matters is that you’re able to find some peace and comfort in whatever beliefs you have.
If thinking that your husband can see you from heaven brings you comfort, then believe it.
Remember, it doesn’t matter if anyone else understands it or not. No one is feeling exactly what you’re feeling, and no one understands the connection you have with your husband.
What matters is that your beliefs help you to cope with your grief and move forward in your life.
You should always keep in mind what your husband would have wanted you to be doing and feeling.
It’s often easier said than done, and I know it’s hard to find the strength sometimes.
But ask yourself, are you living your life how your husband would have wanted?
