I spoke with a friend today whose family was recently rocked by some very difficult news. She told me that when the Doctor delivered the news she said, “Life as you know it will never be the same.”
I have been thinking a lot about this tonight. A short 24 hours earlier, Jesus and His best friends were sharing a meal, then everything changed in a moment and life was never the same. Just one day after the death of their Friend, their God, Jesus; shock, fear, grief and anxiety still ruled and the disciples could not yet accept that, Life as they knew it would never be the same. They did not yet know the secret that even from a change in their lives this terrible, this earth shattering, something GOOD would come and Life as they knew it would never be the same!
Life will never be the same… still grieving but now slowly understanding and accepting the change and the magnitude of Your gift. Thank You and I love You so much Jesus!
