There are times when we’re surrounded by darkness, like Jesus was when He faced his death. Times when we call out to God in anguish and brokenness, like Jesus did: “Father, why have you forsaken me?” The darkness may be serious illness in yourself or a family member, financial difficulty, deep emotional pain, or even coming face to face with death.It’s heartening to know that even in Jesus' death, God is still working - working to bring together each broken piece so that He can breathe the life of Jesus’ resurrection into us once again. This is the Good News! Darkness dispelled and broken people restored, redeemed, and made whole. No matter how dark your circumstance, or how hard it may be to see, trust that God is actively at work, and that He will bring about goodness and new life for you. Amen.
