Somedays it feels like the world is winning.
Somedays word reaches you of a person now gone.
Some deep struggle now done, now over. Good-bye.
And you never knew.
You had seen them around, in passing. Maybe you waved. Maybe you were in a hurry, so you looked the other way. But they were drowning, and you didn’t know.
“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.”
Sometimes the desperation breaks through, and you have a chance to speak and love and encourage and fight. And sometimes you find out too late.
If You had been here…
I am the resurrection and the life.
Why trouble the Teacher any further?
Do not fear, only believe.
See how He loved him!
On those days, my only hope is that Jesus is the King of Reversals.
Son, your sins are forgiven.
He has risen; he is not here.
