I can't sleep....I wake up throughout the night with a sadness I can't explain. I stand in my kitchen and quietly weep while making lunch for my 7 year old. I can't explain the sadness....it's overwhelming. The things I read, hear, witness...in the world, in my community, in my circle can sometimes break my heart into pieces. I find myself wanting to escape, but I delve into the word and remember that there is good. God brings good....sometimes I have to search for it, but it is there. Today I'm searching hard.
Jesus answered them, “Do you finally believe? In fact, you’re about to make a run for it—saving your own skins and abandoning me. But I’m not abandoned. The Father is with me. I’ve told you all this so that trusting me, you will be unshakable and assured, deeply at peace. In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.”
