He has instructions for these times:
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.--John 14:27
Do not worry about your life--Matthew 6:25
Cast your cares on the Lord.--Psalm 55:22
We try, but the sadness persists.
That is when our sweet Lord offers us His side.
Put your finger here. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.--John 20:27
He is real. He had died and risen. He has rescued us from death. No matter how we feel, we must know that His wound has bled real blood so that we can know peace, so that we can be free. And when, on some days, the knowledge of these is not enough, we can reach our hand into His side, feel His pulse, and know, really know.
He does not shrink back from our touch. We cannot shrink from His.
I am with you always, to the very end of the age.--Matthew 28:20
