There’s no pain as life-changing as the loss of a loved one. It is immense. And it’s a common thread throughout humanity.
I have experienced heartache that hangs on like a bull rider clinging to a rope.
Maybe you have as well.
Each year, during Holy week, I re-read the true story of what Jesus went through during the days before His crucifixion.
One of the things that always amazes me is that a group of people welcomes Him by laying down palm branches and even pieces of clothing; but within seven days, they’re chanting for Him to be crucified.
Jesus disappointed them. They thought He was coming as a political savior and so gave Him a conquering hero’s welcome. But He didn’t do what they wanted—to get them out from under Rome’s powerful control.
After years of living under lies and fear, I have found truth and victory in God.
