(The angels) asked her, “Woman, why are you crying?” “They have taken my Lord away,” she said, “and I don’t know where they have put Him.” John 20:13
Today you are invited to consider how you feel when you are lost and bewildered. Mary had lost the person dearest to her in the world, yet she answered the angels’ question. What do you do when you feel so very sad? Do you hide or bury your sadness in false cheerfulness – or in substance abuse? How do you cope? What would Jesus want you to do? Ask Him. What does He say to you? How will you respond to His reply? What change will you make – if any?
May God bless you with comfort in despair and a way to deal with your sadness when you next feel sad. May you feel His joy.
