“It’s Friday but Sunday’s Coming”

When things get bad, when it seems like all hope is lost, when there’s no use in even contemplating your dream, or worse, life, remember this story my old pastor used to tell.
Think of Jesus on the cross. You think you’ve got it bad? Not even close to what he was going through. And think about his mother, watching, unable to do anything to help her son as he suffered.
I’ve watched my daughter suffering. I’ve cried with her, hurt with her and hated every minute of her pain because I couldn’t take it away.
That was Mary. At the foot of the cross that dark, horrible Friday afternoon.
But the key, the thing to remember is it’s Friday but Sunday’s Coming.
