The Saturday between Good Friday and Easter is a day of reflection. Today, we ponder the endless silence found in the grave.
I think about Jesus' family and friends, of the bewilderment they must have felt that day. I have been in that place - the place where so many things I was sure of sat in ruins. Which way to turn next?
Before the third day, there is the hopelessness of the second day. The day when all seems lost and God is silent. Today, we consider that but for the hand of God, we would live in the second day forevermore.
May you feel His grace today,
The last Word:
O my God, I cry out by day, but You do not answer.
Psalm 22:2, NIV.
