Hope is Gone

” Low in the grave he lay, Jesus my Savior,
waiting the coming day, Jesus my Lord! Vainly they watch his bed, Jesus my Savior,
vainly they seal the dead, ” Robert Lowry

Part of this hymn is left out for a reason. The disciples, the women, his Mother and other followers must have been devistated when JESUS was crucified. All hope gone. The One they thought was the Messiah, the King. Dead. They had no idea what was to come. 

Sometimes as CHRISTIANS we feel that way. Maybe the death of a loved one, loss of home or job. The betrayal of a close friend. Illness, discouragement. Many things in our lives can seem impossible, but we like those early followers don’t know the end of the story. Joy comes in the morning.

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday. HE AROSE!!!!

Psalms 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
