“In a little while, you will not see me anymore.” John is the Gospel writer that has the feeling and passion around Jesus’ relationship with his disciples. “What do you mean, a little while?” Jesus goes on to say that they will weep and cry… but hold on, weeping only lasts for a little while…. Joy is coming on Sunday morning! Be brave, for I have over come the world. Sometimes when I read the news or listen to the TV, I wonder, where are you God? Surely you must be weeping too!
‘Help me hold onto these promises that you are greater than this world. Help me to know that you are my strength. When I am in a time of sorrow and weeping, help me remember this is not all there is! You have the last word, and it is one of hope and love and grace! Amen!”
