Grief can be overwhelming.
Depending upon the circumstances of grief, we may be confused.
We might feel helpless.
On the day after Jesus’ death, His followers were likely swamped with such emotions.
And since it was the Jewish sabbath, there was no “doing” permitted that could distract them from their pain.
In such times, God wants us to draw near to Him.
To be still in His presence and allow the Holy Spirit to comfort us.
To remember that regardless of how things may seem, He loves us.
And He remains in control both now and forever.
Luke 23:50-56 (NKJV)
John 16:19-20,22 (NIV)
Psalm 34;18 (NASB)
