Today is a bittersweet day for me, 11 years ago I weathered the worst storm thinkable when my daughter went to be with the Lord; today also happens to be Palm Sunday, the day when Jesus entered into Jerusalem as He prepared to give the ultimate sacrifice – His life for our sins.
Not only does God know the pain of losing a child but He sent his child to die for us. He watched as his son was mocked, ridiculed, tempted, beaten and crucified – all because of his love for us.
It brings me so much peace knowing that He loves me that much.
I won’t always understand and I’ll always have questions but I’ll never have doubt. My strength is greater today than it’s ever been but most importantly my relationship and love for God is like never before.
Like a loving parent He has embraced and comforted me in my time of pain and sadness and now my days are filled with peace and joy.
I wish that everyone could know this – I write this today so that everyone can know it.
Whether you’ve gone through some storms that you don’t understand just know that He is waiting.
Today is the day…
