It wasn't that way for those who lived it. What that Sabbath must have been like for them. We want to put our arms around them and say, "It's going to be all right. Just hold on through one more night."
Here is a song taken from the third chapter of Lamentations for this day as we wait in anticipation of the Resurrection. It was written with Cliff Duren, a wonderful writer and arranger, Cliff suggested we write a lament, a song of grief and mourning. It's also a song that says "God is faithful."
God is faithful. No matter what you are facing, remember that His mercies are new every morning and His faithfulness is great.
