I hear My children saying “The situation we are in right now feels like such a waste. All of this time spent alone. The loss of my work and my income. This is such a waste.”
As the disciples watched Me take My last breath on the cross, surely they also felt like it had been a waste. The time spent following Me, the hope of a new kingdom and new way of life – it had been wasted. For what? For what had they given themselves to for the last 3 years?
In the darkness I move. In the mystery I work. In the waste I create.
This time of waiting, much like the time between Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, is when I am working the deepest things.
Don’t despair. I am working in the uncertainty and unknown. I am moving. I am bringing life and hope and newness.
It is always darkest before the dawn.
