In Between

In between times are hard. I’ve been between jobs. I’ve waited for the diagnosis. I’ve been in a tough place in a relationship, waiting for it to get better. I don’t like being in the between places. Those are hard and usually painful and mostly hopeless.

Today is the in between place in our faith story. Yesterday was Good Friday. Jesus died and buried. Tomorrow is Easter – Christ is Risen! (He is risen indeed!)

It’s good to remember that Jesus understands the in between times.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who in every respect has been tested[a]as we are, yet without sin.16Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. ~ Hebrews 4:15-16

May we sit in this in between time today: not yet joyful and not yet filled with hope. We know that God sits with us.

We’ll be looking for you, your family and friends tomorrow at 9:00 or 10:30 am for the biggest celebration of the year. The band! Homemade treats! Children’s bags! In the RCHS auditorium.

Grace be with you,
