Flowers Will Come Again

It’s on my heart to encourage you tonight.

The Palm Sunday message at church today and the GriefShare message in my current group’s last session were about hope.

Christians recognize the upcoming week as Holy Week. While we want to jump right to and focus on Easter, the days leading up to Easter are an important part of the story. In fact, without the betrayal, chaos and pain that takes place, there is no triumph of Easter.

The last session of the 13-week GriefShare program focuses on moving forward. But a big part of the message is recognizing that there is pain and that healing includes accepting that pain and peace can co-exist.

Sometimes our pain is overwhelming and we settle in a belief that it will never go away. What pain are you in today that you see as never ending? Are you discouraged about a situation and feel hopeless that it will change? Are you grieving the death of a loved one, the loss of relationship or some other type of loss? Are you in physical pain that is chronic or has a long road of treatment?

I want to encourage you today that your pain is not forever. It may take effort on your part or help from others, but it will get better. Answers may not always be as we imagine, but there are hope and peace to come.

Take heart in these words written by songwriter and singer Emily Scott Robinson:

The time for flowers will come again

Maybe in one year, maybe in ten

There are days despair will win

But the time for flowers will come again

Please reach out to someone you trust and share your pain and your sense of overwhelm or hopelessness with it. If you don’t have someone to reach out to, reach out to me.
