The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window of divine surprise. ~ Carl Knudson
This quote made me stop and think - and then smile as I realized the truth and relevance of it. When the disciples saw Jesus die and then be buried they truly thought everything they had believed in and staked their futures on had died and been buried as well. This was their darkest night. If only they had known, would have understood the awesomeness of what was about to take place! This dark night was but a birthing of what was to come.
And if only we, in our darkest of nights, would only understand that this is not our end, but a new beginning, maybe the night would be easier to endure. Because for those who endure, their is a dawn of new beginning, new life.
Just hold on and wait for the divine surprise!
