Capsule for the Day

Jacqui lost her baby, she is dealing with the loss. Tim ran over a mother of three, he is afraid the judge will sentence him. Lucy has been praying for years for a husband and there seems to be no one crossing her path. James is going through divorce, it is just too much; he is not coping.

Different people, different stories... all struggling to go through the day. We are battling. It is hard. Our finances are running out. We have prayed; we have consulted experts; we have even done stuff we shouldn't have done all in a bid to get answers, to find a solution to our predicaments. Sad!

Is there a God? Yes! Does He know what I am going through? Yes! Why isn't He doing something? I don't know. I don't have the answer. But He has the answer - the Cross. He hangs there, helpless and forsaken. Everything was spent except hope... and hope paid Him off... He arose!
