REFLECTION


In Between Yesterday and Tomorrow

by Mary Alice McGinnis

Life is full of moments that require faith.


Often there are two opposing realities at work; the moments between the fresh grief of what we experienced yesterday and the hope of tomorrow that has not yet dawned. There is a tension between what God has promised and those promises that are not yet fulfilled.

The space between the sorrows I am experiencing now and the promise of the joy of what is yet to come.


So on this Holy Saturday, let take some time to sit in this place of tension, that uncomfortable place between the grief of yesterday and the joyful hope of what is coming.

After the gruesome events of Good Friday, the disciples scatter, hiding behind closed doors, bewildered, confused, and full of the fear of “what’s next?”
