Have you felt loss or betrayal? These emotions hurt since something is gone that cannot return. It could be a person, or a sense of trust. When human weakness and fragility hit home, it shakes your foundations.
Even God has felt hurt and pain. For this the blood of Christ poured out over all humanity — to cleanse, to heal, and to bring freedom. No matter what your situation, no matter how confusing it seems, the Spirit of the Lord will explain it to you. You might not understand it with your head, but he will give you peace in your heart.
On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
