Nailed it!

John 16:22 “Now is your time of grief, but I will see  you again and you will recjoice, and no one will take away your joy.”  This was one of the passages to review for today’s entry in “Your Nail – A Lenten Meditation” by Arden W. Mead.  I came across this very passage a few weeks ago and wrote it down for my husband to give to his father.  Jack is 90 years old and suffering from dementia – he has no short term memory. The next time I see him, I am going to reread this verse to him. He is a Christian and will be going to heaven. What hope we Christians have! Hope is not wishful thinking. It is knowing and relying on something that one day will happen! The lenten meditation speaks of our “nail” as our griefs, sorrows, sickness. Jack is living with his “nail”. One day he will be at peace – knowing an endless joy with his Savior. Jesus took all of our “nails” with him when he died on the cross.  I am so grateful that Jesus “Nailed it!” – so I don’t have to! Thank you,God.
