Earlier today, I read a quote by author and speaker Jennifer Rothschild:

“Every fear and sorrow of Friday became tears of joy on Sunday. So, if your life feels like a dark Friday, hang on, Sunday is on the way!”

I have experienced many dark Friday’s in my life, especially throughout my journey of miscarriage, stillbirth, and infertility.  It seemed as if those days would never end. I buried my stillborn baby daughter on a Thursday and woke up the next morning to the darkest Friday of my entire life. And then Sunday came…

Fifteen years passed before my Sunday finally arrived. It was literally Sunday, October 12, 2008 when my twins were born. They are the beautiful fulfillment of a promise and dream come true –  a dream which was planted in my heart by the Savior Himself.  After a long hard-fought war, I was left lying weak and wounded on the battlefield, but I was never alone. Not for one minute of those fifteen years was I ever by myself. My Jesus lifted me up, mended my broken heart, and declared victory in His Name.

John 14:18

I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.

Today, as I meditate on the sacrifice of my Savior, and what He did to win my soul, I am grateful not only for what He endured in facing death, but for the miracle of Sunday. I will focus on the Risen One, the Son of God, my Saving Grace, and Only Hope.  I will fix my eyes on Life and Love. I will praise the Most High for dying on a dark Friday, So that I can live an illuminated Sunday.

If your day is dark, there is hope. Hope came for you. Died for you. Arose from the dead for you.  Remember His heart wrenching sacrifice of Friday, but rejoice in Sunday’s victory. Death was defeated. The grave overcome.

Consider the insightful words of Jennifer Rothschild, “Hang on, Sunday is on the way!”
