Mourning, of course, is a process of healing. It’s odd, but processes that help us heal are always uncomfortable and painful. Yet, over time, they prove themselves to be extremely effective. A time of mourning can also be these three things: a time of solemnity, a time of fasting, and a time of prayer.
Because Christ lived a perfect life and sacrificed Himself for our freedom, we have the chance to build a partnership with God. But after we make that covenant with God, how do we keep it?

I want you to pause for a minute and ask yourself – What questions do I have about my religious beliefs? Don’t skim past that. Let yourself think about it. Now what do you do with those questions?
Maybe right now we don’t feel like we can rejoice. That’s okay. But instead of rejoicing, we can still “be of good comfort.” Our dear Father in Heaven is still there. He’s still listening to us.

Christ may not come when we expect Him. He may not do what we think He should do. But if we learn anything from Easter, it’s that He does come to bring hope and salvation.
We can be prepared by Christ and for Christ as we focus on building a personal relationship with Him.
It may seem like Christ is distant, that He isn’t coming, and that it’s too late for Him to help you anyway. But He isn’t far away, He is coming, and it’s never too late for Him to help you.
