John 16:20-23

But your suffering will be turned to joy.

The perils of parenthood, mourning the loss of a loved one, putting our lives together after a break-up, forgiving the individual who has hurt us deeply or seeking the forgiveness of someone we have hurt deeply – we can survive all of those things and more if we keep in mind that Jesus shoulders those crosses with us.

He walks with us into an Easter of new possibilities and direction.
