“Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died” (John 11:21). Do you hear the disappointment in Martha’s voice?
A confused and fragile faith is nothing new. At times, even the earliest followers of Jesus struggled to make sense of what the Savior was doing. Such was the case with Martha when she learned her brother Lazarus had died and Jesus wasn’t around to prevent it from happening.
Disease, delay, and even the strange twists and turns our life can take all possess the potential to shake our faith to the ground. Can you trust God to lead you through the valley of the shadow of death? Jesus said to Martha, “I AM the resurrection and the life.”
