You are the embodiment of resilience. When you saw people in need, you never questioned the opportunity to help and heal. When you were dismissed and betrayed, it didn’t stop you from speaking God’s truth. When you were mocked and inflicted with pain, you responded with forgiveness. And when the world thought you had been silenced for good, you rose from the grave, offering resurrection and hope for humanity. So help me to take the high road and presume the best of my neighbor. Remind me that the worst thing is never the last thing, for the Son will continue to rise. Plant within me a spirit of resilience, that I might gratefully live into your promises. May my life be a reflection of your love.
