Read Mark 16:1-7

[The women] asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”

—Mark 16:3 (NIV)

As a little girl, I adored my daddy. When he and my mother were in their eighties, my family enjoyed having them live with us. One evening, my dad had a massive stroke. Hospitalized, he made minimal progress; so he was admitted to a nursing home. I feared the prospect of facing life without him.

During Dad’s remaining four months, my mother was amazing. At times, she became weary and worried about the future, but she quickly regained her strength and faith. I marveled at her ability to do so, and she explained that whenever she became fearful, she thought of the women who made their way to Jesus’ tomb. Worried about how they would move the massive stone and enter the tomb, they asked each other, “Who will roll the stone away?” When they arrived at the tomb, the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. God had not only provided the solution to their worry but had given a gift that was beyond all hope.

Throughout my father’s illness, when my mother or I began to worry, we reminded each other, “Who will roll the stone away?” Then, we smiled, knowing we could trust God to help us along the way.

Prayer—Dear Father, when we fear the future, help us to trust you completely. Amen.

Thought for the Day—God will roll the stone away.
