There is so much more I want to tell you, but you can’t bear it now.” (John 16:12 NLT)
According to Examiner.com, after a trauma occurs, the first few weeks are usually spent in a “fog,” doing all the necessary actions of life in robotic fashion, while the mind is far away. During this time and in the following months, you may begin to notice lapses in memory—not only where you put the keys, but finding the apples in the freezer or the bread on the living room table. In time, you will process things again and become normal once more.
Jesus knew the difficulties His followers were about to encounter. He had just finished quite a lengthy discussion with them of last minute teaching. Once He was arrested, He knew they would go into Trauma Mode, and forget a lot of it. So instead, He relied on a continued involvement in their lives after His death.
God knows you can only handle so much of life’s downpours. So He gives you what you need to make it through each day. But when things are good, take extra time to absorb His presence. You’ll need it soon enough! You are loved today!
