Comedian Chonda Pierce knows how to turn pain into positive. The Emmy-nominated comic has been making audiences laugh for more than 20 years.

But isn’t it crazy how the people who bring us joy the most, can also be going through the worst kind of pain and suffering. Over the course of three years, Pierce suffered the loss of her mother and became estranged from her daughter. She also faced the tragedy of her husband’s death after a battle with alcoholism.

Over the Easter Holidays, Pierce described Resurrection Sunday as ‘Everything’ to her.

“We have a living God and so that means He walks and talks with us every day as we are alive,” she said in an interview with CBN News. “And so it is the grandest celebration for our entire faith. I think if it had not been for the cross, I can tell you right now, I would not be alive. I think His intervention in my life has been nothing less than divine. And so that takes a living God. So the resurrection of Christ is everything.”

Her chat with CBN over the Easter Holidays had me reflecting on Psalm 31:24

“Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.”

Don’t lose hope, no matter what you are going through.
