The regular visitors to our little garden know I’ve had my challenges. I’ve been broken financially, physically and spiritually. I’m cranky, grumpy, sarcastic,cynical and profane. When it seems things are at their darkest, Almighty God says:’Hey, I’ve got your back. I died for you,didn’t I?’ As we struggle to make sense of the chaos going on around us we must remember that He has never, and will never, fail. We don’t understand a lot of things, it is all we can do to follow His example and stay faithful.
Have a blessed Easter weekend and stay faithful.
The Challenge: What is Good about “Good Friday?”
Darkness fell across the land and the man they thought would be their savior cried out in a loud voice, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Soon after, he breathed his last. The people standing at the foot of the cross beat their breasts and walked away. From a distance, his mother and friends watched in somber silence as all this took place.
His disciples were broken in spirit—no doubt confused, hurting and angry. Disappointed to say the least. They had followed this man for years, left their work and their families for him. They thought he would change everything. But in the course of one day, all of their hopes were defeated.
