I was planning to write something about Good Friday but then I read this post on lifeingraceblog.com, it is so beautiful and so true and I just felt I needed to share it with you, there's nothing more to add:
" This is where we were made to live, in the veiled glory of Good Friday. Easter is coming, to be sure. But learn to live here first, in the brokenness. Don’t despise today. His suffering is for you. And me. We spend so much time and effort presenting our best selves to the world but He came to be broken and His heart is to see us live there, too. We want prosperity. He bore a cross. We want an easier way. He blazed an impossible path. We want to be liked. He came to love. And His love, on display on Good Friday, changed the world.
Stay with Him, here, until it’s time.
Stay here, at the cross.... "
Read from the beginning here....
Have a good Friday, and a hope filled and joyful Easter weekend!
