Do you ever stop and ask yourself, “How did I get here?” Sometimes the situations and circumstances in our lives are a lot to bear. I’ll admit to questioning God at times, wondering if He hears me when I pray, not understanding how He could allow me to endure such pain.
But sometimes the plan IS the pain. Through the pain He teaches me where to draw strength. I learn who I am. I discover the I AM.
The plan for Christ was pain, too. Through His pain and ultimate death, we can have life. Today, as I reflect on the cross – the blood, the anguish, the tears, the holes – I am strengthened. Because even when we can’t see it, God ALWAYS has a plan.
It may be Friday in your life, but Beloved hold on because Sunday is coming.
It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining.
And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.
Luke 23:44-46 NIV
Happy Easter to from my family to yours!
