Holy Friday

As I leave the kitchen table from my Bible reading this morning, moving into the few tasks ahead… may I take time to be still throughout this day. To focus on what He did for me. May I reflect upon the hours He suffered, after already suffering such humiliation and utter betrayal.

May I rest quietly later, thinking about the darkness, the mocking assassins, His Mama watching… in her own searing pain.

May I close my eyes and envision the curtain being torn in two. Removing the divide between a Holy God and my sinful self. May I deeply reflect upon all that He gave up.

May I never get so accustomed to Jesus’ death that it doesn’t make me cry. May I never get so accustomed to the Resurrection that it doesn’t leave me in awe and amazement.

This Holy “Week” has still passed too quickly. I have not devoted enough time to His Holiness. May today be holy. Reverent. Slower. Aware. Grateful. Praying. May I stop again and again and again throughout this day – remembering.

    We had meaningful services on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. You took more time for private reflection than I did. I shall try to follow your example.

    I woke during the night and thought of the suffering of that night for Jesus of Nazareth. I am so grateful for the sacrifice and for the redemption. I am nor religious but i am so very grateful . Thank you for this post.
