I honestly wasn’t sure what to write about Good Friday this year, but I knew that I was going to write something. I kept going back and forth with myself in my head. “Write anything, what’s so difficult about it?”
If you don’t know, my husband Charlie and I are Christian. When we recommitted our lives to the Lord it changed everything for the better. Life didn’t get easier, in fact, it got harder. But I wouldn’t have been able to endure what I’ve gone through if it weren’t for my faith. And in my world, Easter is the most important day of the year.
2 years ago I wrote a post about Good Friday, a piece I’m really proud of. When it came to write this post I kept thinking, “How can I top that post?” But honestly, I don’t think that’s what this post is going to be about.
This year, this day, I’m in a different place compared to when I wrote that post. I’m not going to put pressure on myself, instead I’m just going to let my fingers run free. Even if I’m not as prepared as I was 2 years ago to write something I hope it’s still powerful this time around. Honestly, at this time in my life I just want to remember something. I want to remember that sacrifice is humbling, truly humbling. The sacrifice that Jesus did for us on the cross forever changed the way I look at the world, and because of that I’m truly humbled and grateful.
Thank you, Lord, for what you did on the cross, where you have led me, what you are currently doing in my life, and the plans you have for me. No matter what may lie ahead, I am at peace knowing that you are at the wheel. Please help me to remember trust in your timing, to always lean on you and not on my own understanding, and to listen intently. Amen.
