The "Fridays" of Life....
"On all the Fridays of our lives, when with Jesus we want to say, "God, where are you?" maybe He (Jesus) is just hanging there present and absent all at the same time, waiting for the subversion of your story and ultimately His story to be proclaimed. After all, Sunday isn't far away." This is a little bit of a Good Friday reflection I gave awhile back. I put it in the Lenten Devotional I published and came across it today as I read and prepared for the current writing i'm doing. I needed to read it. Maybe you do to. Trying not to let stress and stifles control my focus and joy. It may feel like Friday but Sunday is coming. (I think Tony Compolo has something to say about that as well.)
To read the rest of the reflection above pick up my Lent devotion for yourself and your community.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 18th, 2015. (If you are curious about Lent and what it's all about check this out [ CRI Voice on Lent ] or just know this, Lent is all about getting your heart and mind ready for Easter, the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus.)
