Reflections. My heart has been reflecting on the whole week of Easter. Sometimes its been rather intense. Wondering why we tend to forget this week all year until it comes. This is really the basis for our Christian faith. There is nothing more beautiful that Jesus taking the punishment for all my sin. And nothing more worthy of rejoicing than when HE overcame death and rose again for me.
We attended the Good Friday service at church last night. My thoughts continued to gravitate to the throne room, and wondering (not questioning) how could God the Father have a love so deeply for me, and how hard it must have been to be seperated from God the Son for the first time ever. Thinking of the beauty and majesty of Heaven and thinking of HE left it to be confined in a human body, and to die the worst death, just to live again so I could come with HIM. Asking HIM, “why do you love us so much?, why do we forget so easily?”
Father God, you are better than Good. As our creator you have once again created a way out of the curse for us. How I pray that our hearts will remain soft to you. How I pray that we will rejoice in what you have done for us. Give us hearts that understand this world is temporary, and being home with you is the journey. You used your own son to build a bridge so that I could come and dance with you. You have pursued my heart til it surrendered. You have poured more love on me than is imaginable. You guide my steps, and you sing over me when I sleep. You alone are worthy of all my attention and obedience. Thank you for the cross, thank you for your son, thank you for providing the sacrfice that frees from the bondage of sin, that allows us to come directly to you. We do not deserve you, thank you that you do not give us what we deserve. “there is none like you, no one else can touch my heart like you do, I could search for all eternity long and find there is none like you”…..
