Honestly, when I first woke up and still in my morning fog, I’d forgotten it was ‘Good’ Friday…till I checked into Facebook and friends had shared so many great scriptures, thoughts and prayers of what our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has done for us. Hear that? ALREADY done for each of us…long, long before our earthly grandparents were even thought about or born! How can we imagine this? We can’t! Oh, but I love to just sit and ponder the things of God and how one day He will reveal all of these mysteries and all of these questions will be answered! Of which I have so many….it seems I have more every day! I just can’t wait!
So it’s a good day to reflect, wonder and ponder….I’ve spent my morning looking at old documents on my computer, (like Jordan’s school papers from two years ago) and I came across some thoughts I put down back in 2011. Today is not Wednesday, but I’d like to share what I was thinking back then:
‘God is God and I am not. Lessons re-learned, knowledge and understanding revealed, increased wisdom…and it’s only Wednesday! Such a week! I am so blessed and yet I am a very good sinner. But I serve an Awesome God Who loves me and has orchestrated all of my daily devotionals, my book reading and Pastor’s teaching to be just what I needed this very week in my life. I’m convinced that He knew all of this before I was conceived!
This is not a new concept…He has done this for me many times before. But when I seek for truth and I ask God for specific answers (as I have been doing these past several days) AND I keep my spiritual, as well as physical, eyes and ears open…He is so extremely faithful! Love that ‘mouth gaping’ kind of awe!
My God knows how to lovingly and gently knock me upside the head when I need it, leaving me feeling cared for and humiliatingly reprimanded at the same time – brings me to joyful and repentant tears!’
I’m almost sure those thoughts have applied many Wednesdays since then and I pray they continue to as long as I live. And may every Friday….and every other day of the week….be Good and be reminders to us all of what He’s already done for us! He is greatly to be praised!
