Hey friends, how are you today, on this beautiful Good Friday? The skies are blue, the sun is out in all its glory, there isn’t snow on the ground and our temperature at this time, is a fabulous 39°.  But it is quite windy today and so it feels a tad bit cooler than the actual temperature.  Thankfully my reality is usually far removed from my feelings.  Because of the price paid by my Savior for my life, I am allowed to feel, but not overwhelmed by my circumstances.  My feelings should always be placed in perspective because how I feel isn’t always an accurate view of my reality.  

Today is Good Friday, though  many Christians say there was nothing ‘good’ about this day a few thousand years ago.  Many only see the betrayal of Judas, the denial of Peter, the mocking of the crowd, the beatings of the soldiers.  We remember the desperate cries of our Lord to ‘take this cup from me’.  We recall the acceptance of the cross in His Words, “not My will, but Thine be done”.  We see, in our minds’ eye, our Lord’s final moments on the cross and listen as He says, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do”.  And yes, we should never forget the cost of freedom.

I choose joy on this day because I know the full story.  My Lord chose this path before time began.  Even before the first man was created, this plan was already written. It was the only way for my salvation.  And how thankful I am that I am saved.  I am saved because of the cross. Eternal life is mine, peace is mine, joy is mine, beauty is mine all because of death, burial and resurrection of the Son, Who is God. No need to mourn because He lives! Though we should never the cost, we should always remember the reason for the cross.

Happy Good Friday, friends, how are you doing? What are your feelings about Good Friday?

  2. Hallelujah, He LIVES, indeed!
    Even our Lord, Himself, counted it all joy: Hebrews 12.2 “…who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
    JOY-ing with you, dear sister!

  3. Thank Goodness for the full story, which gives us hope for abundant life! On Good Friday, my soul aches for the cruelty my Savior had to endure for me. And then I am filled with joy at the prospect of Sunday’s coming! Where my Savior was victorious over all that cruelty, and gave us the way to obtain that beautiful, abundant life! Hallelujah Jesus! 💜
