horribly good… finish…

Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

John 19:30 NIV

The horribly good day… comes to an end…

Jesus… breathed His last… gave up His spirit…

committing His life into the Father’s hands

The life He lived as the Word made flesh… all He’d done according to the Father… He finished…

With the finishing… He commits the outcome to God the Father… it is all in His hands now…

and Jesus was tucked away… in… a… tomb…


I spent time in a spiritual discipline today… a stations of the cross meditation…

It might be a journey for you this Easter weekend…

A prep to celebrate this most un-traditional… out of sorts Easter… letting the author show you how Jesus gave us His life on the cross…

Unforsaken

From the journey… one particular station spoke to me in a powerful way…

The station where Jesus said… Father… into Your hands… I commit my spirit…

A reminder of how He lived…

Jesus lived every moment with that total trust in his Father. He never tried to control people or situations; he didn’t try to force things to happen but kept abandoning the outcome to God…

–Bill Gaultiere, UnforsakenGuide.com

A reminder of how we should live… this side of the cross…

Every moment of life committed to Him…

Look back on today… however you lived it… commit the life you lived today… into His hands…

abandon the outcome to Him…

And God, who searches the heart, knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn within a large family.

Romans 8:27-29 NRSV

  1. Windol and I just finished watching a Good Friday service. We were talking and said we know the story of this horrible Good Friday but yearn to hear it again. We all need to hear it again. So much sadness and on the other side so much gladness. Thank you for your words❤️
