what’s so good about this friday?

John 19:30When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Dear God,
Thanks for waking me up. Thanks for bringing me through another year to the most important event in history. This is the day You changed everything. Thank You Jesus! Thank You for my new life. Thank You for taking my place on the cross. Thank You for Your huge sacrifice that is beyond comprehension. Thank You for choosing me to be part of Your family. As I go out today, let everything I do bring glory to Your holy name. Let my words and actions reflect the love You showed me when You willingly came down here and died for me. Forgive me for all my silly pride in thinking I deserve to have people love me. I don’t even know what love is apart from You. I have no right to think I deserve anything from anybody. I need Your help every single day because without You I am undone. Thank You that You have promised to never leave me or forsake me. Thank You that You never change. Thank You that You were obedient to death on a cross so I could be saved. Thank You for Your sunrise. Thank You for Your sunset. Thank You for holding my right hand and leading me the way I should go. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! I love You! Praise You! Worship You! Adore You! Jesus! My Savior!

holy thursday…

Today, Jesus was anointed by a woman in Bethany because she loved Him so much. We know this because she is given a place of honor in His Word for her sacrifice.

Today, Judas, who seemed to love the Lord, sold Him out for 30 pieces of silver. We know in the end he didn’t think it was worth it. But what a mistake. How sad it was that he didn’t think he could repent and ask for forgiveness.

Today, Jesus made a new covenant with us that was poured out in His blood. I hope you will think about this and accept this as how much He loves you.

Today, Jesus went to Gethsemane and sweated drops of blood because He was in such agony at what He had to do. The agony did not stop Him. He loves us that much!

Today, Jesus told Peter he would deny Him 3 times. Peter didn’t believe it until it actually happened. Thank God, he didn’t do what Judas did. He repented and returned to the Lord.

Ten things I am thanking God for today:

151. You break bread with me
152. You included me in the new covenant
153. even if I was the only one, You would still do it
154. You lived through this day knowing what would happen tomorrow
155. I don’t know that amount of suffering
156. You blessed me with a great family
157. Robert is happy today
158. Galen is happy too
159. Jennica is my friend
160. Armenia

new day, new mercy, praise the Lord!

I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of; for to have been thought about, born in God’s thought, and then made by God, is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing in all thinking. George MacDonald
