Good Friday reflections and looking toward to the future

I know this is a day late, but better late than never. In Christian circles the Easter weekend beginning with Good friday is a time of Prayer, Praise, Salvation and Thanksgiving. It is a time to reflect on the human condition as well as ourselves personally. We look to the one who is our Eternal Hope, and Salvation. It is only through His sacrifice that we have been redeemed, and may come boldly before the throne of grace with no need for a human mediator.

The past couple of years have been tough for myself and my family. It was only through our faith in God, the support of our church family and the strength that God gives us when we have used the last of ours. I have read some articles that debunk the verse “God will no give you more than you are able to bear.” Some cite the death of a child, disease, death of a family member,loss of job or some horrible catastrophic incident that happens. All of those would bring anybody to their knees, and make you want to scream, yell, shake your fist, or even go off on God with a long string of expletives.

When there is nothing else that we can hold onto to and when you have reached your last thread of sanity that is where Hope shines its brightest helping and guiding you back from the edge of destruction. I believe God does not give us more than we are able to bear because it is HE who created us in the womb. It is HE who knows how much we can bear, and we as human beings can only view oue strengths and weaknesses through finite eyes and mental faculties.

Loss, death, and tragic things are all a part of life. My intention is to in no way diminsh the pain and anguish that people go through. There is a God who took human form in the person of Christ Jesus. He lived on this earth for 33 years and suffered everything that humanity goes through so that he could be the perfect sacrfice. The only person who could take your place. He is our Hope, and our futre. He is the reason that we celebrate on Sunday morning. Were it not for His resurrection what hope would humanity have in the end.

To the people who say God is dead or God is not real. I would rather live my life like there is a God, and die finding out there isn’t; than to live my life like there is no God and to die only to find out HE is real. There is no condemnation here because I know I have made my fair share of mistakes.

This is my prayer and blessing to you all whether or not you believe in God or another god.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.” Num. 6:24-26
