God Morning Good Friday

God Morning!

No, that isn’t a typo. That’s my morning greeting with my friend Lark.  And this morning it really fits!

God Morning Good Friday!

Good Friday, God, Jesus, Lord, love, life, death, Via Dolorosa, crucified, cross, cowboy, cowgirl, horse, cow, cattle, bull

Sun Rise Good Friday Out My Front Door

Good Friday started Monday

The Blood Moon on Passover started the week with intense emotion for me. Then I bared my soul with my confessions of fears and vulnerability, and now, it’s Good Friday and I just want to stop my life and spend the day in prayer and meditation.

Today is the day our Lord Jesus carried his own cross down the Via Dolorosa to die for me.  For ME.  I swung the hammer and drove the nails into His hands and feet.

Via Dolorosa

I find it interesting that the Via Dolorosa  in Latin means “Way of Grief”, “Way of Sorrows”, “Way of Suffering” or simply “Painful Way.” It is thought to be the very street within the Old City of Jerusalem that Jesus traveled on his way to be crucified.  Very appropriate name.

I hope you will be mindful of what Jesus did for us today, over 2000 years ago. Today, he suffered ridicule and shame, beating, and a torturous death for us. For you, and for me.

Love

Jesus told his disciples at their “Last Supper” last night that “Greater love hath no man than to lay down one’s life for a friend.” (John 15:13) And then he did it. For you and for me. He loved us enough to die for us.

I know this is unconventional, and breaking every blogging rule in the book, but I would like to pray right here, right now.

Father God, I come before you and pray for the eyes reading these words.  Lord, please bless this person, their family and friends. Lord, I ask for a fresh awareness of you in their life right now!  Right this very moment Lord.  Stir in them a love for you like they’ve never experienced before.  Lord, bring Jesus and His life, death, and love for us into their consciousness and heart as never before.  Sweet Jesus, thank you for suffering and dieing for me. Me, with all my sins and faults. Thank you. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Go with God.

    † My Dear Sister Kristi such a blessing you are.

    Thank you for sharing your caring and loving heart. Your words moved me and inspired my Holy spirit within to reach with the authority of Christ on my knees reaching out in tears and thanking Him for the brothers and sisters spirit filled and overflowing with passion for God.

    “I ask you Lord Father, to be the fire and driving force, guiding light in Sister Kristi to continue to speak in love and wisdom from her heart. In Jesus’ name we pray.. Amen! Truly, all Glory and Honor goes to God. Thank you so much for making my day through Christ we believe.

    Footnote on Good Friday… The Death of Jesus. I posted Matthew 27:50 this early this morning after reading (ESV) all of Matthew 27.

    “Good Friday” is what the Christian church has named the day that Jesus died on the cross.
    The Death of Jesus.
    Matthew 27:50 (ESV) And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit.

    Have a very Blessed Good Friday, michael
