a Good Friday prayer

"Lord, I want my life to be a love letter from Christ, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God. Not on tablets of stone but on the tablet of my heart. Holy Spirit, remind me that I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.

     It's a very grey day outside, as I sit here and write this post. While thinking about living as Christ I remembered that I am so very thankful for grey days. So many wonderful things have come out of grey days for me. Jared first came to visit me on an extremely grey day, and because he came to see me on that grey day our lives have never been the same. 

     I also think of the day my Saviour, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for me, and it was a very grey day indeed (or so it seemed.) There in that grey day of death was also much joy and hope to be found. The grey had gone on the 3rd day and the light of the world once again shone brightly. He was made alive in His resurrection. That beautifully rolled back stone and cold empty tomb could be seen...and it was then known... My King was and IS ALIVE! 

     When you or I are going through a "grey day" in our every day life perhaps we will both begin to see it quite a bit differently now. Through the greyest of days so long ago, that very grey day has granted you and I eternal life and the opportunity to be crucified alongside Christ. Now we live as the redeemed; Christ within us for the world to see.

Happy Blessed Good Friday To You,


  1. Powerful....

    Btw, how are you feeling??

  2. I am starting to feel much better. My back has been hurting on and off a bit, but there's been a lot of improvement since I started going to the chiropractor to get my spine straightened out. Thanks for asking, and also for your prayers!

  3. Hey - I wanted to let you know that I am still working on that "visions and dreams" post I mentioned to you.

    I am following Holy Experience. We are counting our blessings to 1000. This week, I listed 20 famous people who have inspired me. I would love to have your feedback and perhaps read about who has inspired you!

  4. Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Enjoyed reading through your last q&a post!
