Grace and Truth for Good Friday

| April 19, 2019

Good Friday is upon us once again.

I don’t know how this season finds you… if you have steeped yourself in Jesus the past 40 days and are feeling spiritually ready for all that surrounds this amazing celebration of our Savior or not. But I’ll be really honest with you… That’s not where this Good Friday finds me.

This year has been rough.

The last two years have been rough.

And as much as I love Jesus, it’s been hard to focus on celebrating His life and resurrection. That’s not a pretty truth, but it’s the honest truth.

So, as I sit here at my desk writing and pondering at 1 AM instead of sleeping, I’m reminded of a post I wrote a couple years back.

It was a reminder to myself that Easter isn’t a feeling, but a fact.

The death and resurrection of Jesus, our very salvation, isn’t based on our ever changing feelings, but they are, and ever will be, indisputable facts.

Grace and Truth For Your Next Meltdown

Grace and Truth for When You Feel Like You Don’t Belong

Have you ever walked into a room full of people and felt like you were completely alone? I have. Many, many times. I remember driving to the women’s Christmas party our church was hosting one year and giving myself a pep talk just so…

Grace & Truth & The God Who Sees Me

Do you ever feel left out or forgotten? Like if you disappeared the whole world would just go on without you? Okay, maybe your family needs you, but your church family wouldn’t notice, or your work place wouldn’t care? Maybe your school or your…

Grace and Truth for Your Prayer Life

How’s your prayer life been lately? God has really been convicting me about mine lately, so when I clicked over to read Diane’s post last Friday, I felt like it had been written just for me.…

Grace and Truth For When You’re Seeking Jesus

I shared a little bit of the chaos that is my life last week. It would be fair to say that I’m still in the midst of it all. Which is probably why Marva’s post from last week spoke right to my heart.…

When It Rains It Pours – Grace and Truth Link Up

Our internet was hacked. We pay for 21 meg, we were getting like 0.2. Someone else was eating up the rest of it. After figuring out what was wrong, I changed the password and the problem was solved… Then my husband’s computer that has…

Oh No He Didn’t! …When Mother Doesn’t Know Best

The off-handed comment was followed by laughter as the two guys exchanged looks. The only purpose to that remark could have been to rub salt in the wound and I could feel the anger building in my teenage son who was standing next to…

Grace and Truth for Your Quiet Time

When my twins were little finding some one-on-one time with Jesus was… well, difficult to say the least. Quiet time? That was almost laughable. I had four children ages five and under, so I learned to work with what I had. But I definitely…

Grace and Truth and Quiet Courage

I’m super excited to feature on of our own Candid Gals this week for Grace and Truth. Laura Rath wrote a post about quiet courage, because courage doesn’t always scream “I can do this” from the roof tops. Sometimes it just silently puts one…

Uncomfortable Grace and Truth

I didn’t choose a word for this year, but that doesn’t mean I’m anti-one word people, or boycotting the one word movement. In fact, the featured post I chose for today is all about one woman and her one word. So just what is…

Grace & Truth After Abortion As A Christian Woman

We all have a past. I’ll be honest, I’m not proud of everything I did growing up. And I’ll go out on a limb and say you probably aren’t either. I was the “good kid.” Breaking rules and disobeying didn’t even occure to me.…
