Holy Week is definitely one of my favorite weeks of the year, if not the favorite. Why? It's straight up Gospel week!
This is the week that declares to the world a Savior has come; He died on the cross taking on the weight of humanity's sin; He rose from the dead conquering sin and death; He ascended into heaven and sits enthroned interceding for us and is coming again for His bride.
This is the week of all weeks!
Don't you just love moments when God opens your spiritual eyes? When you experience His living and active Word? I have read the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25 quite a few times. But recently something new jumped out at me.
Verses 21 and 23 say, "His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.'"
It's that last phrase that I've never really noticed: Enter into the joy of your master.
This week has been off to an ugly start. Sunday afternoon my sweet Katherine and I got sick within minutes of each other. Her poor, helpless little self was so scared and confused and shaken up. After she got sick the first time we went up to the bathroom so she could sit in the bathtub, but that's when I ended up helpless myself, hunched over the toilet. And that left my little one even more scared and confused and shaken up. My heart ached as she stood there crying and I could not comfort her.
Sarah loves Jesus and her family and is passionate about addressing the urgent spiritual and physical needs around the world. She is the wife of Spencer and mama of Katherine and Claire, and they live in Nashville, TN. She runs a photography business with her husband and writes in order to offer encouragement and invite others to choose grace, joy, and gratitude in the adventure and the mundane. She loves traveling and reading; she will choose unsweet tea over sweet and bootcut jeans over skinny; and she is all sorts of awkward with small talk but thrives with deep conversations.
