Day 44 Extra: A Day Without


*I stumbled upon my writing from last year & it pierced my heart~

So today you get 2 Good Friday posts, as this is the second one*

A day

WITHOUT JESUS is a day WITHOUT~

WITHOUT

Peace

WITHOUT

Hope

WITHOUT

Joy

&

WITH

Total separation from

GOD~

complete Darkness.

The same darkness that filled the sky on the day that is called

GOOD FRIDAY.

The day when

JESUS became separated from GOD on the cross.

The brutal cross where

HE hung for three hours~

"From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land" (Matthew 27:25)

Darkness filled the heart of HIS mother & HIS disciples.

A day WITHOUT JESUS Is a day WITHOUT!

What is your "WITHOUT" that causes you to be WITHOUT

But GOD allowed darkness to take over when HE allowed

HIS SON to suffer, as JESUS wore each nail that kept Him on the cross..

And then about three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice,

"Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?"

(which means 'My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?')" (Matthew 27:46).

Have you ever cried out those same words in your "WITHOUT" moments~

"My GOD, my GOD, why have you forsaken me?

Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish?

My GOD, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest." (Psalm 22:1-2)

JESUS

Experiencing

Total Darkness & Total Separation from

HIS FATHER.

JESUS' WITHOUT'S

greatest moment.~

"GOD made HIM who had no sin to be sin for us,

so that IN HIM we might become the righteousness of GOD" (2 Corinthians 5:12)~

ONCE & FOR ALL

so darkness would never take over us on a

Good day called

GOOD FRIDAY.

Good for us because

"GOD demonstrates HIS own love for us in this:

While we were still sinners, CHRIST died for us" (Romans 5:8)

On this

GOOD FRIDAY

Let's

FAST

from

WITHOUT

by nailing to the cross whatever is weighing you down

from living

WITH

PEACE

JOY

&

HOPE

and by looking up to the

One

Who we can't live

WITHOUT

because

A DAY WITHOUT JESUS is a day WITHOUT!

A MOMENT WITHOUT JESUS is a moment WITHOUT!

A SECOND WITHOUT JESUS is a second WITHOUT!
