Lent 39: Ripples
There were BIG forever ripples as a result of that first “Good Friday”.
And every time we face a challenge of life WITH Abba, there are ripples.
For some this season may be pure JOY gathering with family and friends and reJOYcing. For others it may be painful or lonely.
But if/as/when we celebrated the HOPE of RESURRECTION there will be RIPPLES.
There was a boat passing by earlier. We can no longer see the boat but the ripples still arrive. Sometimes they are gentle and other times violent but ripples always come after a boat passes. As , Newton’s third law states: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Verses to Ponder:
2 Corinthians 12:9a&10b
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthhians 1:3-4 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God
