Marji Laine: Faith~Driven Fiction

Into Holy Week


cross w nailLast week, I pretty much covered Jehovah Tsidkenu. For most of the other names of God, I found enough inspiration and data from others to share with y’all for two Thursdays instead of just one. 

So this week, I’m in a listening mode. The verse in Psalms: Be still my soul and know that He is God. Especially as I ready my spirit for Holy Week. Don’t get me wrong; every week is to be lived in holiness. Everyday is to be lived like Sunday. As Christ followers, serious about a relationship with the Lord and conscious of His presence at all times, the mode of holiness is just part of life. That’s not the type of getting ready that I’m talking about.

Preparing for Holy week is more of a mindset to make sure that I’m not taking the events that occurred almost 2000 years ago for granted. I know the story. I’ve been in church all my life. But may my Lord’s sacrifice never grow old. May my adoration never become routine. May the ransom He paid for my sake never become common.

That’s it.

Be blessed.

  1. One of my favorite verses and also one of the hardest for me. Be still? Um, could you hurry it up, God? Thanks for sharing, Marji!
