On the Night of His Betrayal

“On the night of his betrayal,”

Jesus restored us into his fellowship of faith, hope, and love. He is acquainted with personal betrayal and in himself offers us the answers to our own betrayal.

“Until then, there are three things that remain: faith, hope, and love—yet love surpasses them all. So above all else, let love be the beautiful prize for which you run.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

Fingers Pointing Right On Back

David and I have decided our goal in parenting is for our girls to look back and see love. In spite of all our mistakes and flaws, quick reproaches or unattainable expectations, we want them to reflect and remember love. There is much at stake. We don’t want to get in the way of the redemptive work of God in their hearts. When these two covenant babies hear the voice of the Father say, “You are mine,” we want it to sound so right, so familiar, so easy to follow because it’s as if they’ve heard it all their lives. May they never remember a day when they did not worship the One True King.

Cold weather clothes are bulkier and take up more space. Second, I’m a girl! My makeup, beauty products, hair dryer, etc. are important!

Trying to remain silent for the other retreat guests, I lightly stepped across the threshold, and outside onto the deck to discover my three legged cat friend, Rosemary, curled up napping at the break of morning.

THE UMBRELLA OF SURRENDER

I “met” Jill Walker on our first facilitator coaching call this past spring. She had not led her team through the first half of the follow through process, and I remember her coming in feeling behind the other facilitators. I was drawn to her courage as she chose to jump in with her whole heart right from the start. Her choice to trust both God and this group of strangers was a beautiful example of surrender that certainly gave strength to her coach.
