By All Songs & Daughters and the message in it encouraged me. It talks about the saturday in between the friday and the sunday Jesus rose from the grave. No body talks about this specific saturday really. Imagine all the hope Jesus brought to his people and his disciples, all the peace, wisdom and clarity to life as they walked with Him. Then all of a sudden Jesus was crucified on the cross. The song speaks about what His people probably felt during this entire day. Where would they go, what would they do? All they had was a “promise like a thread, holding them, keeping them from fraying at the edge” That promise was that He’d come back. But until He did, they had to wait.
We all have those moments, like myself, I am waiting. Waiting for Jesus, waiting for my husband, waiting for so many things promised. But Just like his disciples held on to that promise, its what kept them together during the wait. And what you learn in between is the most important because it will be what will keep you together and what will allow you to grow before you get the promise. Jesus said He’d be back and that sunday HE ROSE.
"All we knew, all we knew
is you said you’d come again
You’d rise, you’d rise up from the dead
There was a day we looked for proof
That you had risen from the tomb
And all our doubts began to roll away
We touched the scars upon your hands
You kept your word, Son of Man
You buried death by taking on the grave
You came here to save us
'Cause everything was lost
No longer empty handed
Clinging to the cross”
Everything He says comes to life, all we have to do is find the peace we need within HIM as we wait to get our promises. Its a beautiful thing.
Currently learning, currently waiting and falling more in love with His ways,
