This past weekend has been good for me - especially the all-night prayer. I was really encouraged by all the people who came and also by the participation of people through the night in prayer. I am grateful that God uses faith-filled prayers for His glory. While we might not see the results of our prayers immediately, we can be confident that God hears them all!
Also, watching the Passion was good for many people during the evening. I think it helped at least some people to re-focus their minds toward God. I always get choked up during the scene when Mary flashes back to when Jesus was a child and he falls. To think that Jesus was 100% man helps me to understand even more the torture of the cross.
Having said all this, I simply want to say that the Lord has brought me through this weekend by His grace. I say it that way because I see how dependent on me I have been, but God - always being gracious to me - continues to teach me (and guides me back towards Him). He is faithful and He wins me over again and again by His love!
May we all seek God's face, find His love and be amazed. "Perfect love casts out fear." ~ The Apostle John
