Day 15 of 40 Days of Lent
Day 15 is all about hope, which is cool, because so is Jesus.
“Jesus said to him, ‘Get up, take up your bed, and walk.” John 5:8
Sometimes I really don’t get this God/Jesus thing. Look at the invalid of 38 years. He prayed for 38 years to be make whole. 38 years is a long time, y’all! But then one day, out of the blue, Jesus showed up, and He made him well.
I don’t always know why things go the way they go. In fact, most of the time I don’t know. I don’t always like how things go. Again, that happens a lot, but I do know this…Jesus always shows up, out of the blue, and He always meets us where we are.
In our brokenness.
In our hopelessness.
In our desperateness.
The Author and Creator of all things knows exactly what He is about. He is never late, nor is He ever early. He is always right on time, whether it seems like it to us or not.
There is a purpose that reaches far beyond our human ability to comprehend.
Don’t lose hope.
He will show up.
Out of the blue.
