I’ve been thinking about this phrase a lot since Easter Sunday.
I’m not a spiritual guru, but I’d like to share what that this story means to me.
In the spiritual story, Friday was crucifixion day when bad things happened to Jesus on the cross, but 2 days later He arose from the grave and that’s why we celebrate Easter. During that time period. the Friday was a bad day because of the things that Jesus had to go endure on the cross, but today we call it Good Friday because all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
I haven’t been able to get the saying, it’s Friday but Sunday’s coming out of my mind since Easter. What I’ve realized is that in every day life we’re going to have our “Fridays” or be in the valley of life, but no matter how bad our “Friday’s”( valleys) are our “Sundays” are coming. If we hide God’s word in our heart like the Bible tells us to do, if we learn and grow from our past “Fridays” (valleys) and gain wisdom and knowledge, we can guide ourselves through our next “Friday”. In our “Fridays” we learn how important it is to not just “talk the talk”, but “walk the walk.” Meaning that we have to take all that we have learned and lead by example by applying it! All my life I’ve heard the phrase “A month of Sundays”. I have no idea what that literally means, but now to me, it has meaning. When we get through the “Fridays” (valleys), I know that it’s all going to be ok and the month of “Sundays” that we will have will be a glorious!
Some of what I’ve learned from my “Fridays” is
*God holds us in the palm of his Hands. Isaiah 49:46.
Not only does He hold us in the palm of His hands, he has our names etched in the palm of hands. Isaiah 49:16 I learned that from the Isaiah bible study! I knew I liked that name. I have a precious student named Isaiah that taught me a lot this week too 😊
16 See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;
*Romans 8:28 that I shared above
*23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for though art with me; they rod and thy staff they comfort me. (Google what the rod and staff refer to in the Bible)
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
I shared a couple of posts ago about a song that really spoke to me when I was growing up. It was on a CD and I had to order a DVD player from Amazon hahaha but I was able to listen to it. I’ll try my best to put a link to it here. Just listen to the words and ignore the shaky video 🤣
The Bible is referred to as the living word of truth. That’s why we have to read and re-read it every single day because when a scripture helps on one day in certain situation, it’s for that situation, that day. On a a different day it could mean something else. Thinking about all of this led me back to a very special Easter on April 17th, 2022 when my son and I sat down at the kitchen table and had a really good God conversation. The more “spiritual people” would call it a
divine appointment. I posted about it on May 17th, 2022. When I went back and reread that post, it was exactly what I needed to hear to help me get through what I’m going through today.
The Bible also talks about the Armour of God, meaning symbolically, we should put on the Armour of God to fight our battles. The word of God is like a sword (of the spirit.) Jesus took my place on the cross, was buried, rose again and now sits at the right hand of the Father. He’s already fought my battles and won. If I follow Him, I’ll win them too.
The other pieces of God’s Armour are found in Ephesians 6:10-20
We also pray! As Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father, he also intercedes for us through the Holy Spirit!
My aunt shared the following scripture just this week….
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
God is good and so faithful through every situation!!!
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone reading. Thank for letting me share.
