A short Disclaimer

As we enter "Holy Week" I am contemplating sin, our part in the cross, and what this means for me. Therefore, my posts may be a bit more somber and personally challenging that usual. Its important for me to sit in this moment and I hope you will walk with me through it.

i'm glad you are doing this. i watched "The Passion of the Christ"
for the first time last night...with the youth group. we processed the movie by walking a labyrinth and going to 3 powerfully reflective stations. I was glad to have that opportunity because I felt shell shocked by the movie. sometimes it's hard for me to connect with the gravity of my sin. My mean words and pettiness often takes a more subtle tone than those of the crowds who spit on Jesus...but they are just as inner attitudes need constant doses of living water. One question that helped me do that is to ask myself how my life (and the life of those i love) would have been different, and would be different now, if i REALLY laid down every ounce of bondage and sin and lived in his total freedom.....if i had been obedient in erevything i knew He was asking me to do or say, or think... i'm still processing this. i can't do it without the work of the Holy Spirit. Come Lord Jesus.

O Lord, you have searched me and You know me...Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can i flee from Your presence? See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me to the way everlasting. (from psalm 139)
