Something Fresh from the Familiar

Thanks Jen for your post about Max Lucado and his words on this day, The Saturday of Silence.  I have often thought about this day and wondered: "What about Saturday?  There has to be something that God has for us on this day, too."  Well, today God revealed it to me through Max (via Jen).

Once again, I found the words to describe it while sitting in front of my facebook page.  Here is what I posted regarding my revelation on this Saturday of Silence.  

There is Good Friday & Resurrection Sunday, but have you ever thought about the day in the middle, the Saturday of Silence? Here again, as God does all throughout scripture, He uses this day of Silence as a parallelism to show us that we too have a day (time) of silence when ever we experience times of suffering and trials here on earth. But, there is always new life (resurrection life) at the end. Hallelujah! 

Ahhh, I love it when God reveals something to me that is Fresh from the Familiar!

Love what you wrote!!

What really touched me was knowing that Jesus understands that moment of silence! All too often I wonder if God is listening or hearing my prayers and to know that even Jesus had to wait and suffer really made an impact on me! Like I said it brought me to tears! And the hope that we will get our Sunday is just so comforting! Yes, Saturday is definitely significant!! But then again aren't even the smallest of details important to God?

Love you! Hope you and the boys are having a WONDERFUL Easter!
