Passion Week Experience – My Journey In Words

Posted on

IMG_6580

As we approach the weekend that Christians remember the death of Jesus and celebrate His resurrection, our church offers a self-guided journey through that stations of the cross. I went yesterday and took my time at each station and soaked in all I could. I didn’t want to miss a thing God had for me. It was very moving and meaningful.

My mind is cluttered these days, like eye balls spinning around in their sockets cluttered, so as I began this journey I just felt that writing down single words would help me reign in my thoughts and enable me to process in snippets. I didn’t think about the words, I just wrote them down as they came to me.

The stations along the journey were:
Hand Washing
Last Supper
Pieces of Silver
His Cross
Instruments of Suffering
Garden of Gethsemane
Oil and Spices
Torn Curtain
Our Cross

Here are my journey words that I wrote along the way through Christ’s journey as he made His way to the cross to die for me- and you.

“Following Jesus is not about better, faster, stronger, higher. It is about recognizing our helplessness, admitting our guilt, and receiving His sacrifice on our behalf. Everything depends on the crucifixion and resurrection. Everything. That means nothing is left to depend on us. Grace is something we receive, not something we earn.” Second Baptist Church Houston, second.org

My prayer in sharing my journey is that someone will find something in these words that helps them take a step closer to the cross. If you’re reading this and you have questions about, please ask. I’m no a theologian or scholar but I know what I’ve experienced. If I don’t know the answer to your questions I will do my best to find out. If I do know, I will answer with grace and non-judgmental love.

About Andrea

I'm a stumbling pilgrim and gatherer of stories. Stories about Jesus and how He gave His life for me, sustains me and redeems me... even though...
