Into your hands… (Remembering God on the Cross)

Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:45-46)

What is your cry to God, now?

The week has been hard, God. I don’t understand it. This is your season, when we remember you. Yet it has been full of stress and ceaseless activity.

What I have to do seems to be unending. Wearying burdens.

Please, Jesus remember me. I want to know true rest.

Amen
