Good Friday

Good Friday.
The darkest day in the history of the world.
And yet, the very goodest day in the history of the world!

Light and dark.
Day and night
Peace and Chaos
Joy and pain

The world is full of contradictions.  
It’s all about the choices we make.
That’s what life is, the choices we make.

Do I choose to eat or not to eat?
Do I choose to stay awake or go to sleep?
Do I choose to hate?
Do I choose to forgive?

It’s about the choices Jesus made.
And on Good Friday he made the hardest decision any man ever had to make.
That choice tilted the world on its side and forever changed the way men and God interact.

He chooses to love me.
I choose to love him
He will never leave me.
Why would I want to leave him?

He makes me complete.
He answers all my questions
He fills me with himself, with pure joy!
He tells me things and offers me chances to share what he tells me with others.

I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black
It’s hard to dance with the devil on your back
They buried my body and they thought I’d gone
But I am the dance and I still go on!

They cut me down and I lept up high
I am the light that will never, never die
I’ll live in you if you'll live in me
I am the Lord of the dance said he!

Dance, then, wherever you may be
I am the Lord of dance said he
And I’ll lead you all, wherever you may be

And I’ll lead you all in the dance said he.

Please have the most blessed and joy filled Resurrection Sunday Ever!

Amen! Beautiful post and so true! About 10 years ago or so I think I really liked that song--haven't heard it in quite a while! Thanks for reminding me of it!
