Made Well & Blueberry French Toast

Isaiah 53:5 (cev)

He was wounded and crushed because of our sins; by taking our punishment, he made us completely well.

Read

Completely well. Are those two words you’d ever use to describe yourself? I wouldn’t. Hot Mess. There’s 2 words I’d use. Screw up; another 2 words. But completely well? Not a description I’d think to give myself in a million years.

But God did. With Jesus’ beaten and lifeless body came a new description for me, and for you. Completely well. None of those things in our past matter, the things to come in our futures are instantly erased. Because of the Cross, we’re healed.

I think it’s important to note that each and every sin was paid for by the blood of Jesus. It wasn’t a “buy one get one” kind of deal. His death covered every sin you and I will ever commit; and He didn’t leave a single out.

Today is the day that we know the least about. Almost 2,000 years ago, Jesus’ followers, friends, and disciples were probably praying and grieving His death on the Sabbath day, unable to go out and visit His tomb. But when we couldn’t act or do, God was already acting and doing. In these very moments, our sins were being forgiven. And God was preparing the comeback of a lifetime… literally.

The day in between Jesus’ death and resurrection has me thinking a lot about the act of waiting and trusting the processes that I can’t see or understand. While the people were waiting, God was working. Something terrible and out of control had just happened, and everything they thought they believed about Jesus was turned upside down when He did in fact die. He told them it was coming, He warned them; yet they were still shocked and disappointed when it actually happened. What seemed like the worst day in the world would be followed by the best day – but in between was a day of waiting and wondering, doubt and disbelief.

It’s often the times that we can’t see or touch or feel where all the magic is happening. But because of the Cross, the uncertainty and waiting isn’t the end of our story. And because of God’s perfect plan, His perfect timing, we have been made completely well. When we wake up tomorrow, the tomb will be empty. Until then, we  have to fix our minds on what we know; He is good.

Write

What are you currently waiting on in your life? Is it possible that God is working in your waiting? Do you believe that incredible things can happen even when you can’t see them?

Pray

For unshakeable faith in the goodness of Jesus.
