So we have come full circle. I have walked through the words of this prayer and confronted my own sins and weaknesses. I have seen the places I am tempted and come up short. I have asked to be washed clean and forgiven.
And now we look again at the One we have been praying to. That "Lord and Master" that we referenced way back at the beginning. And we see that He is not only Lord of my life, right now in the nitty gritty of being a mom in 2015. We see a glimpse of the eternal.
He is holy, set apart, unlike us but we get glimpses of His goodness in us. And who God is- is forever. As one of my kids used to say "No beginning and no end. "
My sloth, despair, lust of power, etc. will come and go. I will have struggles and then victory and one day I will go to another place where those things don't really matter.
But God, He is everlasting, without end.
And tonight we will see Him do what we can't fathom. We will see him conquer death.
All these sins that pull us away from him and taint our view of the world, He will overcome them all. He will trample them down. He will show that there is no darkness He cannot overcome.
When we go to church in the dark and wait for the light, we will remember this journey. As I have prayed, I have been changed. I am open to receive the Light, the Life.
