in silence

I sit in silence as I write.  I sit in silence as does scripture in telling the story of this day.  I sit in silence as did all of creation on that sacred Sabbath that followed Jesus’ death and preceded His glorious resurrection.  I sit in silence as Jesus did while being accused, mocked, degraded, brutally beaten, and, finally, crucified.

I cannot begin to fathom what those who loved and followed Jesus were experiencing on this day.  I cannot, because I look back at Saturday and see Sunday morning first.  I choose, today, to sit with those who had not yet seen Sunday.  I choose to experience: the unprecedented quiet which followed a force of suffering, separation and death which shook the earth and tore a 60-foot-tall, 30-foot-wide, 4-inch-thick curtain in two; the unrest and distress likely felt by those who loved Him most in this world; the profound challenge to hope which hung in their balance.

EVERYTHING is about to change, but it is not here yet.  It was finished, but it’s only getting started!  Redemption awaits its fulfillment; its breath of new life.

Resurrection belongs to each of us, but also belongs to tomorrow’s dawn.  Stay present in today.
