Please find below an Easter Meditation for all year round by my good friend Melissa Haigh called, “The Day it All Went Down.” Read and enjoy.
Today is the day it all went down,
Last night it started.
The mock trial,
The Crown of Thorns!
The whipping while I was on all fours
The blood dripping
The stripping of my flesh….
Yes, I do remember it well
My weeping at Gethsemane
My blood dripping,
The angels visiting,
My “friends”, “family” not able to stand with me,
Sleeping, not praying…no strength.
Then the shemozzle,
Peter’s sword…. ear bursting, spraying blood,
Everyone falling to the ground to the words,
The young man running naked
Yes, I remember, ……but with no pain, no regret
The walk through My Beloved City
Bound, Captive, Burdened, Mutilated
BY CHOICE, BY LOVE
Collapsing – there- just no strength!
Then, precious Simon came
And came all the way to Golgotha
The pain of the nails….
Was nothing to the pain in my heart
Seeing Mary suffering,
But, there was no other way!!
That pain……was physical
The greater pain……was my Father’s face turned away…
It pierced deep, so deep – ETERNALLY deep.
Even to my last Breath
I offered life
To the thief who asked…
To Mary… who didn’t,
To John…. who obeyed.
IT WAS FINISHED!!
The price was paid!
IT WAS DONE!!
Forever, precious men and women
HOSANNA! SAVE US! WAS DONE!
Lucifer! Finally defeated!!
3 Days – setting beloved free
3 Days – opening Prison Doors
3 Days – Unlocking chains
Then – I myself released by Father’s Power
BACK TO LIFE
Standing in the Garden,
Stone rolled away by angels.
Mary came!!! Oh, so precious,
She is so sweet – so astounded – so glad it was her who saw me first!
Then my men came!
Dumbfounded, struck with awe, incredulity
Bowed, kneeling, sobbing
Tears, Joy, Fear Gone!
When I put Thomas’s hand in my side – a “bit of a Party Trick”
He, I so loved- forever Thomas is now mine
I know what each of them needed
Just like I do you….
Just like they were born for that appointed time in History….
So are you… this is your time…
Follow me, walk as you do…this is your time….
I have prepared you for this time….
RUN! RUN! RUN!
As Peter did……. RUN!
Joy be your trademark
When you are with me….
Let your sound be JOY, JOY, JOY!
I love to hear your laugh
With JOY deep from within, it
Brings much Joy to me
Makes that pain so worth it all….
Seeing you enjoy My life, My Presence
My Assignments, My Creation
YOU BRING ME GREAT JOY!!
