The Journey—day 7

There are times when I simply cannot wrap my brain around what God does. Today is one of those days, and today’s scriptures are one of those scripture. I mean, how could a loving God actually be pleased to sacrifice his son? As a parent, I cannot get my mind past the sacrifice of a son. What exactly does it mean that God was pleased by that? Is He some sado-masochistic God who takes pleasure in watching His Son die? Even more difficult to understand since we know the Son is also the Father.

I know the point made in this scripture is about God’s pleasure in providing a way for us to be with Him for eternity. When I consider the enormous cost of His sacrifice, I am humbled that He loves me enough, in spite of my enormous flaws, to make the sacrifice.

Lord, please help me to understand Your word and Your ways, and help me not to take for granted Your Gift of Salvation.

I am a musician, an engineer, a mentor; my desire is to leave things better than I found them; I am a sister, daughter, wife, mother, aunt, friend. Suicide breaks my heart; Cancer breaks my heart; Human trafficking breaks my heart; Seeing people make bad life decisions breaks my heart. I am thankful for the One True and Living God who saved me from myself and, through His Son Jesus Christ, has saved from my sins; I am confidently persistent, passionately determined and boldly creative so that I may inspire others to live a life that ultimately matters.
