Natural Design of Palm Sunday....

There are seasons in life, that just take my breadth away. This week is one of them. Today is Palm Sunday. This post has everything to do with my personal design. Very personal. So fair warning if you don't want to get involved quit reading now.

Years ago, though brought up in a church I understood only the concept of God, not the God who is personal. It was design that made it all make sense. God makes sense out of chaos, like a designer does. 

Today, stands in the moment of history where Yahweh, Yeshua, Jesus... obeyed and decided to enter the city where he knew he would find his horrible death while knowing  his Father would turn his back. Why, because he loved me and knew I couldn't take the pain. Why, because he knew he would overcome death by being resurrected and forever give us hope and stand with us if only we believe in him. Why because that is what he was born to do. His natural design.

A week and half ago, my husband injured his back, but found out he had cancer. We don't have all the answers, but we do have God. He is in control, and he has a plan, and he wants us to serve him by helping others.  We just have to trust him. Just like at the first Easter. On Palm Sunday He rode into the city triumphantly knowing that the battle would be won. 

Reality is that by design, as soon as we are born our bodies start to die. We are to live each day as if it is our last and not take anything for granted.  Our lives are not our own to do what we please if we are believers, our whole purpose by His design is "so that" others can know the love of God. Otherwise as my mentor and pastor David Chadwick has said life is just a big "so what".

Me, I cannot fathom living life with "so what" mantra,  choosing "so that" is the only way to go.
