Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
    for I have put my trust in you.
Show me the way I should go,
    for to you I entrust my life.

Psalm 143:8 (NIV)




lead me to the place
where blood dripped from Your face
where You prayed
“Not my will, but Yours”.


lead me to the post
where your body was scourged
where flesh was torn
our griefs You bore.


lead me to the road
where You stumbled with Your load
where splinters probed
under fearsome burden You groaned.


lead me up the hill
where on the cross You were nailed
where blood and water spilled
there my sin was killed.


lead me to the cave
where You shrouded in linen lay
where behind the stone became
victory over death and the grave!


lead me to the place
where tears drip from my face
where Your gift of mercy and grace
pour over me in waves.


lead me to my knees
where my heart bleeds in belief
where your journey to death is stark reality
Your risen form unveils before me
And I weep basked in Your glory!

May you feel close to our Lord this week as we meditate on the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. May your heart be filled with peace overflowing and a joy in knowing He is not dead, He is risen, indeed.

From My Heart to Yours,


Lead Me Lord https://marciewbridges.com/?p=5555&preview=true #FollowingJesus #Easter #Poetry Click To Tweet
