sarahfmartin On this Good Friday might we of course take time in quiet reflection of the cross. But might we ALSO go about life TODAY surrounded in praise because the vail was TORN when Jesus died. We have access to praise the King and come into His presence even in the mundane of our day. We look toward the resurrection and we RISE UP! because Jesus rose FIRST. It is, in fact, a Good Friday. #JustRISEUP 3w

sarahfmartin As a way of keeping my focus during this week--Holy Week--I'm asking God to show me each day a fresh revelation of who Jesus is. Might I share with you?
You see, as we celebrated Palm Sunday, I was reminded that those who actually waved palms and spread cloaks and shouted Hosanna, Hosanna-God, Save us!--were looking for a King to over throw Roman oppression. A KING--Yes!-- but Jesus fulfilled a greater, broader, Kingdom agenda--to be the Lamb who takes our place in judgement of our utmost HOLY God. The GOD who stands HOLY and LOVING. Both.
I thought about how often I want Jesus to be a certain person to me, a particular fulfillment of my heart. I live with preconceived notions of who I want Him to be. Oh but the greater Kingdom PICTURE.
Today, I'm reminded that Jesus is HUMBLE and MIGHTY. BOTH. Is this even possible? In a greater, Kingdom picture view, yes it is possible it is real. He IS the humble man who walked the earth to love, serve, heal, wash our feet, sacrificed on the cross. He is ALSO the MIGHTY GOD who conquered death and worthy of our adoration and praise. He is BOTH.

sarahfmartin Had to move my "office" up to the bed while I ice my back and the carpet cleaners clean and the painters paint and the handyman fixes my kitchen sink and dishwasher. I don't do well with life upheavals and better get a grip cause it's going to upheave much more this summer when we move. One thing I've learned about myself in the last week: I don't do well when life is turned upside down. I slip away from the throne of the King when I don't have my "quiet space" and that is not good. Why? Because that is life. Life turns upside down and I can't allow upside down and topsy turvy to derail pin point focus on Jesus. So I must do the thing I know to do: set very focused time through out the day to circle back and have conversations with Him so He can keep me straight. There you go friends, my real and raw for the day... 1mon
  •   officialjennifereaton I feel us Sarah! We just got orders to go back to Ft. Bragg in TWO WEEKS! We have a lot to do on this end before we move, plus getting a house and setting up before baby comes in 2 months!! One thing I have learned is that the Lord knew all along and He goes before us and paves the way. All we need to do is walk in the path he laid out for us. I'll be praying for you! Keep us in your prayers too!!! 1mon
  •   officialjennifereaton I feel YOU* 1mon

sarahfmartin Running around cleaning and managing contractors in a house that needs work cause we've loved it for 10 years. Well and because I'm admittedly not the best house keeper. At least looking cute in my #garmetcollective tee that says Redemption For All. Ethically made by @garmentcollective. Thanks @breenaholt!!! 1mon

sarahfmartin I love how women all over the world are joining together to Return, Repent, Remember during Lent. Oh these words by @biblewilliams make my heart quicken: "I want to pray those words like Jesus prayed — not because I feel like praying but because I know and believe in the goodness and holiness of the One to whom I pray.
I want to give God glory in each and every thing, even when it hurts.
I want to desperately depend on God for my provision on the great days and the awful days.
I want to seek God’s will above my own, even when I don’t understand it.
I want to pray for God’s Kingdom to come — both in the Now and in the Not Yet." If you haven't checked out @SheReadsTruth yet go do it like...now...

sarahfmartin Though my hair is bottle red, I do have Irish blood. St. Paddy's Day always reminds me of my sweet grandmother who lived proud of her Irish roots. This week I'm doing a lot of hard things. Like physically hard and emotionally hard. Some people might be able to tackle this mountain no problem. But this is my weak spot. My Grandmother, though not always full of flowery words or snuggles, she was my cheerleader even in her sweet old age of 90! Oh she loved that her granddaughters are Aggies and I know that she would love that we are headed back to Aggieland.
So...Happy St. Patrick's Day friends. Keep doing the hard things. God is good. That mountain is not too big when you climb with your hands open to Jesus.
