'The Sovereign LORD has opened my ears, and I have not been rebellious; I have not drawn back.
I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting.
Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame. He who vindicates me is near.'
Some thoughts as we approach Easter:
– The last few weeks have made themselves fuller and more busy than I'd anticipated, and I don't feel ready for Lent to end.
– I now realise why we eat chocolate at Easter – because we've been fasting, of course! I am looking forward to keeping the Feast.
– Spring is here. Things are growing. Life is starting (see previous post).
– The world is far too complicated. Jesus loves me.
