Lent Day 24- help me ( day by day, step by step)

Setting your face like flint

you turned your face towards Jerusalem,

despite the pain that awaited you,

were you truly aware of all that was to come?

On the way

you taught, you wept, you challenged,

you kept going,

day by day, step by step….

you kept going…

betrayed, beaten,

bruised and bloodied,

you held firm,

flint face bowed beneath a crown of thorns,

still you held firm…

drinking in life’s sorrows

you kept going,

you held firm,




until your final breath….


man of sorrows,

I know I can bring you my sorrows,

my griefs,

my pains and the disturbances of my heart,

and you will not reject me,

but will help me to embrace them,

for it is only in keeping going,

holding firm,

and walking through

this valley

that I will find life anew…


this is my hope,

death overcome,

because you kept going,

you held firm,

help me now

to walk with you…

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
