the world in waiting on Saturday; a reminder. / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

the world in waiting on Saturday; a reminder.

as we're waiting for resurrection Sunday, one thought comes to mind. 
it seems to be a repeated theme in the Bible that God will make a way when there seems like there is no other way.

all of those moments signaled the end.

I find it interesting that in the moments leading up to these crucial climactic points in their stories, God seemed to be silent.

we see in moments of hardships that no one understood why or what was happening.

evil looked like it had won.

and then,
the glorious, miraculous, splendor of His plan starts to unravel in a way that no one saw coming.

throwing the evil one off its course.
showing darkness that Light will always triumph.

Saturday in the Easter story is such a great reminder of this. I’m sure the disciples felt like their world was crumbling on Saturday, like their very purpose was dissolving before their eyes as they remember what they saw the day before.

and though Jesus assured them that this was God’s plan, the human flesh just could not understand why death played a part.

the earth was silent on Saturday,
but the gates of hell were broken on this day.
death no longer held a sting.

& tomorrow, the Savior would once again appear, having overcome the world, that we may have a personal relationship with Him. He paid the price so we may approach the Father and feel the goodness of God.

so in earthly seasons of despair, may we hold fast to His promises and trust His plan. Sunday is coming friends, are you ready?
