"The Lord is with me, like a mighty champion."
I love the image of God as my Champion! Sadly, in our world, many "champions" have fallen mightily and proved themselves very human in their faults and failings. They may taint our view of a champion. But, God as our champion will never let us down! The trick for us is to turn to God, our Champion, continuously through our days. This Sunday, Palm Sunday, begins such a holy and spiritually rich time for us. God, who is always in our corner, needs us to accompany Jesus all through this Holy Week. Our Champion needs us to celebrate the triumphant ride into Jerusalem, attend the Last Supper feast, stay with Jesus through the agony in the garden, walk with him along the sad road to Calvary, and stand watch with him as he suffers on the cross. God is our Champion...and God needs us. Let's make plans to spend a very holy Holy Week! Love, heidi
