It’s true. I got behind in our family’s Bible reading plan almost immediately.
Jeremy and the boys are soaring through Mark and I’m fiddling around with chapter 15.
So I sat down yesterday to dive in. To catch up.
“There were also women looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome. When he was in Galilee, they followed him and ministered to him, and there were also many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.” (Mark 15:40,41)
If the Bible’s Facebook, these ladies just got tagged.
And I hear Martina McBride’s “This one’s for the girls” playing in the background of Mark’s Instastory.
These women had been with Jesus. They’d walked that long (LONG) journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. They’d ministered to him as He ministered.
They were the last at the cross. The first at the tomb.
They were Moms. They were followers. They were His.
Ladies…”This one’s for the girls.”
You. Your little girls. Your grown ones. The little girls you dream of raising.
God has a place for each of us.
At home. At work. At church. At school.
In our neighborhoods. Grocery stories. Living rooms.
Wherever He is leading you, be all there. Wherever He is leading them, trust His plan.
Cross grace offers future grace for all of us.
