1. I’m seeing those faithful women with new eyes today. I had never before transferred the concept of their “showing up” for Jesus on that horrible day with my own tendency to throw in the towel when things don’t go as I expected. Thanks, Rachel.

  2. Renewing my commitment to remain faithful as these women did. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for your beautiful example of sacrificial love. Thank you for this post and your blog, Rachel. Happy, Blessed Easter!

      How wonderful you’re renewing your commitment, Elizabeth, as we celebrate the new life Jesus has given us.

  3. God has always had a heart for women. He sees their tears and is there to calm the fears like Jesus did the sea. I can’t imagine being there! The Holy Spirit is moving in the body of Christ, as faithful women let’s remain true and watch Him resurrect our hopes and dreams.

  4. Beautiful, Rachel. Heartbreaking and life giving all in one. Thank you for giving me this perspective today.

  5. Rachel, I needed this reminder of true faithfulness today. I am learning that things will not go as planned more often than not as Christ promises tribulations. I want to practice that same faithfulness as the women at the cross so that I can accomplish all that God has planned for my life to glorify Him. I hope you had a wonderful Easter and have blessed week!

  6. What a wonderful post, Rachel. I rest in the finished work of Christ on the cross…His unconditional love surrounds me…the Niagra Falls of the Holy Spirit flows through me wasting away all my disappointment when things don’t go as planned…praise His Holy Name Above All Names! Many blessings to you ❤️

  7. Thank you for insights I never thought about in this familiar, beautiful story. The faithfulness to serve and love Jesus even when they didn’t understand and were in the midst of shock and grief gives hope and something to aspire to. Joining you from Purposeful Faith and Intentional Tuesday.

  8. “Even if you are struggling to understand events in your life, or you feel God is distant or he has let you down, know that loyalty to Jesus Christ is rewarded with greater privilege and responsibility.”
    This is what touched me the most! Loyalty to Jesus! What does that look like for me? Drawing near to His word in life’s uncertain circumstance. Drawing near to Him in prayer when I feel alone or that special someone never seems their going to get it. Thanks for sharing. visiting from Holley’s link up #49

  9. Great post, Rachel. I thank God for His amazing faithfulness each day. What an example of what faithfulness means…that He gave His Son…put Him through those horrible things…just for you and me.
    Thanks for linking up with Grace and Truth.

  10. Look for God’s fingerprints in all things the good, the bad, the ugly because He is present

  11. The wonder of the Lord’s faithfulness to me in every detail of life is truly miraculous. He has given me all I need and my heart is all He wants to occupy and transform my inner being. May I seek Him above all else and find the joy, peace and even happiness as I trust Him and continue to follow Him each day.
