Lent Day 40 – Peace and Tunnels

The light at the end of the tunnel is your life; the tunnel is temporary.

— Unknown —

It’s Holy Week…

For those unfamiliar with Holy Week, it occurred about 2000 years ago, when Jesus was celebrated as the Messiah on Palm Sunday (today).

Then, a few days later, he was unjustifiably beaten, tortured, and hung on a tree to die (Good Friday-this Friday).

Then, on Sunday (this Sunday – Easter), he defied all human logic and reason by rising from the dead so sinners like you and me could have new life–eternal.

Quote thought…

Jesus experienced what it felt like to journey through the darkest of tunnels. He went to hell and back to bring us new life, life-eternal, which death cannot conquer.

He journeyed through the worst of tunnels so we may have Him to give us Light to navigate our tunnels.

And with any life come tunnels.

Whether or not we have light in the tunnels and make the darkness temporary is determined by Who we turn to for help.

I always write from experience.

John 14:3, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.”

Journal your thoughts:

What am I grateful for today?

In what way(s) will I bring light to the world today?

What will I deny myself to draw closer to God and gain more peace in my life today?


God, I offer myself to Thee—To build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of life. May I do Thy will always! Amen. (Third Step Prayer – Chapter 5, pg.63, The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous)
