Why do we call this day “good Friday?” This is the day we honor the biggest sacrifice in human history, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. That doesn’t sound good at all. The truth is, this day should be called “A Better than Good Friday” celebration of the biggest, greatest love ever—The Best Friday.
I have a small job each week singing for a small, nondenominational church in Miami Shores. During the service, today, the pastor explained that Jesus wasn’t able to be crucified by the elders of the church, though they secretly wanted him dead. It was the government of Rome that had to accuse and convict Jesus of Nazareth of a horrible crime, something terrible enough to deserve death. Even Caesar couldn’t find enough evidence for the non-crime of people calling him the king of the Jews. But the crowds grew larger and became louder, yelling, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” What made the church change its mind? Just two days before, they were laying palms on the ground in front of Jesus to honor their Lord.
My pastor exclaimed, “It was the corrupt church that urged the equally corrupt government to do the will of the Sadducees and Pharisees.”
My pastor is bolder than I. His perspective suggested that the church better stop looking to government to lead or guide them. Both will then be corrupt, and “blind will be leading the blind.”
On a day like today, we need to be looking past the sacrifice of the unblemished lamb. We must keep our eyes focused on the annihilation of sin and death in Jesus’s travel to hell and then rising to heaven.
Yes, this is a bright new day for Jesus’s true followers of truth and compassion and love. Jesus said himself that two will be standing in the field. One will be accepted into the kingdom and the other won’t. He further says that if you rob, cheat, treat your neighbor poorly, kill, even lust after your neighbor’s possessions, you will rob yourself of the kingdom.
I will rejoice when I know that evil is under foot and Good Friday is over forever. What’s even better than good Friday?
The best Sunday—when the tomb is emptied of death, deception, judgment, greed, perversion, and not treating your neighbor as yourself.
Are you looking for help with anxiety or are you bored at home.
Try this yoga practice below on YouTube I made just for this purpose or give me a call for a 10 minute consultation. I’d love to work through your stress at this time with you.
The process is so simple, it doesn’t make sense that it could result in such a vast change in mind. You could do some seated yoga. I actually made 3 different yoga videos on YouTube you could go to now and enjoy how great you’ll feel if you spend just a little time getting your body free of stress. But, I can’t do it for you. This article about it can make you do it. You must be a self-started at home, as well as work. Set your mind to a clear schedule of things to do. This would be a brilliant time to learn a new language or clean out the closets.
DON’T FORGET ABOUT PEACE OF MIND
We give away our peace of mind every time we react emotionally to inevitable change. Peace is yours to keep, not give away. So, if you are not experiencing peace, it’s up to you to share why you are anxious with yourself by carrying on a self dialogue. Yes, that’s right. Question yourself. Work it out together with all the parts of your mind (the good, bad, and the ugly). These are the times when we will be closest to our loved ones and also have a great deal of alone time. Use it to your spiritual and physical advantage.
Some friendly reminders about Peace:
Psychology Today says that “it’s not bad to have negative thoughts …
We just have to stop believing them!” (Change your unhealthy thought process to a positive connection with Hypnotherapy.)
You will always find all the coaching, compassion, and peace of mind you need at Hypnosis on Las Olas with 31 years of experience. You can find what we do? and How we do it here.
The Physiology of Hypnotherapy:
By going into a subconscious, light sleep or trance, a hypnotists helps find the pathways connecting your outside stimulus to your negative thoughts (food, smoking, anxiety). The work begins in the frontal cortex of your brain!
Disconnect the root cause (stress, relationship problems, no quality ME time) at the foot of the pathway (the place where our response to triggers happens) and build a healthy, new pathway to positive outcomes in your life—a new story for tomorrow.
