this is what i'll be praying
joy is what i’ll cling to
hope is what i’ll sing
faith is what will move me
and it is love that you
continue to bring

Yesterday our church celebrated Palm Sunday.
We remembered Jesus’ triumphant entry as He rides into Jerusalem on the back of donkey.
Of course this is what Jesus does.
He does everything different.
A King enters in humility to the sounds of cheering voices, a shout of celebration and truth.
The people yell, Hosanna.
This means, save us.
They have heard the stories of how Jesus has changed the lives of countless individuals and
now they beg Him to do this to theirs.
And He does.
But it doesn’t happen how we think it will, just like we didn’t expect Jesus to arrive on the back of a donkey.
In the days leading up to Good Friday and Easter I do not want to forget to say Hosanna.
This week I’ll be praying Hosanna.
