I find myself at a loss for words. It is time to write. Time to schedule my post for the week and there is nothing.
No matter what I try to reflect on, there is nothing there.
I tried reflecting of the gospel passage from the weekend. John 2…the wedding at Cana. Where Mary said to Jesus, “they are out of wine.” And he replied, “So. Why does that concern me?” I AM paraphrasing! But that is kind of the gist of that passage. John 2:1-12
Even though Jesus said his time hadn’t come, Mary, his mother, told the servants to “Do whatever he tells you.” verse 5.
She was pretty sure that he was going to SOMETHING.
I wonder about several things in this passage…
Did Mary tell the servants to do this, because she was his mother? Because she KNEW he would do something? Did she sense that something was about to change?
And what about Jesus and the disciples…why were they there? Were they ALL friends of the bride and groom? Or were the disciples tagging along with Jesus?
Whose wedding was it anyway?
Did the bride and groom sense that Jesus was something special? That he could make serious changes?
In verse 11, we are told that the disciples believed in him.
When they witnessed the miracle, they believed…the disciples were changed.
Thank you, Lord, for the power of YOU. For the change that you can bring about in our lives, when we believe in you. Thank you for making me realize that change, though hard, is worthwhile. It can bring joy after heartache. Lord, there are changes going on in my life that are a bit scary. They can be overwhelming, but I know that I am doing your will, following your lead and I know that with your help, I can be successful at these things. Thank you for these words in John.
