We are on week 17 and week 18 of the JOSHUA CODE - two this week, because last week catching up on life post my sisters beautiful wedding was exhausting!
Here is last weeks and this weeks verses:
w e e k - s e v e n t e e n
"Jesus wept." - John 11:35
. . .
JESUS WEEPS OVER OUR SORROWS - He is touched by our broken hearts
JESUS WEEPS OVER OUR SINS - He is troubled by our blinded eyes
'The last time tears are mentioned in the Bible is the Revelations 21:4. It reveals a beautiful scene: "God will wipe away every tear from their eyes." This is our hope. [...] King David said it best: "For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning" (Psalm 30:5).
As you memorize this verse this week, meditate on the fact that we have a Lord who is not far off and removed. He is very near. He is the One who is touched by our broken hearts and weeps with us. And He is the One who is troubled by our blinded eyes and weeps over us.
These two little words speak volumes: "Jesus wept."
It's ok to cry.

"I am the resurrection and the life.
He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live."
John 11 : 25

LIFE'S BOTTOM-LINE QUESTION IS PERSONAL - Do YOU believe this?
LIFE'S BOTTOM-LINE QUESTION IS POINTED - Do you BELIVE this?
LIFE'S BOTTOM-LINE QUESTION IS PRECISE - Do you believe THIS?
Note: Martha's reply in the next verse:
"Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world" (John 11:27).
As you memorize this verse, meditate on Martha's reply. Would you join her by simply professing to Him, "Yes, Lord, I believe that You are Christ!" And then you will begin the great adventure for which you were created in the first place.
