We don’t typically talk a lot about Saturday in the church. We spend plenty of time on Good Friday, which of course we should…but what about Saturday? It seems like a day when nothing is happening. In reality, it’s a day full of questioning, doubting, wondering and definitely waiting. It’s a day when we wonder if God is asleep at the wheel or simply powerless to do anything about our current problems.

While we don’t spend a lot of time talking about Saturday, so much of our life here on this earth is lived out feeling trapped in “Saturday”.

This quote is from an article by Pete Wilson called ‘Stuck in Saturday” in Relevant magazine that struck a chord in me. He’s right. We don’t talk about Saturday. We have Maundy Thursday services, we have Good Friday services and of course the big event, Easter. And whats funny about that is, most of the year we live in “Saturday” and yet we don’t really focus on it when it comes to this season of the church calendar. I can name a handful of things that for a long time I questioned why they were happening in my life at the time and looking back now, I have answers. The times in which my questions get answered are much fewer than when they don’t. I know there will be questions I will never get answered while on this earth and that can be a really hard place to be. Even believing that God has all things worked out for the good for those who love Him. It is still very hard to wonder and have all theses questions. All the things that just don’t seem fair. Thankfully I know God is bigger than any of my doubts or questions, that’s where I find freedom in “Saturdays”.
