Music Mondays- A Woman/Faithful by Amy Grant and Ellie Holcomb

Imagine watching as the man who delivered you of seven demons, welcomed you into his group of friends, brought healing to your life, and took you from outcast to member of his group, die on the cross. Imagine how you would feel.

Now picture yourself being her at the empty tomb feeling confused and distraught eyes full of tears so you can’t see straight. A man asks you, “Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for?”

You don’t recognize him because of the tears in your eyes. Then he says your name:

Jesus said to her, “Mary.”

When he says your name, you immediately know who it is.

She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” 

Then he tells you to go tell the men.

That was the experience of Mary Magdalene the first Easter Sunday morning. Jesus bestowed upon her the honor of being the first to see him after his resurrection.

I love this song which is about the experience of Mary Magdalene that first Easter Sunday.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Wonderful song. It is so refreshing to see so smany young women ready to go and speak. I was too afraid, and it just wasn’t accepted in the South. It still isn’t always, but I try to speak through my blog. Thank you for this wonder.

  2. “I have seen the Lord”, those words remind me that when we see Him work and know Him for ourselves no one can take that away from us. Great song, thanks! 🤗

  3. Touching song! Every time I read the account of Mary Magdalene seeing the Risen Jesus, I feel goosebumps. The feelings of her experience remain as fresh as a new day.
