Resurrection Joy

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:2

Good morning, dearest reader! This weekend we celebrate a glorious event. The resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! To celebrate, I want to give one of my commenters a Kindle ebook, Women of Easter, by Liz Curtis Higgs. All you have to do is tell me what you plan to do to celebrate.

I will announce the winner Thursday, April 13, at 12:00 eastern.

Thanks to all those participating in the giveaway. With the help of Random.org, we have a winner…Melissa Henderson!

He is Risen 2017

He Is Alive!

 

He Is Alive

Every year around spring a joy begins bubbling inside me. The earth is warming. Flowers are blooming. Birds are singing. My world is teeming with life once more.

Resurrection!

Unfortunately, one can’t think of the Resurrection without the days prior—the seemingly endless nights—when hope faded to disappointment.

When Fear and Doubt boldly stepped from the shadows brandishing their weapons of destruction.

“He said he was the Son of God.”

“He healed the sick, calmed the sea, and delivered the possessed but could not save himself.”

“Who will help you now?”

“Time to face the truth. You are alone.”

“He’s not coming back.”

Today…

The battle rages. The mind bends beneath the load. The spirit cries out.

No answer. You are alone.

But then someone testifies, “I have seen the Lord. He is alive. We are not alone!”

The Son appears. The shadows flee.

Resurrection!

Your heart ignites.

He is:

The Rose of Sharon

The Lily of the Valley

The Son of God

The Prince of Peace

Sacrificial Lamb

Deliverer

Savior

Victor

Returning King

Alive!
