Somehow, it’s already April, spring has arrived, Resurrection (Easter) Sunday has come and gone, time is flying by me, and yet, I have such feelings of peace, comfort, hope and a tremendous amount of gratitude.
Gratitude in knowing that the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is a gift from God and fulfillment of HIS promise. Peace in knowing that I have put my faith in Christ. Comfort in knowing that I will live forever in the presence of God, and hope for those who do not have a relationship with the Lord, to seek his presence and feel the love and grace that awaits them. As Christians, if there was ever a day that gives us hope it is Resurrection (Easter) Sunday…A celebration that Jesus is alive and has never-ending love for us!
On Resurrection (Easter) Sunday, while others may look forward to brightly colored eggs, chocolate Easter bunnies, wearing pastels, the smell of the Easter lilies, or enjoying a big meal surrounded by family and friends, as a Christian, I look forward to, and give thanks for, the Resurrection of Christ. In my belief, Easter is about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. His resurrection symbolizes the eternal life that is given to all who believe in him. Resurrection (Easter) Sunday means HE lives!
Whatever your beliefs or memories, Easter is a time of renewal and awakening…a new beginning. A time to reflect on the past, the present and the future of our lives. A time to rejoice and be grateful for the blessings we have been given. A time to celebrate our life and those in it. A time to look around and see the beauty of today!
God has a plan for you and God is watching over you. To everything, there is a season. With every season comes change. Are you ready to make that change to walk in the light of faith?
