Easter is our HOPE - Jesus is ALIVE AND WELL and seated at His Father's right Hand - making intercession for us. Can you hardly stand the blessings and joy of knowing that??? Many so-called gods/saviors have been born and died - but ONLY ONE - JESUS THE ONE AND ONLY rose and conquered sin, hell, and the grave. Hallelujah, He is Risen Indeed!
Another joy is my grandboy. I just got these pictures from my daughter-in-law. I've been outside gardening all morning (another JOY of mine...for I come to the garden ALONE and He walks with me and He talks with me, and He tells me I am His own...)
I mailed Zeke an Easter card and can you believe he is already reading it and he is not quite 8 months old? :) These pictures brought me out of the garden and into the house and straight to my blog to tell somebody -anybody - THERE IS HOPE! We hoped for more than 3 years that we would have a grandchild, and God showed Himself strong when my daughter-in-love became a mother after the doctors said she probably never would! No matter what you are facing today - here is HOPE - Jesus is our HOPE! His resurrection is PROOF OF THE HOPE He gives.
Proverbs 13:12 speaks of that hope and this verse brought me great hope through many seasons:
"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the longing is fulfilled, it is a tree of life."
The hope we have in what happened on that TREE as He bore our sins brings LIFE ETERNAL! As we gather tomorrow in our churches all across this country and sing of that HOPE, may you be blessed in knowing there is a HOPE beyond the grave. There is HOPE in daily living, there is a BLESSED HOPE and I know Him personally - His name is JESUS!
Hallelujah, What a Savior!
