Reason to Rejoice!

Easter is new life.
Easter is God loving us enough to send His son.
Easter is Jesus Christ dying on the cross, buried for three days and rising again. 
Easter is an empty tomb.
Easter is resurrection and new life.
Easter is unfailing love and eternal hope.
Easter is a Joy-filled reason to rejoice!

“The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay”. “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. …God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. … Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation” ~ Matthew 28:5-6, Romans 5:1-2 , Romans 5:8, Romans 5:11 (NIV).

Rejoice, again I say rejoice!

Jesus Christ has conquered sin and death, rose again, and with open arms waits to receive all who will come to Him.

May this Easter bring you new life, new hope, and eternal joy through Jesus Christ!

Surrendering with +Ann Voskamp 
 
Hey Soul? Today can be a masterpiece if you choose the art of surrender. The day before Good Friday, look to the Cross & choose the art of surrender. 
Surrender to what He gives. Surrender to what is, knowing God is doing so much more than what is. The Cross is proof of God just that. What could be more unhelpful, insane, destructive, than defying what is now, God in this moment? 
The art of surrender is keeping yes on the lips all day. Say “yes” to Jesus, say "yes" to His will, Say "yes" to Him in the present moment and you always have the answer to the abundant life. Say yes to His will in the present moment -- and you will open the gift: amazing grace.

"Today isn't about straining for perfection in everything. It's about reaching for The Perfect One in everything." ~ +Ann Voskamp  
 
Hey Soul? Today isn't about maintaining control of everything. It's about maintaining your gaze on Him in the midst of everything. Today isn't about straining for perfection in everything. It's about reaching for The Perfect One in everything. Today isn't about getting through everything. It's about letting Him carry you through everything. Exhale. Abandon fears & abide in your Father. Just for today.

What if we truly believed? What if I truly believed? What if I let go of the plans and worries of tomorrow’s bank account, health, and social interactions, to interact with THE ONE who has the plans, who has our health in the palm of His hands, who is my provider, who is The One I need to have, long to have, MUST have. He is the One, THE ONLY ONE who fills my soul’s emptiness.

I’ll admit, I don’t think I dream big enough. I forget how BIG and AMAZING our God is, and how He uses weak humans in His divine plans. Ah to come to Him with the faith of a child, bright-eyed in wonder, ready to do whatever He calls us to do, ready to dream BIG. 
It’s fun to visualize safe in God’s arms, holding hands with my sisters and brothers-in-Christ, and leaping fearlessly into the plans God has for us. O what joy if we would all encourage, love on one another, and believe, truly believe, the amazing things that God has planned. And also remember that those BIG plans may be small in our eyes — from the love we give to our family members and friends, or it could be allowing the Holy Spirit free reign to work in us and through us in home and abroad. 

God is a BIG God with BIG plans!

Let’s never hinder God. So let’s truly believe. Let’s believe God — THE ONE who finds nothing impossible. The Creator of the universe, The One who loves with an unfailing love, The One who knows the plans He has for us, The One who is All in All.

Let’s believe God! 
 
“‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’” ~ Jeremiah 29:11 (NASB)

“We become victors by our dependence on God. The road to freedom seems to be a paradox. To experience victory and freedom we need to become captives. We need to develop minds captive to Christ. Victorious lives flow from victorious thoughts. Thinking victorious thoughts comes from setting our focus on a victorious God.” ~ Beth Moore

Proclaiming a strong faith is much easier than truly living a strong faith. When trials and difficulties come, we are given the opportunity to put feet to our faith. It’s not just talking about our faith but walking out our faith. It’s standing firm during those nasty trials of life. 

God has blessed us with another opportunity to not just walk by sight, but walk by faith. And I’ll be honest, it’s not always easy. But I know my redeemer lives. I know God will be faithful because God is faithful. And I can look back and see all the amazing ways He has provided, rescued, and redeemed every single nasty thing the enemy has tried to mess up. So we are choosing to rejoice, choosing to believe and trust, and choosing to keep our feet firmly planted in faith.

Join me?  

“Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith….” ~ 1 Corinthians 16:13  (NASB)

There’s snow in the middle of Holy Week. A dusting, a sugar snow, an Easter snow. As if the whole smashed world is intent on freezing. Doing whatever it takes, over and over again, to stay numbed to the burn of the pain. Because somebody’s beloved kid had a womb s

Story
Introduction
I'm a joyfully in love with God, Christ-follower, a happily-married writer, and mom. I'm not perfect at anything. I’ve made stupid, sinful mistakes, and often traveled down the wrong roads. God never gave up on me, never let go, and welcomed me home when I stumbled back seeking His grace.

Thanks to undiagnosed Lyme disease for six years, my medical journey could be used by several medical television shows. I've been poked, prodded, and diagnosed with way too many diseases. After an eleven year struggle, God granted healing!

I serve an awesome God who has helped me through many difficulties including, molestation by a baby-sitter, assault, rape, divorce, cancer, death of loved ones, seven surgeries, and chronic illness. 

There's nothing enjoyable about suffering and pain but I wouldn't change it for the world, because through it all I’ve grown closer to the God who created, formed, and loved me before I was born.
