He is Risen! He is Risen, indeed, and thank the Lord that I was able to wake up at 4:45 this morning and my family made it to both our sunrise service and our normal service.
Now I am exhausted. I can feel my body ache, and I know that it may go into a flare soon. But what I know more than anything is that this pain is temporary. I am going to rest and read my book called Prayer: Our Glorious Privilege by Chuck Smith because I know through faith, God’s Word and prayer, that absolutely nothing is bigger than God, and there is nothing He cannot do.
I have started to look at my medical conditions, especially the fibromyalgia, as a blessing in a way. I am thankful that God made me the way I am, because my God is bigger than any sickness, and I find comfort through Him, and this is part of my ministry He has called me to.
This morning, both services said the same thing: Jesus gave the ultimate sacrifice so we may live for eternity through Him and only Him; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
There are so many times I don’t understand how someone could be an atheist. I have found more comfort through Jesus Christ than I ever did in the world. I see friends and family suffer, and totally disregard this amazing gift Jesus gave to us as we celebrate Resurrection Sunday. He has Risen, and He lives in us as Christians.
As I stated, I find blessings in the pain and suffering. The mental and emotional trials that I face, because this is part of God’s divine plan. To share with others that Jesus heals the soul, and that is all we need. Once we go to heaven, there will be no more suffering and no more pain. That’s worth the walk to me, and the everlasting love He gives.
If you don’t know Jesus as your personal savior, or maybe you, like me, have walked away from your faith. Do you feel like something is missing? I felt that too, until I, like the prodigal son, returned to my faith. Yes, because I walked away God allowed me to deal with the repercussions, but that is part of his grace. Because of the trials, I understand that I cannot live a single day without Him, without talking with Him, or being in His word. It is never to late.
Lord, I pray today for my brothers and sisters in Christ. Many of them suffer from many chronic illnesses and may feel at a loss, like there is no light at the end, but Lord, I know there is for them. I pray that you touch their hearts, and show them You are always there for them, Lord. You are the King of Kings and our strength forever, Amen.
Happy Resurrection Sunday, and God Bless You.
