Easters New Life

Isaiah 43:1 “But now thus saith the Lord, that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.”

Spring brings new life after the difficult winter. The harness of winter has left its mark, but under the ground the roots are ready to bring forth their beauty. Beauty that will wipe away winters stains.

Easter brings us new life as we remember the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. No one suffered as He did on the cross, and He did it for us. His resurrection gives us all new hope.

The hardness of life has left many stains or burdens on our hearts. We are not able to handle them in our own strength. Jesus wants us to lay our burdens at the cross and look to Him and know His redemptive love.

He knows our names. We are His. We are precious in His site. He will never let us go. He has us in the palm of His hands. We can trust Him in all things. See Him as He sees each one of us. Our roots in Him are strong, and beauty is ready to spring forth.

Happy Easter,
In Christ,

Content in Him

Thank you Lord God
For life itself
You are our everything
Our strength, our guide
Nothing means more
Than your love and understanding
We look to You always
In everything we do
Step by step
We follow You
And we are content
