I’ve been reflecting this weekend on the Easter message.
Actually, Messages. Plural .
Unconditional love. Love on a level that I can hardly fathom.
I can still remember the first sermon the day I returned to church … ” You can’t out sin God.”
I sat there in that church, tears streaming down my face.
The devil lies to us. We sin and we feel shame and he whispers that we can never be forgiven … that we are unloveable… and if we listen, we can get lost in the darkness
But God has already forgiven our sins.
Regardless of what we’ve done.
Sometimes you just have to have faith.
Everything is possible. There is always hope. We don’t have to live in darkness. We are not our sins.. they have been wiped clean
Something I have reflected on many times in my own life….
days of darkness when I didn’t think I would make it through… Times when I had all but given up… Stuck in my own pain and fear…
Imagine the pain and fear Jesus has to feel… the darkness and despair.
It is finished.
On the other side of the darkness is dawn. Renewal. Victory. Beginnings.
I woke up early this morning and was walking my dog… The birds were singing, there was dew in the grass… a breeze floating through the air and sunlight on my hair…
And just for a moment…. In the quiet enjoyment of these things, I knew I was walking with God.
Just for a moment, I was in heaven. Except my Sandy, Bluebell and Doc.
On the day that my walk is finished, I hope they greet me. ❤️ Like my God, I know they live again too.
Happy Easter my friends. It’s a new day
