He is risen, indeed!
This has been such a wonderful Easter morn. I’m reminded that on this fallen earth, we see a mere shadow of what God has awaiting those who trust in Christ. All that is good and sweet and precious to us here will be perfected in the eternity that awaits us in the New Earth, one free from sin and death and pain and addictions and hate and sickness and loss.
At the sunrise service, we put redemption cards in a box on top of a bonfire. On those redemption cards, we’d written those things we are asking God to remove from our lives. The fire was lit and up it all went in smoke. My card included things I wanted forgiveness for, things I wanted to overcome, things I hoped to see come true in the coming year.
If you noticed my absence from blogging for the past five days, it was due to some health issues, which ended with me being on some meds that knocked me cold. No blogging when one sleeps for hours. I am feeling considerably better, and the tests the doctor did showed nothing serious. I’m asking God for that to remain the case as I am now a few more days behind where I should be with my work.
And the health stuff reminds me again of how fallen things are here on earth, and I look forward to the perfected resurrected body that will be mine in eternity.
In the grip of His grace,
