Happy Resurrection Day.

I’ve written this before, but I need reminding.

I measure our life often times by the Before and the After.

And oh friends, the after is often times a hard place to rest in.

But wouldn’t you know the in between is bridged by a blood-stained cross.

And the Story is told across sixty-six books and God-breathed words and Truth is spilled out on the pages and whispered into my broken heart. 

And the after never looks like before and it’s always a lot harder and sometimes we get better and sometimes we get worse.

But He has not brought us here to abandon us now {Hebrews 13:5}

There is sunshine after the rain, burning through fog, through heartbreak, through pain.

And joy comes in the morning, after long nights of weeping {Psalm 30:5}. After goodbyes. After grief.

And after still, there is grace {2 Corinthians 12:9}, there is peace {John 14:27}, there is hope {Hebrews 10:23, Psalm 71:14-15}.

After is an empty tomb {Luke 24:5-6}.  

And the angel rebukes us … “Why do you seek the living among the dead?”

Beloved, even in death, after is life {I Peter 1:3}.

He is risen.

He is risen indeed.

Happy Resurrection day from our hearts to yours. We are grateful beyond words for these lives we’ve been given, by virtue of the Life He gave us.
