I’m so grateful for Easter. It means I get a second chance!
The fear of death, at first glimpse, may not appear to be a “feel good” topic. And yet it’s probably the most comforting topic ever to be found. Why? Because someday, we will all take our last breath, and it’s incredibly comforting to know what lies after, and where we will be going. There’s no reason to fear death, dear friend. Jesus made a way for us to live with Him forever! Listen to this podcast to learn more, and be encouraged.

A prayer offered with Holy Week in mind . . .
Merciful God, release us from the time of trial and oppression that we may witness to the eternal hope of grief becoming joy and life rising from death. Amen. — Unknown
“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.”–Psalm 94:19
“Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10
Here’s some really good news for the day . . .
The Lord’s mercy is new EVERY morning. No matter what happened yesterday, because of Christ, today, our slate can be wiped clean!
That means we can let go of yesterday’s mishaps, thank God for His mercy, and embrace the newness of the day with a grateful and joy-filled heart 🧡
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. — Lamentations 3:22-23
