No time for much of a blog post today, but I did want to pop in and wish each of you a wonderful Easter.
The past couple of weeks have been very emotional for me and I had to deal with realizing that other people will always fail us and I will always fail others. It is just a sad fact of being human. We will be too busy and not be there when we should for someone . . . and others will do the same in regards us. We will not always look for the need, see how someone is hurting or be aware of the condition of their heart. And others will fail us miserably in this same way. I saw this clearly and painfully recently, but that is what makes Easter all the more powerful. We can never and should never expect mankind to meet our needs any more than we should expect a broken vessel to hold fresh water.
Only Christ can fill that void. He loves us so much He was willing to die for each and every one of us. He was beaten, whipped, had huge iron nails pierced through his hands and feet, the weight of His own body pulling against those nails as He hung on the cross, tore him inside and eventually He died a horrible, painful death. What a sad and violent story, if it just ended there. But praise God, on the third day, He arose . . . Just as He promised! He arose after paying the price for our sins and offering each of us the gift of salvation. You simply have to accept it!
Please friend, if you do not know Christ as your Lord and Savior, meet Him today. He is waiting. He wants to be the one to fill that emptiness in your heart and be there for all of your ups and downs. He wants to remold you and repair the broken vessel of your life . . . so you can overflow with the blessings of His living water.
He is risen! He is risen indeed! And for that I shall rejoice!
