The past couple of weeks have been rough on my faith in people. I have watched a friendship start to fall apart, right before my eyes. My husband has been feeling under the weather and that has only compacted to the stress.
I woke up this morning realizing how blessed I am. Despite the not so happy events that have sprinkled us with their presence, I am feeling inspired. Holy Week came just when I started to feel hopeless, when my faith started to deteriorate, and when I was ready to throw my hands up in the air and give up. The tests of our faith, character, and trust in God stared right at me today. I made the conscious decision to open up my heart and believe in Jesus. To look at the faith my grandmother promised me when I was just a little girl. She praised the work of Jesus and constantly reminded me to not have fear in what the lord has in store for me. Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday.
Thank you God for putting that precious woman in my life.
“Do not be afraid! I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for he has been raised… Come, see the place where he lay” (Matthew 28:5-6).
Happy Easter! May Today renew your faith, feed your soul, and remind you to cherish others.
