Thought of the Day—Hope was born in an empty tomb…
Thought of the Day—It is simply incomprehensible to think that One so holy could take the place of one so unworthy…call it love…call it grace…call Him Jesus…
Thought of the Day—Do you have times when you struggle with self-esteem so you go to your local Walmart and stroll around to people watch until you feel better about yourself? Are those snickers and eye rolls? If you answered yes, you may have more than just a self-esteem issue; you may have a judgmental one. It is so tempting at times to compare ourselves with others who aren’t in our “class” or standing and we write them off with a wave of our mental hand. But in all honesty, we are the true “bottom feeders” if we stoop so low and are so shallow as to judge by glance. After all, who are we except perhaps one job away from welfare, one chronic illness away from poverty, or one accident away from mental impairment? Here’s another thought; Jesus came from and mingled with “the least of these”. Who are we to give anything else but compassion to others? We need to pray for new eyes to see others as God sees them; His blessed creation. Come to think of it, that’s exactly how He sees us. Kind of boosts the old self-esteem, don’t you think?
It’s not about the bunny or the patent leather shoes
It is not about the colored eggs or mama’s brand new do,
It is not about the spectacle of baskets with candy heaping full
It is about the selfless love God has for me and you.
For God so loved the world that He gave his only son
To take our place, to take our shame, to die for everyone,
And on that first Easter morn when God raised Christ from his tomb
Hope also arose for all mankind, that our destiny would not be doomed.
So as you celebrate Easter, celebrate also the empty cross
And praise the name of Jesus Christ without whom we would all be lost,
For it’s not about the bunny but yet a sense of life renewed
Eternal life for us is possible because of the empty tomb.
Thought of the Day—Did you know that if you were the only one on this earth, Christ would have died for you? That’s how much He loves us…pretty cool huh?
Thought of the Day—Moths are naturally drawn to light just as cockroaches quickly scurry into the cloak of darkness. The same choices exist in our own lives. We can either continue stumbling in the darkness or we can truly embrace the life that only the Light can provide. For the Light drives away all darkness…
Thought of the Day—God gave us the spark of life but Satan has been tempting us ever since. God is all about light, life and love. Discern the spirits; if it’s anything other than those three qualities enticing you, chances are it’s the great deceiver…rebuke him in the name of Jesus!!
