Why is it so hard to say goodbye to those that we love. The thought of not seeing them again is scary and difficult. Life is hard enough. Give us the strength to make it through somehow. Open our eyes so that we can see the way that You do: that this life is not the end. Two thousand years have passed since Your resurrection and yet Your life still touches our hearts everyday. In Christ there are no good byes or end and because of You we can be strong and face this world knowing that You will not forsake us or leave us in our time of need. We are never alone. We are never abandoned. So let’s hold on to Jesus with all that we have. Jesus is the truth, the way, and the light. All who believe in Him, even in death, will live forever beyond this life. So Lord thank You for that promise, for your love and for you grace.

The world around us is dark and it is so easy to doubt what we can’t see. The world constantly challenges Your existence in it’s chaos. Why is it so easy to believe in You during the good times and so hard in the bad? Why are our human eyes limited to what we can see and not what we should see? You, who began a good work in all of us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. See, faith not doubt is the gift of God to all of his children. It is through faith that we can see beyond the limitations of this world and understand that God has a bigger plan. This life is not the end. The battle has been won at the price of the risen Lamb. We are never alone with God on our side. Help us to remember that each day is a gift. Each person is a treasure. And each moment is another opportunity for us to grow in our relationship with You and Your Son and Your Holy Spirit. Be with us now and always. Amen.

Easter 2012 at New Song Church. It is a happy day knowing that death and sin were crushed by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
