Happy Easter!!

As you may have noticed, I talk about Jesus and my faith in God a lot. I can't help it. HE is the reason I am alive, and I can't help but talk about what I love.





I love God. I love Jesus. I know not everyone else shares that same feeling or faith. But I hope reading this you can learn a little bit more about WHY I love God with everything in me, and how He changed my life forever. Because He did. He has transformed my life and without Him I have no hope, no purpose, no joy. 

He is my Creator. 
He is my Savior. 
He is my Hope. 
He is my Comforter. 
He is my Purpose. 
He is my Joy. 
He is everything.

Why?

Because "God gave His One and Only Son, that whoever would believe in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16).


If you go through the book of Romans, it shares more detail what I believe and how I trust I'm saved...


-God has revealed his presence and existence to all creation: (Romans 1:18-19) "For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. (20) for his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. so they are without excuse."

-Neither I nor you are righteous. Nothing I nor you do will ever bring us to God's standard of holiness. (Romans 3:10) "no one righteous, not even one"

-We all fall short. Every religious person, every non-religious person, every pastor, every criminal... EVERYONE falls short. (Romans 3:23) "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God."  

-He didn't leave us in despair thought. He made a way through the impossible. (Romans 5:6) "while we were still weak, christ died for the ungodly."

-The only way to know Heaven will be your home, and Jesus your Savior is through confession. You must believe, and confess. That is all I need to be His forever! (Romans 10:9) "if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth jesus is lord you will be saved."

One of my favorite songs is "Forever" by Kari Jobe. I hope you will take a moment to listen to her incredible song and read over the lyrics. Because it talks about this day years ago when the world changed forever. When death and life was redefined. When my world truly began. 

Whatever you might believe, I hope you find comfort, joy and peace in knowing that God LOVES YOU. Period. End of sentence. No strings attached, no conditions, no standards to meet. Just a gift He HAD to give to you because it's His simple, pure nature. LOVE. 

He is Risen. He is Risen Indeed.

"Forever"


The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Saviour of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon him

One final breath he gave
As heaven looked away
The son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged
The power of hell forever broken

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated

Forever he is glorified
Forever he is lifted high
Forever he is risen
He is alive, He is alive!

The ground began to shake
The stone was rolled away
His perfect love could not be overcome
Now death where is your sting?
Our resurrected King
Has rendered you defeated

Forever he is glorified
Forever he is lifted high
Forever he is risen
He is alive, He is alive!

We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
The Lamb has overcome

We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
We sing hallelujah
The Lamb has overcome

Forever he is glorified
Forever he is lifted high
Forever he is risen
He is alive, He is alive!

You have overcome
You have overcome
You have overcome
You have overcome
