Renewal and Reflections

Good Morning Saints,
Easter brings a great deal of reflection on my life, every year. However, this year, it seemed more intense and critical. It could be that I have started a business and this blog, which is focused on creating words and crafts that lift His Name. It could be that I am getting older and more thoughtful of my ways. At any rate, it is happening. This Easter, I purposefully tried to put myself in the place of the people that loved Jesus, and had to live through His execution. I know this had to be heartbreaking and crushing to many of them. But, on the positive side, it was a wonderful Gift of Life. I bet it was difficult to see the positive side, while they were hurting from His death.  But, eventually Jesus appeared to many of His followers and reassured them that He Lives. So, we must strive to live our best lives and bring others into the fold.  It's the least we can do for Our Father. Be blessed and prayerful, today, saints.

Scripture for the Day

1 Peter 1:3-7 (New Living Translation)

The Hope of Eternal Life

 3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his great mercy that we have been born again, because God raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Now we live with great expectation, 4 and we have a priceless inheritance—an inheritance that is kept in heaven for you, pure and undefiled, beyond the reach of change and decay. 5 And through your faith, God is protecting you by his power until you receive this salvation, which is ready to be revealed on the last day for all to see.
 6 So be truly glad.[a] There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a little while. 7 These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.
