12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels

I confess that I can get so busy planning amazing Easter events that I can forget to truly reflect on what this event means to mankind and to me personally. Perhaps you are like me and this will inspire you like it did me.

“Untethered by time, he sees us all. From the backwoods of Virginia to the business district of London; from the Vikings to the astronauts, from the cave-dwellers to the kings, From the hut-builders to the finger-pointers to the rock-stackers, he see us. Vagabonds and ragamuffins all, he saw us before we were born.

And he loves what he sees. Flooded by emotion. Overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, ‘You are my child. I love you dearly. I’m aware that someday you’ll turn away from me and walk away. But I want you to know, I’ve already provided you a way back.’”  Max Lucado.

Perhaps, like me, you are crazy-busy on your path, take a moment to stop and thank him for his death and resurrection, for providing a way back to him from sin and shame.

Perhaps you are still out there on that path sowing your wild oats and praying for a crop failure, come back. He’s waiting for you.

Perhaps you are convinced he doesn’t want you to come back to him because you have come back and then left again so many times. That’s Satan talkin’. He’s a liar. Don’t believe him. Stop and pray and watch Jesus welcome you with open arms. Then find a place to worship him this weekend and let him know how grateful you are.

Have a Happy Easter!
