I hope you all had a glorious Easter! I know that I did…a beautiful church service and time spent in the company of new friends. Easter Sunday is a great start to a new beginning. Spring is here and we have been given a glorious gift–the perfect peace of Christ. The cross is the outward sign of the decision we have to make in our lives and to know that we don’t have to live in fear anymore because Jesus bore all our sins for us. Here are the last few reflections from the photo challenge. I look forward to applying these words and thoughts to all I do in life. May it help you in your fitness and life journey too…
CUP: As I reflected on the Maundy Thursday service last week, I was reminded that Jesus gives us the cup of life. If we are willing to let go of our own control and drink from the cup, we will be living with so much happiness. No it won’t always be easy, but it is the only way to find that true inner peace.
FAR: I am far from perfect and stray away from keeping my faith right with me at all times. It can be tough and sometimes far away, but the minute I pause and reflect, read a word or two from the Bible, I am reminded that it’s never really that far from me. We are never left stranded far from home.
ROOTS: It’s where I come from and who I am. Think on it. God made us all in his likeness and we always have those roots to hark back to. That is an awesome feeling.
