Christ is RISEN and I rest easy
knowing I have HOPE in his promise
made TRUE.

Easter always stirs up so much emotion in me.
I fee like I live in the dark on 
"good" Friday - knowing I nailed him there.

Sunday I celebrate and am overwhelmed with
thanks and gratitude when I take in the depth
of the cross, and better yet, the resurrection and what they mean for me.

Easter has become different for me over the last 4 years.
Now - I become overwhelmed at how Christ suffered for me-
but in the same way he has suffered and rose
for them.

Little as they are, I see their sin. I see the sin they are so unaware of.
The very nature of being separated from Christ is real in them.
They are little, and they are precious in his sight - 
but as of today they do not know him. 
They are His, but they don't know it. 
It will only be a season before they understand the truth of his promise.
The promise that was made true this past weekend
as we celebrate a RISEN savior who conquered DEATH
so that THEY will LIVE next to HIM

There is not a whole lot I want to rush along in their lives,
but would savlation reach them, already?
 Genesis 49:18
"I wait for your salvation, O Lord."
I long for the day they claim the one who has already claimed them.
My heart can't rest until they see Him for who He is. 
We grow weary trying to fight the good fight for them. 
Satan will not win this battle. Christ has already won.

May Jesus reveal himself to them in time he has set for them, 
and may Tyler and I have the precious honor of being a part of their journey to him. 
 Psalm 119:81
"My soul longs for your salvation;
I hope in your word."
Even as we fail him often, may we still help them know 
who Saves.

Titus 2:11
"For the grace of God has appeared, 
bringing salvation for all people.."

Happy Easter 2013

 Genesis 49:18
"I wait for your salvation, O Lord."
