Rise up!

Happy Good Friday to you!  Here I go again...another song. This is another song that I have enjoyed learning and really like.  It is one that I enjoy singing along to and then suddenly, just this week,  it just it spoke to me differently. I love how God does that...He does it with scripture all the time. His Spirit is quite powerful and what a privilege it is that He dwells in us!  I have consumed myself with a long to-do list for the next week and I realized that I had not even ask God for his guidance and blessings on my details.  I am working to surrender (about ever 10 minutes) to Him all of the details...all of my thoughts, all of my emotions, even my attitude.  Its a work in progress, and I am thankful to have a Savior who loves me so much that He sent His son to die for me...and all of my sinful shortcomings!  I am so undeserving and so thankful for His mercy.   Back to the song, I was singing right along and out came the words 'Christ has risen from the dead, we are one with Him again'....'He's alive, He's alive'. Indeed He is! He lived for us, He died for us, He rose for us and He overcomes all for us. We have this same victory in Him, how awesome is that!

"Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your stink?"
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God!  
He give us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you.  Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.   1 Corinthians 15:50

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is our through Christ, who loved us.
Romans 8:37

I hope that you and your family have an awesome Easter and also share and celebrate in this awesome truth!  Happy Good Friday!
