Easter Is Coming!!!!! - LISTEN!!!

In Christ Alone
In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
'Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost it's grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Brought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life's first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
'Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

I'm so excited!!! Easter is almost here!!!

I LOVE Easter Sunday! I LOVE what we celebrate on Easter Sunday!!!

Do you know!?! Do you know that you were bought over 2,000 years ago?

Do you know that Jesus came here in a human body and died for you? He took our place and died for all of us, but He didn't remain dead; HE ROSE AGAIN!!! Your sins have been paid for!! You can live in freedom and eternally with Him!!! If you admit that you are a sinner, confessing your sins to Him, and that you deserve to go to hell; accept Jesus as your personal Saviour; believe in Him and commit to following Him and His ways, you are HIS!!!

I have only been celebrating Easter Sunday for 4 years now! I am so thankful that I am able to reflect and celebrate what Jesus did for me so long ago! My first Easter was so powerful! I cried almost the whole service. Not just because all that Jesus had to endure and went through for me, but also because of His love, mercy and grace for me that I can't even begin to wrap my mind around! HE IS AMAZING! What a sacrifice! Thank you Jesus!

Last year, I wasn't plugged into a body of believers at Easter, which made me sad and miss Lincoln even more. However, I took Dakota to a powerful pageant that was fabulous. But I'm so excited that this year I am plugged into a great church family and I have the honor of teaching the wonderful Gospel to little people. Not only the Easter Story, but the week before, Palm Sunday, too. I can't wait to use palm fronds and sing Hosanna! I can't wait to see the enthusiasm that only 3 year olds have when we get to jump up and down and shout Jesus is Alive!!!

I pray that as it gets closer to Easter that we can reflect and appreciate what Easter is really about and tell everyone about it!!! And if you don't know my Jesus, I pray that you would ask to meet Him!! He's waiting for you!!!
