Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter celebrating that our Lord is Risen! We are forgiven and set free, and through Him we all have a brand new life ahead of us if we choose Him! It’s available, so let’s live it. No more hinderances, no more guilt and condemnation, no more lies that we believe. We are chosen by Him, righteous and holy…and by His wounds we are healed. We aren’t perfect and never will be, but we are free and forgiven. Don’t forget that ever my sisters….and don’t let me forget it either!
So far in our study, we have experienced….
and now, through Jesus we are….
Don’t you feel it? Radiant I mean? Well, I’ll be honest,I don’t exactly feel it. And as I look ahead at the titles of the next two chapters, I have a feeling they were written just for me (haha, have you felt that way yet?). Chapter 9 is about “rest”…which I admit has been my weakness. Chapter 10 is about “clear skin” (well, it’s in the title at least, it’s really about the beauty of “confessing sins”) still, my skin is anything but clear these days, my psoriasis is a bit worsened lately and confessing sins is never easy. Is it possible that we could feel radiant even though life on earth is often anything but? This week, we shall find that out and I’m depending on you more than ever to help discern how.
As I write this week’s schedule, I have been in bed for 2 days straight sick. So please forgive that it’s a little short and sweet!
