Happy Easter! Happy Holy Week!

This week before we celebrate Easter, we “celebrate” Good Friday, the day we remember Our Savior’s death on the cross. I always thought it was strange that we call it Good Friday. It sure wasn’t good for Jesus. Yet we receive the eternal, yes ETERNAL, benefit of His horrific suffering and resurrection. Thank you Father, for thinking this all the way through, so that this tough life on earth is not eternal. And thank you amazing Jesus for taking such intense pain for me. Thank you, thank you.

Tough, crazy times we are livng in. Be wise. Stay calm. How?!? Heb. 6:19 says, “We have this hope as an anchor for our soul, firm and secure.” Paul is reminding us of the anchor of God’s faithfulness. Like many of you, I have faced some pretty scary storms. I have come through to the other side intact because of the strong, stabilizing anchor of God’s faithfulness. Yes, these are crazy times but God’s promises aren’t any less valid today than they were in previous centuries. Our security is not dependent on a strong economy… it can’t be. Paul urges us in 1 Timothy 6 not to put our hope in wealth, but in God, “who richly provides us with everything.” Look at what He did for us on the cross!!

His peace always be with you!
