I don’t know what your life is like or how you feel on a daily basis, but for me, life can be a bit of a struggle physically and emotionally a lot of the time. In fact, I’d go as far as saying that over the last few years I’ve sometimes considered life to be hopeless.
Hopeless…a word which when I hear it, makes my heart go out to those who use it, as I know and understand their pain when they feel life is that bad. I know compared to many my life has been fabulous, but we’re all human, and we all feel differently and react differently to every situation, so I can only tell you that yes, life did feel hopeless at times to me.
But from hopeless we can pull out the word “hope“, and just as the word hope can be found in the word hopeless, so we can find hope when life seems hopeless. Indeed this very weekend, on Easter Sunday, resurrection Sunday, we celebrate the greatest hope for the world, all because…Jesus is alive.
As I’ve just said, this coming Sunday, Easter Sunday celebrate and commemorate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ! In fact, isn’t that what we do every Sunday when we go to church, celebrate the hope that Christ’s resurrection gives us!
I hope you enjoy this wonderful song, His Glory Appears by Darlene Zschech, it means a lot to me as it talks about the hope that Christ gives us, and therefore fits perfectly with my thoughts for today:
