Easter Blessings!

Easter FlowersHi Friends,

I wanted to wish you all a happy Easter! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend and finding some special ways to celebrate the resurrection. We took part in a Messianic Passover Dinner on Friday night, and on Sunday we will be hosting an Easter breakfast at Calvary Chapel Living Hope and then enjoying a special worship service with friends and family. If you live nearby, we would love to have you come join us. Here’s a link to our church website with info and directions.

I love Easter! The arrival of spring and seeing nature come back to life is a great reminder of all Jesus did for us through His life, death, and resurrection. It gives me a renewed perspective on life and great hope for the future.

Spring in EnglandHere is a verse that talks about that hope: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope thorugh the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead…”1 Peter 1:3

Do you have that hope . . . do you know Him?

This weekend we celebrate Jesus . . . our awesome Savior and Lord, who loved us enough to leave all the wonders of heaven, walk the earth and experience life here, then He took the death penlty for our sin and rose from the dead to give us hope of eternal life. That’s a great reason to celebrate!

Are You Feeling Weary Today?

Do you ever feel tired, weak, and weary of the struggles of life? Are you feeling insignificant and alone and wondering who cares and who will help you through another day?

We can soar like eagles when we put our hope in the Lord.

The truth is you are chosen, loved, and so very special to God. He is the amazing creator of everyone and everything on earth. There is no one like our God. He is awesome, powerful and huge, yet He loves you and me, and He wants to give us the strength we need for whatever we are facing today. How do I know this? Because here’s what I read this morning:

“Do you know know? Have you not heard? the LORD is the everlasting God, the creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and His understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40: 28- 31.

How about you? Do you need His strength today? How can I pray for you?
