The day in between Good Friday and Easter has always been a really weird day for me. It's the only day since Jesus was born, that he wasn't alive.
When I think about Jesus not being alive it leaves me feeling empty, alone, just sort of out of sync with everything. It makes me stop and think.......what if tomorrow never happened? What if I never knew Jesus? What if I never asked him into my heart? What if Jesus never rose again on the third day? I would feel like this every day. Hopeless!
God knew which one of us would choose him and make the decision to follow him long before we were ever born. He knew those who would except the free gift of salvation, and those who would turn their backs on him. But the mind blowing fact is that he made us ALL anyway.......yet he STILL sacrificed his ONE and only son.
Tomorrow is a day for new beginnings. Second chances. Do overs. Praise God he doesn't love us based on our actions or performance. No mistake or failure will ever change his love for us. We have the chance to make a fresh start each and every morning because of the sacrifice he made for all of us.
My prayer for you is that you know how incredibly loved and important you are. For you were created in Gods image. You are forgiven.........washed clean, white as snow!
May we ALL see ourselves like he does!
