Dear God, when storms beat around me, help me to rise above my circumstances and give you praise. Amen.
Hang in there, you are loved!
Sometimes, life is hard, and we just need to know that we are loved. We’ve all been there. When I’m feeling down, I try to remember how much God loves me. I mean really, really, loves me . . . unconditionally.
Today, as I contemplate the meaning of Good Friday, and the cross, I am reminded how deeply I am loved.

I’m so grateful for Easter. It means I get a second chance!

I think if the flowers could sing, they’d be singing praises to King Jesus, our beloved Lord and Savior—
“Yours, LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, LORD, is the kingdom; you are exalted as head over all.” 1 Chronicles 29:11
