Luke 24:6-7: “He is not here; he has risen!”
He Has Risen Indeed!

Heavenly Father – we thank you for this day and for the many blessings that you have given us. As we celebrate Easter and the resurrection, we continue to praise you every day. Continue to be with us throughout our lives. Amen

 

 

 

Dear God – Calm us and lift us up; continue to be with us as you always are, as we move into this Holy Week with the anticipation of what is to come.

 

 

 “They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, “Hosanna!”   “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the king of Israel!” John 12:13

Dear God –as we celebrate Palm Sunday and visualize the crowd shouting “Hosanna” as Jesus went into Jerusalem, we continue to welcome you into our lives.  Be with us as we begin this week and as we ourselves shout “Hosanna.”   Amen

Be Still

“Be Still” …ugh… That’s all I have been doing, yet NOT doing these past weeks. I have been “still” by not going to work, “still” within friendships and relationships, “still” within my daily routines and “still” within my house.

But, as I reflect on Exodus 14:14, I truly have not been “still”.  I have been anxious by not going to work, stressed about how my friends, family & neighbors are doing during this new normal and just plain worried about what will happen next.

When God tells us to be “still” he wants us to trust in him, trust he is fighting for us by being by our side, and trust that he will take our anxiety, stress and worry.

So, as hard as it is to be “still” in a time we are asked to stay put, trust him & know he is fighting for us all the time. I will be still and I know I will feel “still” at the same time.
