Easter Post

Heads-up: this post will deal with Christian beliefs, so if you're not interested in reading about it, feel free to visit here.

Yesterday, I had a nice little bout of negativity hitting me. Like in really. I guess it's just all the bad thoughts and feelings I kept at bay for the past month, finally washing over me when I finally let my guard down.

So I moped and felt sorry for myself. And... well... missed the point of what Easter's about.

See... we Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ this weekend. And it's really a major event for us. Because it's through His death and resurrection that we were saved, and that we could become God's children.

You see... Jesus went and basically took all of our sins and said: "I've got this." And paid the price for all of it in our place.

And because Jesus paid the price for our sins, we could enter into a much more personal relationship with God. The lovely thing about this is that (although He's been doing so from the beginning of time), God's telling us that He has everything in control. And that we need only trust Him as our Father.

We don't need to understand. We don't need to worry. We don't need to do anything special in order to gain His special favor.

All we need to do is seek His will and follow it. As long as that's happening, nothing can really stand in our way or bring us down.

Have a blessed Easter, all!

Wile I have difficulty with Jesus as sacrificial lamb, I have no problems with believing we are the beloved of God. All of us.

aster blessings and Bear hugs, Misha!

"I've got this" --- LOVE that! An excellent post. When my plans go awry, I've got to constantly remind myself that His plan is far wiser..even when the route it takes makes absolutely no freaking sense to me. I've seen a bad situation come full circle for the better enough times to trust that He has my back, always. And He's got yours too. ;)
